MARSHALL -- North Putnam baseball continued the fast start to its 2008 campaign and a freshman pitcher put on a good performance, as the Cougars defeated Turkey Run 15-0 in four innings Thursday.
The game was shortened due to darkness.
Tyler Watson had five strikeouts while allowing just one hit in four innings on the mound.
The offensive highlight came in the fourth inning as J.T. Francies, Kyle Rooker and Brock Jones all hit home runs as part of a 10-run inning.
Jordan Berry was 2-for-2 with three RBI. Darrick Wyatt was 2-for-3 with two RBI and a double. Rooker went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer.
North Putnam (3-0, 2-0 WCC) hosts Covington at 11 a.m. Saturday.
