NEWCOMERSTOWN – (Mon, Apr 19, 2021) Sophomore Gaige Galigher spun a complete game allowing just three hits as he held the Trojans in check allowing the Rockets to plate 11 runs in the fifth and sixth innings en route to a 12-2 run rule victory. Galigher pitched hitless ball over the last 3 1/3 innings.
Brett Putnam got things started right away as hit a ringing double to right-center followed by an RBI single by Galigher one out later. That was all the runs the Rockets could muster until the fateful fifth for the Trojans.
Putnam led the offensive attack with a double while Galigher, Ethan Myers, and Garson Imes each contributed two hits.
The Rockets are now 2-2 in the IVC and 5-8 overall. They are still holding first place in the OVAC 1-A Division.
