Redmen cook up 10-0 win
A cup of pitching, an ounce of defense and a tablespoon of hitting. Mix well and bring to a boil.
The Rock Hill Redmen used the perfect mixture to get a 10-0 win over the St. Joseph Flyers on Tuesday.
“We played well. We played good defense, we hit the ball and Kidd and Schob both threw really well. That’s a good recipe for a win. You put all three together and you’re going to win,” said Rock Hill coach Barry Litteral.
Kaleb Kidd and Brandon Schob combined on a four-hitter for the Redmen. The duo struck out eight and did not walk a batter.
Heath Carpenter led the offense as he went 2-3 with a double and four runs batted in. Cody Lewis was 3-4 with a double and two RBIs, Jake Blagg 2-3 and Schob 2-4 wit a double.
Chase Walters was 2-3 for the Flyers.
The Redmen took a 1-0 lead in the third when Landon Smith walked, stole second, Blagg singled and Carpenter hit a sacrifice fly.
Rock Hill scored five runs in the fourth to lead 6-0.
Schob, Lewis and Kidd all doubled for two runs. Kidd moved up on a ground out and Trae Crabtree squeezed home a run.
Smith and Blagg singled and Carpenter had a two-run double.
The Redmen got their final four runs in the seventh.
Blagg walked and stole second. Carpenter singled and stole second and Sean McFann and Schob had RBI singles.
