Posted: Updated:

Columbus Catholic starter Luke Farley struck out ten to help the Sailors down the Hinton Blackhawks 3-0 after a three-run fourth inning.

After three and a half scoreless innings, Columbus Catholic got on the scoreboard first when second baseman Francis Hart hit a standup, two-RBI double. Third baseman Henry Dropps also added to its lead with an RBI single to make the score 3-0 in the bottom of the fourth.

Hinton gave Columbus a scare in the top of the seventh. Logan Jurgensmeir walked and advanced to second when Ross Wenzel grounded to second, and Blake VandeHoef singled, allowing Jurgensmeir to advance to third. With runners at first and third, Farley was able to close the door.

Farley pitched a complete game shutout, allowing only five hits and two walks while striking out 10.
