It was a pitchers duel in the opening round of the All ‘A’ Tournament Thursday between Carroll and Trimble. The Panthers held a 1-0 lead for most of the game, adding an insurance run in the bottom of the fifth. The Raiders plated a run in the top of the sixth and had a runner in scoring position in the top of the seventh, but were not able to capitalize, as the Panthers won, 2-1.
Carroll’s Zakk Hicks struck out 13 batters on 114 pitches, while Trimble’s Michael Dunaway struck out 11 batters.
