Mack Anglin and Colton Liszkai combined to pitch a one-hitter in Highland’s 3-0 win at home against Fredericktown Wednesday.

Anglin pitched the first first six innings to earn his second win of the season and Liszkai earned his first career game by closing out the contest. Offensively, the Scots got two runs in the second inning and added one in the fifth. Matty Reid finished with two hits, while both Drew Duncan and Tate Tobin smacked doubles for Highland.

Cardington Pirates

Devin Pearl pitched a one-hitter on Wednesday as Cardington edged league rival East Knox 1-0 at home.

While the Pirates out-hit their opponents 5-1 in the game, the only run crossed the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning to put an end to the contest. Devin Jackson finished with three hits in four at-bats and drove in the game-winning run.

Northmor Knights

Two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning allowed Northmor to fight off a Centerburg comeback bid and take a 5-4 win on Wednesday.

After falling behind 2-0 in the second inning, the Knights scored once in the third and twice in the sixth to take a one-run lead. They gave up two in the top of the seventh, but turned around and managed two of their own in the bottom of the frame to improve to 3-1 on the year.

“We were able to hang around with good pitching and defense and get hot with the bats late,” said head coach Buck Workman.

Kyle Kegley, Chris Bood and Sam Eichorn combined to strike out four, walk five and surrender five hits. Eichorn picked up the win by getting the final two outs in the top of the seventh inning.

Both Wyatt Reeder and Mostyn Evans had two hits in the game, while Jordan Wiseman added a double.
