Hudson pitches Trojans to victory


Brighton Hudson (W, 1-0) worked six strong innings, scattering four hits and allowing just one run on Thursday afternoon to help lift Garner to a 9-1 road victory over Middle Creek.

Garner (2-0) got off to a fast start once again scoring a pair of runs in the opening inning off Mustang starter Graham Edwards (L, 0-1). Alec Hulmes doubled to the gap in right center to score Levin Woodall who singled earlier in the inning and Hulmes came home when Hudson reached on an error.

The Trojan lead grew to five runs in the third inning when the sophomore, Hudson, aided his own cause with a two-run single down the line in right followed later in the inning by a Skylar Strickland RBI single (his first varsity hit).

Middle Creek (1-1) pushed across their only run of the game in the fourth when Jimmy Boyd singled in David Salmon to make it 5-1. However, that would be as close as the Mustangs would get as the Trojans scored four runs in the sixth.

The biggest hit of the sixth frame was a two-run sacrifice fly by CJ Schmitt who flew out to deep right which allowed both Woodall and Hulmes to score and cap the scoring for Garner.

Jake Ellington came on to record the final three outs of the game lifting the Trojans to a 9-1 victory.

Garner will once again be on the road tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 when they face the Broughton Capitals at Wiley Warren Field.

JV Trojans still perfect.

Brayden Sims doubled home a pair of runs for the JV Trojans as they moved to 2-0 with an 11-3 victory over Middle Creek at Trojan Park on Thursday night.

Coach Nelson and his squad will return to action at Trojan Park on Friday afternoon when they host Broughton at 4:00.
