Albany -- Baconton Charter freshman Brock Pinson had a heck of a varsity debut Thursday when he struck out nine batters, walked two and gave up just two hits in a 13-0 win against Dougherty.
And it only lasted five innings.
"It's good to see that from a young guy, to see him eat up innings like that," said Baconton Charter coach Bubber Birdsong, whose team improved to 2-0, while Dougherty fell to 0-1.
Dougherty's two hits were delivered by Josh Fuller and Bryant Whitaker, but it wasn't enough to surpass Baconton's hit parade of 13 knocks, including four blazers who had two each: Tyler Neeld, Douglas Nobles, James Davis and Keifer Daughtry.
Baconton's next game is today at Early County at 6 p.m., while Dougherty plays again at home today against Miller County at 5:30 p.m.
WORTH COUNTY 8, DODGE COUNTY 4:
The Rams improved to 2-0 on the season thanks to Corey Odum on the mound (7 IP, 5 K, 2BB) and the bats of Allen Fender (two hits) and a home run by Bryant Reddell.
Worth scored two in the first, two in the third and then broke the 4-4 tie with four in the sixth.
Fender finished with three RBI, while Reddell had two and Will Peacock and Luke Powell with one each.
WESTOVER BOYS SOCCER WINS AGAIN:
