Pulaski County shuts out Patriots, 2-0


Somerset —

Tyler Wesley followed Lorman with a bunt back to Young on the mound.
However, the Patriots pitcher fumbled the ball for an error, setting up the Maroons with runners and first and second with nobody out.
After a sacrifice bunt by Dustin Vaught, the Maroons were in position to break through, with runners at second and third and only one away.
However, Young fan-ned Taylor Gover for the second out of the frame, bringing up designated hitter Jacob Denney to the plate.
Denney immediately found himself in an 0-2 hole, but on a day when Young made very few mistakes, his 0-2 pitch to Denney was just that — a mistake.
Denney laced the 0-2 pitch into left center field for an all-important, two-run single, and that would be the only runs PC would need on this day to garner a victory.
“Pitching was dominant today on both sides, and both clubs had trouble at times putting the ball into play,” pointed out coach Masten.
“We took advantage of the one big opportunity we had today there in the third inning,” Masten stated. “We got a couple of guys on and bunted them over, and then we got the big hit from Jacob Denney to drive those two runs home.”
Leading Lincoln County 2-0 through five innings of play, Smith turned the ball over to Blake Burton who came out of the PC bullpen and closed the door on the Pats with two out-standing innings of relief.
Burton fanned three hitters in his two innings of work, and the lone hit he allowed was another infield hit — this one off the bat of Nolan Sanders in the sixth inning.
With the win, PC moved its record to 3-3 on the year, picking up a much-needed win considering the Maroons — like most everybody else — hadn’t played in almost a week due to inclement weather.
