Saturday, April 27, 2013 5:00 AM
Jordan Tingle had a dominating performance on the mound and keyed both scoring rallies to lead Trimble County to a 7-1 victory over Williamstown Friday at home.
Tingle struck out 10 and allowed just one unearned run while twirling a two-hitter for the win. Tingle also had two hits and two RBIs.
"Jordan threw the ball well," Trimble coach Frank Ragland said. "He was around the plate and the balls that they hit, we caught."
Kyle Sparks led off the third for Trimble with a double and Jacob Linden reached on a single. Tingle then scored both with a triple and came in on Andrew Young's single for a 3-0 lead.
Williamstown got an unearned run the sixth but Trimble answered with four runs in the bottom of the inning to pull away. Tingle led off the scoring with a single and Zack Beard, Michael Dunaway, Rob Brooks and Hunter Duncan added hits for the final margin.

Cubs fall to Cougars
Madison baseball finished on the wrong end of a 5-1 loss to North Harrison Friday at home.
The game was a late edition to Madison's schedule with the two teams agreeing to play just two days ago.
The Cougars scored two unearned runs in the second, added a solo run in the fifth and two in the seventh. Madison got its lone run in the third when Brandon Mann singled and later scored on Clark Vaughn's sacrifice fly.
"It was good to play the game but I didn't think our guys were as excited to play as I thought they should have been," Madison coach Shannon Barger said. "We've won four of our last five but I didn't think everybody was as into it as they should have been."
Vaughn suffered the loss on the mound after going six and one-third strong innings. Ethan Leach pitched the final two outs.
"Clark threw a great game," Barger said. "We had two errors in the second that led to two runs. We didn't help him."
Madison (5-10) heads to Triton Central today for a three-team round robin with host Triton Central and South Dearborn.
