CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A large crowd gathered at Civitan Park Tuesday night as the St. B 12-year-old Little League Baseball team made the most of two hits in a 1-0 victory over Clarksville National Blue.

St. B and CN Blue each put runners in scoring positions on Tuesday, but St. B capitalized on more opportunities, pulling out the win.

CN Blue out-hit St. B four to two, but CN stranded seven runners. Garrett Spain, Ford Cooper, Bryce Robinson, and Matthew Bowman were responsible for CN’s four base hits. Noah Lewis picked up a base hit for St. B while, Jackson Taylor shot a double into right field for the only extra base hit of the game.

In the third inning with Noah Lewis up to bat, St. B pushed across its only run of the day plating #9, Matthew Mahowald, on a passed ball.

Trey Elkins racked up 12 strikeouts while collecting the win. Elkins gave up just two hits over five shutout innings with only two walks.

The St. B closer, Maximus Leineweber, put away the final three outs, all strikeouts, to record the save.

Robbie Yates takes the loss for CN.
