Prep roundup: Lions baseball back to .500 for season

Christian Heritage High School’s baseball team won 13-1 in five innings at home Monday against North Cobb Christian.

Brady Souther pitched three perfect innings and had six strikeouts for the Lions (7-7). Jonathan Lewallen pitched 2/3 an inning, Jake Stokes pitched 1/3 an inning and Nich Bartley pitched the final frame. Christian Heritage allowed one hit and the four pitchers combined for 11 strikeouts.

“We played error free and pitched well and came away with a five-inning win,” Lions coach Noah Stokes said.

North Cobb Christian walked eight and hit four batters with pitches. Christian Heritage only had five team hits but took advantage of the free passes and the opponent’s fielding errors. Spencer Robbins had an RBI double, and Jake Stokes was 1-for-2 with an RBI.

“They’re a charter school,” coach Stokes said. “It’s either their first or second year. They called and requested to play. I didn’t know anything about them before.”

Cartersville 15, North Murray 0: Cole Vaughn, Jacob Mays and Jonathan Cain each pitched in the loss for the Mountaineers (6-8, 3-2 Region 5-3A). Vaughn had North Murray’s sole hit.

• Due to the threat of inclement weather later this week, Dalton’s three-game series with LaFayette has been adjusted. The two teams are playing a double header at 5 and 7 p.m. today at LaFayette. The Catamounts host the third game at 2 p.m. Wednesday.
