Junior Cole Hughes threw a two-hitter to lead the LaRue County Hawks to a 3-1 win over host Fort Walton Beach (Fla.) on Wednesday in the Florida Beach Bash.
Hughes (4-0) struck out eight while allowing one unearned run, two walks and two singles.
“It was a great outing,” said LaRue County coach Chris Price. “He’s been that solid all year; he just hasn’t thrown against a very good team until tonight. It was good to see.”
The Hawks (10-3) scored all their runs in the top of the second on two wild pitches and a squeeze play.
