SOUTH POINT — Hunter Pemberton is making this new experience old hat.

In his second varsity start, Pemberton won again as he pitched a four-hitter and the St. Joseph Flyers beat the South Point Pointers 4-1 on Tuesday.

Pemberton struck out one, did not walk a batter and the only run was unearned.

“That was a nice pitching performance out of a freshman, especially not walking anyone,” said Flyers’ coach Brent Wirzfeld.

The game was scoreless until the fourth inning when the Flyers (6-3) scored three runs.

Cole Willis and Bryson Adkins singled and Chris Lewis and Jacob Clark walked for a run. Pemberton then singled home two more runs.

The Flyers got an insurance run in the top of the fifth when Justin Mahlmeister tripled and scored on a wild pitch.

South Point (6-11) got its run in the bottom of the fifth. Patrick Jones singled, Austin Majher hit into a fielder’s choice, moved up on a throwing error and scored on a hit by Anthony Fox.

Adkins went 2-3 and Joseph Payton 2-4 as the Flyers got seven hits. Jones was 2-2 for the Pointers. Fox and Brandon Conley were 1-2.
