Central 6, Red Bank 4 (10 innings)
RED BANK, Tenn. (WRCB) -- Colton Morgan pitched another gem and Central scored two runs in the top of the tenth to secure a 6-4 road win at Red Bank Monday night to keep pace with East Hamilton in the District 6-AA standings.
With the win, the Purple Pounders (19-5) improved to 9-0 in district play, but still trail the unbeaten Hurricanes (18-7, 11-0) in the win column. The loss dropped third-place Red Bank to 5-4 in league play.
Morgan and Hagan Wilkey battled in a pitcher's duel that remained scoreless until the fourth inning.
Central's Ryan Poole started the scoring with a two-run double to center, but Red Bank answered with a Tyler Phillips RBI single in the bottom half of the inning before tying the game when Gage Winton scored on a wild pitch.
The two teams traded two runs over the next three innings to force extra frames, with Central finally pulling ahead in the tenth.
The two teams will play again at Central Tuesday evening.
