Seigler, Canes top 2nd-ranked LaGrange
The 5th-ranked Cartersville baseball team scored single runs in the first two innings Friday night and starting pitcher Anthony Seigler tossed a complete-game, four-hitter as the Hurricanes edged visiting 2nd-ranked LaGrange at Richard Bell Field, 2-1.
Seigler (7 IP, 1R, 0ER, 1BB, 1HBP, 4K) also accounted for both Canes’ runs through his courtesy runner, John Reed Evans. Seigler was 1-for-4 and was on base a second time with a fielder’s choice.

A Cartersville error, a hit batsman, and a single by Willis Kemp accounted for the LaGrange run.
Seven different Canes had one hit each. Devin Warner’s hit was a double. Seigler, Noah Daniel, Spencer Dickey, Jordan Wilkie, Preston Welchel, and Ian Inaba had hits.
LaGrange falls to 17-11 overall and 7-3 in Region 5AAAA.
Cartersville (21-7, 7-3) plays at Troup County (16-9, 7-2) Tuesday at 5:30pm and will host Central-Carrollton Thursday at 5:55pm.
