Wildcats’ pitching ace Ryan Humphries threw a complete game two-hit shutout as the Wildcats edged by Marshall, 1-0 in a pitchers’ duel Tuesday night at Wildcat Park. Humphries threw 93 pitches over seven innings and struck out nine and walked only one.
The Wildcats scored the only run Humphries would need in the bottom of the third inning when the Wildcats got both of their only hits. Gavin Millsap led off with a single. He moved to second on a single by Austin Dodd. Millsap moved to third base and Dodd to second on a wild pitch. Millsap scored on a sacrifice fly by Kaden Argenbright. The Wildcats played error-free ball.
Marshall pitcher Trevor Clark took the hard luck loss allowing only one earned run and two hits. Clark struck out three, walked one and hit a batter.
With the win, the Wildcats improve their district mark to 7-1 and their season record to 14-8. The Wildcats take on third place Texas High in Texarkana Friday night.
