South Point made an exciting statement last night in the first game of a 3 game series to determine a state finalist in 3A baseball.

A 1-0 victory over a previously undefeated West Rowan pitcher and a No-Hitter by local standout Zach Horne, put SP in the driver’s seat to advance in this tournament.

The Gazette account of the game is pretty accurate.

Sophomore Wes Lawing, the hero of the R.S. Central game the other day, provided the scoring heroics again last night. His eighth-inning bloop single scored Jordan Edgerton who sprinted in from third base. But the real hero was Horne’s pitching performance.

Horne struck out 10 batters, and allowed only one runner to progress, and that was on a fielding error in the top of the 8th inning. For the most part, SP had come to play, they just couldn’t score off the 6 or 7 hits that they made through the game.

The next game is tonight at West Rowan, where the opposition has several tough undefeated pitchers waiting to face the Raider bats. Depending on that outcome, a third game will be played on Saturday night at South Point or the Raiders advance with a win tonight.

Go Red Raiders!
