East Union 10, Corning 0

CORNING — Dustin Hoyt pitched the shutout and the East Union offense erupted with five runs in the fifth inning in beating Corning Thursday, 10-0.

“Their pitcher did a nice job of keeping us off balance,” said Corning coach Pete Nett. “We hit more flyball and popouts than any game this year. We had a runner thrown out at the plate that would have tied the game early, and that kid of took a little bit of our momentum away.”

Corning’s only hits against Hoyt were by Lane Peterson, Bryan Pearson and Ryan Carlson. Drey Barton took the loss with four innings pitch, four hits, eight strikeouts and two walks. Lance Swartz and Clint Mullen pitched the final three innings.
