No. 1 Ads edge mighty Male High


Tommy Pharr’s Farragut Admirals, ranked No. 9 in the nation in StudentSports’ latest FAB 50 high school baseball poll, passed a stiff test against one of Kentucky’s best teams Friday.

A 1-0 eight-inning victory against Louisville Male, once ranked No. 14 nationally by the Collegiate Baseball poll, was the highlight of Farragut’s 3-0 blitz during the 2004 Jacket Classic last weekend in Middlesboro, Ky.

Scott Dean’s solo home run in the eighth-inning broke a scoreless tie, and Admiral staff ace Kyle Waldrop (6-0 record) tossed a complete game three-hit shutout with 11 strikeouts and no walks.

Philip Sherrard and Cody Brown each had two hits in Farragut’s 11-hit attack, but Dean’s game-winning blast was the only extra-base hit either team came up with the entire game.

Farragut’s success came against high quality, as 6-foot-7 Male pitcher Scott Green is widely considered Kentucky’s top pitching prospect.

The state’s top-ranked Admirals entered mid-week action with a 27-1 overall record, 7-0 in District 4-AAA.

FHS 15 MIDDLESBORO, KY 1

A 10-run sixth-inning blew this game wide open Saturday, as senior centerfielder Harrison Eldridge had a grand-slam and bunt single in the same inning.

David King had two hits and one RBI for the winners. Clay Ivy added one hit and one RBI.

Winning pitcher Tyler Powell tossed three innings, allowing one earned run, four hits and one walk while striking out four.

Phillip Heyming tossed two innings, allowing just one hit.

Tony Delmonico, the Admirals’ everyday shortstop, saw his first action of the 2004 season after recovering from a broken thumb. But Delmonico’s work came on the mound, striking out two in one inning of work.

FHS 14 MORRISTOWN EAST 1

Winning pitcher Sherrard worked four innings, allowing one earned run, six hits and no walks while striking out four.

Ryne Steben relieved, and in one inning of this five-inning game struck out the side.

Offensively, Brown led the way with three hits, including a two-run homer. Eldridge added two hits and scored three runs.

Drew Reagan added a solo home run, while Waldrop and Dean each doubled. Dean provided three RBIs.

FHS 15 HERITAGE 0

Rob Catapano was one passed ball away from a perfect game April 14 against Heritage.

The sophomore (7-0 record after a complete game one-hit shutout at West Monday) struck out 13 in five innings versus HHS, as only three batters managed to put the ball in play.

Waldrop led the offense with two home runs and a double, including a grand slam, with eight RBIs. Brown added three hits, including a solo home run and a pair of doubles. Eldridge added a double and two RBIs.
