Comets shut out Tunstall 6-0, improve to 8-2 / June 10, 2021

Leo Noblin threw 5.1 scoreless innings Tuesday as the HCHS varsity baseball team shut out Tunstall 6-0.

Jaxon Lloyd came in relief for 1.2 innings as the pair threw 88 pitches, Nobin claiming a majority of those with 71. Noblin gave up four hits, striking out five and giving up a lone walk.

Noblin also paced his team at the plate, going 3-3 with an RBI. Gavin Colwell who went 3-1 at the plate had a two RBI day.

Halifax had 11 hits and no errors. The Comet offense was fairly consistent across innings. Two runs scored in the first and fifth, and one run in the second and fourth.

Halifax was scheduled to play Patrick County yesterday to end the regular season. Halifax is 8-2 as the regional tournament approaches.

Noblin started the game by giving up a single but got the next three batters on a ground out and two strikeouts.

In the bottom of the first with one down, Lloyd drew a walk. Joey Duffer came to bat with a RBI double to plate Lloyd for the 1-0 lead.

Christian Midkiff came in to run for Duffer and he scored on a Jackson Newton single to left for the 2-0 lead.

Noblin ran through the top of the second much like the first. He gave up a hit — this time a double — before he settled in and took down the next batters.

Up for the Comets with one out, Noblin smacked a single; Colin Saunders would come in to run the bags.

With two down Gavin Colwell ripped a RBI double sending Saunders home. The Comets left the bases loaded to end the frame.

In the third both teams went down in order, but by the fourth inning Halifax was busy again.

Halifax did a decent job on defense at the top of the fourth after a leadoff single by Tunstall. But that rally was cut short as Halifax turned a one-out double play to end the frame.

In the fourth Saunders scored on a Colwell sacrifice fly; in the fifth, Newton, Nathan Comer, and Colby Hancock each scattered singles, with Noblin’s RBI hit securing the 6-0 win.
