Tim Stamper, the head baseball coach at Allen County-Scottsville High School, has a good feel as to what his team is about and what the Patriots can and can’t do. That’s why Stamper, heading into Wednesday’s District 15 game at Barren County High School, set a goal for his team to score one run an inning.
Well, Allen County-Scottsville wasn’t quite able to meet its goal against the Trojans, but the Patriots did get timely hits and manufacture enough runs to beat the Trojans, 7-4.
“When you get to this point of the season, you know who you are,” Stamper said. “And we know we’re not a big hitting team, we’re not going to drive the ball around the ballpark.
“We came in with a game plan where we wanted to score one run an inning. I am not very good at math, but if you do that over seven innings, that’s seven runs. And with our pitching, we’re OK with that.”
The Patriots improve to 10-13 on the season and 4-1 in district play, while the Trojans fall to 9-19 overall and 1-5 in district competition.
