Justin Sooter and Michael Metcalf also pitched in the game.
Meanwhile, the Lady Badger softball team (7-16) lost to Liberty Hill 16-0.
The game – which ended in the fourth inning due to the run rule – was dominated by the Lady Panthers from the very beginning, as Liberty Hill scored seven runs in both the first and third innings.
Blake Webb was the only Lady Badger to muster a hit in the game.
