Local 15-Year-Old All-Stars get convincing win

Two-time state champs beat Montgomery County 16-0 on Friday game of tournament

Somerset —

If the Somerset-Pulaski County 15-Year-Old All-Stars continue to hit the ball like they did on Friday evening, all the other teams in the 2013 East Kentucky Babe Ruth 15-Year-Old State Tournament better watch out.
Montgomery County was Somerset-Pulaski’s first victim of the state tournament, as the two-time defending state champion took down Montgomery County, in five innings, by a score of 16-0 at Pulaski County High School. 
The bats were hot for Somerset-Pulaski, as they blasted 13 hits in five innings to move past their first opponent of the state tournament. With the 16-run win over Montgomery County, the local all-star team earned a match-up on Saturday with South Lexington. 
In the first inning alone, Somerset-Pulaski jumped out on Montgomery County by scoring six runs on six hits. 
Somerset-Pulaski, in the second frame, plated four runs across the plate to run out to a 10-0 advantage over Montgomery County. Somerset-Pulaski scored four runs on three and a pair of miscues by the visiting team. 
Once again, Somerset-Pulaski had another big inning, as they exploded for six runs in the third inning to grab a 16-0 lead. The big hit of the frame was a three-run home from Logan Ramsey, who sent a ball over the left center field fence. 
Wade Purvis, who pitched the first two innings for Somerset-Pulaski, earned the victory. Purvis gave up one hit and had three strikeouts. Justin Walker gave up one hit and had four strikeouts in a pair of innings of work. Isaac Stephens, who pitched an inning, gave up zero hits and fanned two batters.
At the dish, Somerset-Pulaski was led by the pair of Ramsey and Trevor Howard, who both tallied three hits each. Ramsey finished with a double, a home run, and four RBI’s. Howard chimed in with three RBI’s to go along with his three hits.
