Harrison County pitching walked seven, hit three batters and gave up nine hits in a 12-0 loss to South Laurel on Friday.
The Thorobreds also made four errors as they picked the wrong time to have a poor outing.
South Laurel came in with a 9-1 record and took control early scoring four times in the first and five more in the second inning.
Harrison County used seven pitchers with only Mark Taylor able to pitch effectively. The Cardinals’ sophomore Braden Miller allowed just three hits and a walk in the complete game effort.
