Daily Staff Reports – email@example.com
NEW MARKET — Stonewall Jackson High School senior starting pitcher Colton Harlow struck out a career-high 16 batters as the Generals rolled to an 8-1 victory over Shenandoah District rival Buffalo Gap on Monday at Rebel Park.
Harlow pitched all seven innings for the Generals, allowing only five hits in the victory.
“He won on only throwing 95 pitches over seven innings, which is very few with as many strikeouts as he had,” Stonewall coach Mike Lenox said. “His curveball was working, his fastball was on — he was throwing hard. It was probably his best outing of the season.”
Harlow also added a two-run triple at the plate for Stonewall Jackson (3-4 overall, 3-2 in Shenandoah).
Also for the Generals, Matt Murphy was 3-for-3 with two RBIs and a run scored, and Calvin Alger and Bradley Henschel added two hits apiece in the win.
