High school roundup: Notre Dame fights off Kennett

Sunday, April 25, 2010

Colton Young nipped Trey Bazzell in a battle of Division I-bound pitchers.

Young led Notre Dame to a 4-3 victory over Kennett in baseball action Friday.

Young, who will play at Tennessee-Martin next season, struck out two and walked three over seven innings. He also drove in two runs with a double in the fourth inning.

Young's defense helped him out in the seventh. Kennett's leadoff batter reached first and the next batter ripped a line drive down the first-base line. But Bulldogs first baseman Wes Glaus made a diving catch and tagged first base for a double play to help out Young.

Bazzell, who will play at Murray State next season, struck out five.
