Cass pitching stymies Murray County


A trio of Cass pitchers combined to shut out Murray County in a 3-0 home win Monday.

Logan Nelson started and earned the win after tossing four no-hit innings with just a walk and five strikeouts; Wyatt Karlovich gave up one hit in his two innings and Nic Wallin allowed one knock in his lone frame to earn the save.

In total, the Colonels allowed just three base runners, while striking out eight on just 86 total pitches.

Offensively, Cass (5-5) grabbed an early 2-0 lead after its first three hitters reached base.

Bryson Markley singled and came home on Clay Means' double. Means then scored on a single from Evan Hinton.

Murray County (2-7) settled in after that quick burst and didn't allow a run until the bottom of the sixth when Gavin Young's single brought home Steven Spell, who reached on an error to open the frame.

Cass finished with six hits. Nathan Smith collected two of them, while Markley, Means, Hinton and Young had one apiece.

The two teams play again Thursday with the Colonels making the trip to Chatsworth for a 5:30 p.m. start.
