Hancock County added another run in the second on two Glasgow errors combined with a stolen base and a wild pitch. Shoemake retired the next eight batters in a row with help from Josh Boggs, who caught five fly balls in right field, during the streak, including four in a row.
With one out in the fifth inning, the Hornet's Garrett Pate and White singled. They moved to second and third on a wild pitch. Glasgow's coach Royse then elected to put Keown on base with an intentional walk to load the bases. Shoemake then walked in the fourth Hornet run of the game when he threw a full count ball to Tristan Bozarth, Hancock County's cleanup hitter.
Green replaced Shoemake on the mound. The next batter, Cheek, hit a hard grounder to Ryan Hinkley, at third, who threw home, retiring White, to get the second out. While pitching to Jake Powers, Keown scored on a passed ball.
Hancock County plated an insurance run in the top of the seventh on a Pate single, a Scottie error, a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly.
Allard earned the win. He allowed four hits, struck out three and walked one. Patrick McBride relived him pitching to just one Glasgow batter.
“We didn't get (many) opportunities today because Hancock played flawlessly defensively,” Royse said.
Getting the four singles for the Scotties were Bryce Logsdon, Connor Glass, Boggs and James Kingery. Glasgow is now 17-7 on the year. The Hornets are 13-10.
Glasgow began playing in the All “A” Classic baseball tournament four years ago and made a trip to the state tournament the three previous seasons. The Scotties return to action Tuesday at 5 p.m. Against Monroe County in a 15th District game, weather permitting.
