Redmen enjoy good day in 10-0 win over Dragons
PEDRO — It was a good day in a lot of ways.
Josh Guy pitched a three-hitter while the offense banged out 12 hits as the Rock Hill Redmen took a 10-0 six-inning win over the Fairland Dragons Tuesday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.
“He just threw strikes and threw a really good ball game. We played good defense behind Guy,” said Redmen coach Barry Litteral.
“Nathan Davenport and Seth Kuehne both made some good plays. We made good plays when we had to.”
Seth Kuehne and Zach Zornes were 3-4 and J.C. Murnahan 2-2 to power the Redmen offense..
Rock Hill got the only run it needed in the second inning.
Zornes singled, moved to third base on a pair of wild pitches and came home when Guy reached on a two-out error.
The Redmen came back with four runs in the third inning.
Murnahan singled, Carl Blankenship doubled and Zornes had a two-run single. Drew Kuehne walked and, after a passed ball, Guy delivered a two-run single.
Rock Hill got two more runs in the fourth inning to make it 7-0.
Corey Burke walked, Seth Kuehne singled, a passed ball moved the runners up and Murnahan had a sacrifice fly.
Kuehne stole third base and scored on an errant pickoff play.
The game ended in the sixth inning as Rock Hill scored three more runs.
Davenport singled, Burke doubled and Seth Kuehne had a two-run single. After Murnahan walked, Kuehne then stole third base and scored on a hit by Zornes.
