FREDERICKTOWN — It took Fredericktown Freddies sophomore Kevin McClain only 46 pitches to tame the Fairbanks Panthers.
McClain, however, had plenty of help from a Freddies’ offense that erupted for six runs and seven hits in the second inning, thumping the visiting Panthers, 10-0, in Division III sectional final baseball action.
Because the game was shortened by the run rule, McClain’s complete game effort only took five innings.
“Kevin has just done an outstanding job this year,” said Fredericktown coach Tom Craze. “For a sophomore to come into a sectional final game and throw like that is impressive. His composure is really good, he mixes his pitches well and he hits his spots.”
