Fort Loramie 3, Jackson Center 0

The Redskins won a pitcher’s duel in an SCAL game at Jackson Center on Monday.

The hits were scarce on a cold, wind-blown day. Carson Regula held Loramie to just three hits in an outstanding complete game effort. Loramie’s CJ Billing also allowed only three hits in his complete game shutout.

Fort Loramie scored in the top of the first. Carter Mescher reached on a hit-by-pitch and then went all the way around to third on an errant pick-off attempt. He scored on an RBI groundout by Billing.

In the second inning, Darren Hoying got a two-out single but was stranded. In the third, Nathan Raterman drew a walk with one out but he was also stranded as Regula would retire Billing and Jared Middendorf to end the inning.

Loramie again would leave another runner on base in the sixth. Middendorf singled to right but Regula again buckled down and retired the next batter.

The Redskins got an insurance run in the seventh when Hoying walked. Shane Hilgefort would follow that with a hit to right center. Hoying advanced to third and then scored while Hilgefort was caught in a rundown after trying to stretch his single into a double.

Billing silenced Jackson Center’s bats after the Tigers threatened in the bottom of the first. Francis and Reichert both got hits in the inning, but Billing was able to navigate through the inning and keep the Tigers scoreless. He settled in from there and finished with 4 four strikeouts with no walks.
