PCHS RIDES TUTEN'S ONE-HIT SHUTOUT TO FIRST REGION WIN
Pierce County opened Region 1-AAA play knocking off visiting Islands 10-0 on Friday behind the one hit pitching performance of junior Madison Tuten. The southpaw threw his first career complete game and recorded his first career shutout allowing just three base runners in a dominating outing. “Madison’s performance tonight was huge,” said head coach Greg Gay. “He had three pitches and was able to locate each one. He picked off two of the three base runners they (Sharks) had. He’s just really matured on the mound.”
PCHS (3-1 overall, 1-0 region), playing for the first time since an eight-inning loss to Ware County six days earlier, started its scoring spree with a two-run third for all the runs Tuten (6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 6 K, 1 BB, 1 HBP) would need. Tuten mowed down the Sharks (2-1, 1-1) and did not allow a hit until a leadoff single in the fifth to a team that came in averaging 14 runs a game over their first two outings.
Meanwhile, Tuten’s teammates made Island’s ace pitcher work hard. PCHS batters saw 98 pitches in four innings thrown by the Sharks’s right-hander. “I’ve never had a team go 24-of-28 in quality at bats,” the veteran coach said. “That’s an unbelievable 86 percent. We had some great at bats fighting off two-strike pitches and our outs were productive. “That really helped us to get their ace out of the game after four innings. He threw 98 pitches and was laboring there at the end.”
After leaving the bases loaded in the first and stranding a runner at third in the second, the Bears finally got to Chandler Wilkerson (45 pitches through two innings) in the third scoring the first runs against Islands this year. Austin Allen (four runs) drew the second of his four walks on the night to start the frame. He raced to third on a single by Zach Goble (2-for-2) and scored on an overthrow back to the infield. Goble, who took second on the play, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on an error by the catcher.
Caleb Turner’s (2-for-3) one-out double started a three-run rally in the fourth. He moved up on an error and stole home. Stetson Smith (1-for-3) drew a two-out walk as did Allen. Both scored on Goble’s double for a 5-0 lead. “Caleb and Zach continued to swing hot bats for us,” Gay said. “Austin just does whatever it takes to get on base. He has been a great catalyst for us so far.”
The Bears picked up a run in the fifth doing all the damage after two outs and nobody on. Ganon Graham delivered a pinch-hit double and scored on Turner’s double upping the advantage to six runs. “At 6-0 the guys could have put things on cruise control,” said Gay. “But they stayed aggressive at the plate and on the bases and decided to end this game early. I’m very proud of the them for having that type of attitude.”
PCHS ended the game in the bottom of the sixth scoring four times. Stetson Bennett drew a leadoff, four-pitch walk with Smith following with a single. Each moved up on a wild pitch. Allen followed with a walk ahead of another wild pitch to score Bennett. A third wild pitch plated Smith to increase the lead to 8-0. Following a walk to Goble, Kyler Allen (1-for-4) delivered a run-coring single to drive home Austin Allen. After Goble was cut down trying to steal and Kyler Allen moved up on yet another wild pitch, Dakota Martin ended the game with a run-scoring single.
Pierce County will host New Hampstead on Tuesday at 6 p.m., Brantley County on Thursday in region play and close out the week entertaining non-region Class AA Berrien on Friday.
