WHITE HOUSE – Senior Dustin Palmer came within one out of a complete game on Monday night, but the left-hander combined with sophomore Zane Brown to no hit the East Robertson Indians in a 10-0 win.
White House scored a run in the bottom of the sixth to end the game by run rule, after Palmer got into a jam with an error and a walk in the top frame of the inning, and Brown induced a pop up for his only out of the game. While Palmer struck out eight and walked two, White House came alive with the bats to even their season record at 2-2.
Hunter Matherly was 3-of-4 with two triples and a single, scoring four runs including the final one of the game when the ball got to the back stop.
Caden Blackford and Brown each got two hits, and Palmer, Eric Rogers and Tanner Carpenter each got a base hit. Sam Abshire and Rogers both scored twice.
Palmer (1-0) picked up his first win of the year after a no decision in the opening game last week, and now White House heads to Jo Byrns on Tuesday in non district play.
