Ava’s Ben Loge and Mtn. View-Liberty’s Zane Cornman hooked up in a pitchers’ duel here last Thursday afternoon that resulted in a 1-0 SCA win for the Ava Bears.
The only run of the game came in the bottom of the fifth inning when Caleb McFarlin scored on a single by Shannon Porter.
McFarlin was a designated runner for Loge.
Ava had just three hits in the game and Liberty got four hits off Loge.
