FREDERICKTOWN — Fredericktown Freddies’ pitcher Nash Cunningham went the distance on Tuesday, while he and his teammates dealt a 20-5 clubbing to the visiting Northridge Vikings in their run-rule shortened Mid-Buckeye Conference baseball matchup.
“It’s a big win for a number of reasons,” said Fredericktown coach Tom Craze. “It’s big in the league. It’s big for the tournament draw that’s coming up. We played really well tonight. I couldn’t be more proud of our kids. They really put it together for five innings. We got the great hitting and great pitching when we needed it. One through nine in the lineup got it done.”
It was a gutsy performance from Cunningham, who had a shaky start. He appeared to have trouble hitting his spots early on, giving up a run in the first and three runs on three hits in the second. Cunningham, however, managed to turn it around and set down seven of the final eight batters he faced to go the full five innings.
