Glasgow advances to district baseball final

Glasgow Daily Times

TOMPKINSVILLE — Cord Glass had one of his better mound outings of the season Tuesday. In 58 pitches, Glass threw a shutout, allowed five hits and struck out four with no walks, lifting Glasgow to a 2-0 win in the first round of the 15th District Baseball Tournament in Tompkinsville on Tuesday.

“He had a phenomenal day,” said Glasgow Head Baseball Coach Sam Royse. “He threw a lot of strikes, stayed out of three ball counts and kept the ball down. When you throw 58 pitches in seven innings, you’re throwing a whole lot of strikes.

“In baseball, everybody knows it’s the truth, when you pitch well you’ve got a chance out there.”

Glass got the run support he needed early in the game.

In the top of the first inning, Ryan Hinkley led off with a single. He stole second, but then was picked off of second by Monroe County pitcher Kegan Graves. Connor Glass was at the plate with two outs and nailed a single. He stole second before JonThomas Green drilled a single that drove in Connor Glass.
