Glasgow High School’s baseball game with Allen County-Scottsville Tuesday night was a battle of two very good pitchers.
The Scotties threw Cord Glass and the Patriots pitched their ace Michael Carter.
Both pitchers pitched well, but in this game Carter came out on top as he struck out 11 batters to lead the Patriots to a 5-1 victory.
“When Carter goes to the mound, this is the type of game we expect out of him,” said ACS coach Tim Stamper. “He’s our guy. He’s had six starts this year, he’s gone complete games in five of them, and has five wins. He’s our senior leader.
“Tonight, I thought he stayed in a great rhythm all day long, and he kept Glasgow off balance.”
“I think tonight, Allen County beat us in every phase of the game,” said Glasgow coach Sam Royse. “We gave ourselves chances, but our hitters have to move runners. We gave ourselves opportunities and we just couldn’t get runners across the plate.”
The Patriots’ win, coupled with Barren County’s 6-1 victory over Monroe County Tuesday night, shows just how close the 15th District is right now.
