  • Five inning game dispatches Polar Bears 20-6 Tuesday night

    Freshman Jordan Martin started his first varsity game this year on Tuesday and got plenty of support from his teammates to support his solid effort. The young hurler faced the minimum number of batters in his three innings pitched, striking out five and walking no one. Meanwhile, the Thorobred offense was smashing out 15 hits and scoring 20 runs to give him all of the support one could hope for in a baseball game. 

    Josh Moss led Harrison County in hits with three in three at bats while both Shane Fowler and Jared Martin smashed home runs.
