ARGYLE – Argyle’s Cameron Treuthardt fired a two-hit shutout with seven strikeouts over five innings of work and his Orioles backed him with a seven-run outburst in the first inning en route to a 10-0 victory over the Black Hawk Warriors in a Six Rivers East baseball game played at Veterans Park on Tuesday, May 16.
Brent Ritschard drove in two runs and Gavin Johnson scored twice for the Orioles, while Treuthardt helped his own cause by going 2-for-3 with a double, a run and a RBI.
Preston Bevins drilled a double in the third inning and Jett Rufenacht ripped a triple in the fifth to account for the Warriors’ hits, but neither scored as the Warriors were shutout for the third consecutive game.
