St. Marys Areaâ€™s Kevin Hoy and DuBois Areaâ€™s Garrett Peterson locked up in a pitcherâ€™s duel Thursday afternoon at Berwind Park as each threw a three-hitter. Unfortunately for the Dutchmen, one of those hits was a home run by Peterson and an RBI single by Adam Young.
Hoy went all seven innings for the Dutch, giving up three hits, walking four and striking out six. Peterson went the distance for the Beavers, giving up three hits, walking one and striking out 13.
â€śKevin shut down a good hitting team,â€ť said St. Marys coach Tony Azzato. â€śUnfortunately, Peterson was sitting on a curveball.â€ť
