Fred finished with three strikeouts. He didn’t walk a batter.
“He really did a good job of keeping the ball down,” DuQuoin coach Tim Craft said. “We know Mt. Vernon’s a great team, and they’ve got some kids who can really swing. And he really controlled the game by just putting the ball where he wanted to all game long.”
Mt. Vernon is 7-3 this season and hosts East Peoria for a doubleheader starting at 11 a.m. today.
