Macks Creek shutout by Iberia
Macks Creek visited Iberia Tuesday night and the Pirates had a tough task in figuring out Iberia pitcher Cole Stillwell as the threw a no-hitter to deliver a 4-0 win over the Pirates.
Macks Creek only had two base runners all night as Justin Register walked and Tanner Smith was hit by a pitch. Macks Creek's Hunter Lane took the loss on the mound. The sophomore worked all six innings and allowed four runs, one earned, on six hits while striking out five and walking two.
"Take away the three-run second and the errors there and it's a 1-0 ballgame going into the seventh," Macks Creek Coach Jason Trusty said. “We struggled to make some adjustments at the plate tonight against a good hurler and just weren't able to repeat our performance from last night.
"Hunter threw well and kept us in it. We just couldn't get anything going to help him out offensively."
Macks Creek (8-10) will host Laquey on Monday at 5 p.m.
