Anderson praised the defensive play behind him as well, one day after the Pirates were troubled by three errors in a narrow escape against Silo.

“We had no errors. I'll take that any day,” he said. “I was a little sore after throwing yesterday, so I just tried to throw as many strikes as I could and let the defense make the plays.”

Red Oak shuts out Asher

Junior Tyler Parks scattered five hits and struck out eight as Red Oak defeated Asher 6-0 for the Class B baseball title.

Red Oak busted the game open with a five-run third inning, and Parks kept Asher off the bases, only allowing two base runners in an inning once all day.

“It wasn't a great day to swing the bat in these conditions, so we wanted to go right at them,” Red Oak coach Trey Booth said. “Tyler has been getting better and better, but today, it was top shelf.”

Garrett Noah led the Red Oak offense with two singles and two runs scored, and Dylan Fazekas added a two-run double in the big third inning.

“There's something to be said about kids with timely hits,” Booth said. “They've done that all year. We're not a great hitting team, but we have kids that find a way to get it done. Big hits in big situations, and that's why we got the win today.”

Red Oak has won four of the last five Class B state titles in fall and spring combined and has six total (three fall, three spring), all coming since 2008.
