North Putnam baseball wins road battle at Monrovia
MONROVIA -- The first half of a WCC doubleheader was won by the Cougars' baseball team Monday who topped Monrovia 2-1 on the road.
Going the distance was Beau Green, who gave up the one earned run on 79 pitches.
Not normally known as a power pitcher, Green struck out eight Bulldogs while walking none.
"We didn't do anything spectacular," Cougar coach Lonnie Lawhorn said. "There were no great catches or anything like that. We just placed efficient defense.
"That's huge going into the county tourney. We were very pleased with the effort."
In the first inning, after a Coy Flynn single and then a walk to move him to second, Cameron McPherson knocked him in with an RBI single.
In the fifth it was Flynn again who got on base for North Putnam.
This time Flynn stole second and Jordan Nauert who hit a deep sacrifice fly to score the second run for North Putnam.
"We got back to doing the things we are used to doing," Lawhorn said.
The Cougars are 4-4 in the conference and are looking forward to North Montgomery at home Wednesday, before the County tournament on Saturday.
