PEDRO — Someone show Rock Hill coach Barry Litteral the complain department, and the complimentary department, too.

Litteral had something good and bad to say as the Redmen used the shutout pitching of Jonathan Joseph to open the season with a 3-0 Ohio Valley Conference win over the River Valley Raiders on Monday.

“I can’t complain defensively, and Joseph threw the ball well,” said Litteral. “Now, offensive is another story. We had runners in scoring position and didn’t get the key hit.”

Joseph struck out 12, walked two, gave up only two hits and did not allow a runner to second base. Aaron Dalton was 2-3 as the Redmen had seven hits.

Rock Hill scored a run in the second when Dalton singled, stole second based, took third on a throwing error and scored on a hit by Corey Noel.

Jack Goodwin and Joseph walked and Jordan Hairston had an RBI single in the third to make it 2-0.

The final run scored in the fourth on walks to Drew McClaskey and Laden Delawder, a passed ball and a throwing error.
