Singleton’s 1-hitter keys Bobcats’ win
FRANKLIN FURNACE — The Green Bobcats did what they were supposed to do and it resulted in what they wanted to do.

Singleton struck out 10 of the 15 outs, walked two and allowed just one hit.
“Singleton threw a heck of a game. He threw strikes and did what you want your pitcher to do,” said Green coach Dan McDavid. “Offensively, we did what we were supposed to do.”
Will Shope singled to start the fifth inning for the only East hit.
The Bobcats had 16 hits with Eli Webb going 4-5 with four runs batted in, Mason Barber 3-4 with four RBi and Trevor Darnell 3-3 with four RBI.
