STRUTHERS, Ohio –
Jake Corll went the distance for Dura Edge as they picked up their 3rd win of the season to get above the .500 mark for the first time this year. The Austintown Fitch right hander delivered 7 innings of 3 hit 1 walk baseball, managing to strike out 9 in the process.
Corll, to his credit, worked through some defensive struggles of the Dura Edge infield. Fiveseparate times, Athletix runners, whom all reached by an error, would make their way into scoring position. The Dura Edge starter worked his team out of trouble all but 1 time, allowing a single run to come across in the sixth, on an error.
While Corll was stellar on the mound, his victory did not come without offensive help. A 9-hit effort from Dura Edge, highlighted by Jarrod Malagise’s3-for-3 effort, provided more than enough run support to pick up the victory 5-1 over Athletix.
Jake Corll – 7 innings pitched, 3 hits, 0 earned runs, 9 Ks, 1 walk
Jarrod Malagise – 3-for-3, 1 double, 1 triple, 1 run scored
Malakai Roberts – 2-for-3, 1 double
