Steubenville 12, New Philadelphia 0
NEW PHILADELPHIA — A fourth-inning offensive explosion, coupled with an outstanding pitching performance by Caesen Sutton, propelled Big Red to a 12-0 victory over New Philadelphia Tuesday. Sutton and New Philadelphia’s Brennan Hartstine were locked in a pitcher’s duel through three innings. That all changed in the fourth when Fred Heatherington’s now 4-2 club erupted for all of its scoring. The game ended after five due to the 10-run rule.
In collecting the shutout win, Sutton allowed just one hit, a single to Connor Shimkek, and recorded six strikeouts.
J.T. Thompson led Big Red at the plate with a double and a single. He knocked home three runs. Hakim Edwards added two singles and a RBI. Aaron Ferguson plated a pair of tallies with his base hit while Sutton added a single. Quinn McCoy, Zach Smith and Cooper Blackburn all were credited with a RBI.
Big Red worked Hartstine and Kaiden Stewart, who took over with two outs in the fourth, for seven walks. Caden O’Neil also saw time on the hill for the Quakers.
Steubenville tentatively plays its home opener Thursday against Wheeling Park.
