FREDERICKTOWN — The Fredericktown Freddies are no longer undefeated in the Mid-Buckeye Conference.
Utica Redskins pitcher Dakota Young scattered seven hits while fanning seven to lead his team to a 3-1 victory over the host Freddies in MBC baseball action on Friday. Young did not allow an earned run and walked only four.
For the Redskins, it was a nice turnaround for a team that saw Fredericktown deal them an 11-1 home loss earlier in the season.
“Well, absolutely because that’s a great team over there,” said Utica coach Bren Henderson. “They’ve got a bunch of good players and we do, too. We’re just a little bit younger than they are.”
If the Redskins had any jitters about facing the Freddies, it didn’t show. Utica second baseman Daniel Green led off the game by smacking a double. He would score the game’s only earned run on an RBI single from catcher Drew Beaver to grab an early 1-0 lead.
