Three Woodland pitchers — Kenny Jinks, Bryce Evans, and Tommy Peed — combined to shutout the visiting Rome Wolves Monday evening as the Wildcats won 1-0.
Woodland scored the game’s only run in the bottom of the third.
Jordan Lee and Dylan Webb started the third inning for Woodland with singles and Lee eventually scored on a passed ball.
Jacob Frye had the only other Woodland hit in the game as both teams were limited to only three hits.
Connor Bullard had two hits for Rome and Chandler Bridges had the other safety.
Bridges was the hard-luck loser on the mound for the Wolves. He struck out five and pitched all six frames. The lone run against him was unearned.
