BAINBRIDGE -- A huge first inning was all North Putnam would need Tuesday as they scored 15 first-inning runs on their way to a 16-0 win over Cloverdale in five innings.

All of the Cougars got into the act, though, as J.T. Francies led the way, going 4-for-4 with a double. Berry had three hits, two homers and five RBI. Griffen Dahlstrom had three hits, including two doubles.
Kyle Rooker had two hits with a double. Diebold had the home run, a triple and four RBI. Jones collected a home run and a double.
Dahlstrom was the winning pitcher for the Cougars, going two innings with two strikeouts, one hit and two walks.
Tyler Watson pitched the last three innings for North, allowing one hit while striking out three.
Josh Flory took the loss for Cloverdale.
