In a 3 1/2 hr game tonight at Whitaker Field in Montgomery County The Indians defeated Clark County 18-12. Clark County's lead off hitter Pokey Harris led the game off with HR to left Field as the wind blew it out to put Clark ahead 1-0. Tyler Cain followed with a Single which set the stage up for Logan McQuerry who was robbed of a hit by MC 2nd baseman Blake Thomas for the force out at second. The Cards ended up scoring 3 more runs that inning when the Clark County number five hitter hit his first of 3 Hr's for the night. MC Indians lead off hitter Blake Thomas led off with a single followed by a walk to Chaz Newkirk. Indians most feared power hitter Sam Lee went deep with with a little help from the wind for his third Hr of the Season. The Indians ended up scoring 6 runs in the inning. Spencer Taber came in to pitch after the Cardinals scored 4 runs in the first and pitched a solid game but even through he gave up 5 runs and he was pulled in the top of the 7th Inning. Some Individual performances that deserves to be mention is Clark County's Tyler Cain and T.K Korb had 2 his a piece along with Logan McQuerry had 2 hits including a solo Hr in the 5th Inning. McQuerry made two erra's at third base that cost Clark County. Montgomery County who is playing all Sophomores with 1 junior and 1 Freshman was lead at the plate by Thomas who was 4-6 with 1 RBI and 4 runs scored. Sam Lee had 3 hits with 5 RBI'S including a HR. Jordan Nester played a solid 3rd Base had 3 hit's and 3 RBI'S and made 1 erra in the field. The Indians who are a very young team will go as far as Lee and Thomas will take them along with Hoby Hall's pitching. Thomas showed tonight why most coaches in the 10th region has him picked as the top Freshman. Sam Lee who I think is the best hitter in the Region is on a tear and I was told he is hitting over 600 for the year. I predict that next year that Sam Lee will be voted the best player in the Region with McQuerry second followed by Thomas. Clark County is in for some rough times after loosing Withrow and Korb after this season. McQuerry is a very good hitter will be back and the best pitcher on the team will be Brent Stoneking who is a Freshman this year. MC can beat anyone on any giving night but they will have to score a lot of runs and the pitching will have to keep teams with 10 runs or less. Tyler Cain is a player that can be very tough next year and will play at the next level. If MC had a Anthony Withrow on the mound they could do some damage in the 10th Region. These two teams will meet again in the District Tournament and Clark will probably beat them because they have much better pitching.
