Hugoton's run ends at 3A State Baseball

A baseball traditionalist loves to see a 1-0 baseball game. Players usually enjoy playing in them. However, when being on the wrong end of one ends your season, it can be a tough pill to swallow.

That's the fate that Hugoton baseball faced when they dropped a 1-0 decision to Garrett-Anderson County in a KSHSAA Class 3A State Quarterfinal on Thursday in Manhattan.

The Eagles received a great pitching performance from Jayce Korf, who struck out eight while scattering seven hits in six innings of work. However, the Eagles (15-9) could not muster a hit off of Derek Rockers, who struck out 14 in his no-hit effort. Neither pitcher allowed a walk in the contest.

Garrett-Anderson County (21-3) scored their lone run in the fourth inning, were led by Braden Blaufuss, who had three hits and drove in the game's lone run.
