Panthers split with Newton

Knoxville — In a make-up double header against Newton Thursday night, the Knoxville Panther baseball team lost the first game 3-2 in extra innings and took the second, 3-1. 

The Panthers got the scoring started in the first game in the second when Jac Agan hit a triple off the wall to send Bryce Zoutte across the plate. Hits by Tony Salato, Jard McClung, Jacob Kendall and Nolan Wallace in the third got one more run across in the third to put the Panthers up, 2-0. 

Zoutte started the game for the Panthers and kept the Cardinals off the board until the fourth. Newton took advantage of Panther miscues, coupled with solid base running, to tie the game up at 2-2. 

The score stayed that way as both teams turned up their pitching and defensive efforts. The game went into extra innings and in the top of the ninth, Newton was able to get a run across due to an overthrow to third base. They led 3-2 when the Panthers came back to bat. 

Ross Shelford got things started in the bottom of the ninth with a shot to left center. Salato put down a sacrifice bunt to advance him to second. 

Kevin Woodhouse hit a double, sending Shelford around the base paths. Unfortunately, Shelford did not beat the throw in to home and was tagged out by the catcher. 

Throughout both games, Newton's pitchers were able to jam Knoxville's batters. Knoxville put a lot of power behind their swings, but their hits stayed in the air long enough for easy catches. Thus was the case with the last out of the game to give Newton the victory. 

Game 2

Kevin Woodhouse racked up five strikeouts against the Cardinals in game two and was backed up by solid defense. Newton threatened to score in the top of the first, but Catcher Tony Salato was able to nab the base runner.
