In a season-opening Fayetteville Little League game, the Turnpike Ford UKV Tigers played the role of spoiler as Fayette County National Bank’s Fayetteville Red Sox came up on the short end, 13-3, Tuesday in a game at Cannelton.
Garrett Ware pitched three innings of two-hit baseball for the Tigers. The winners were led at the plate by Alec Hess (four RBIs) and Kaleb Politino (two RBIs), who each recorded a double.
The Red Sox tried to make the best of 10 free passes they received by swiping eight bases, three by Cy Persinger, but their bats were silent and they couldn’t generate much offense.
