Carroll, Stephenson, and Schiltz key Canes' win at PG Showdown

Kennesaw State commit, Caden Carroll, carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning Thursday night as the Canes nipped Chelsea (Ala.), 1-0.

The Cartersville Purple Hurricanes got an RBI double off the bat of Kaden Stephenson in the second inning Thursday night and pitchers Caden Carroll and Phillip Schiltz made that run stand-up, in a 1-0 win over Chelsea (Alabama) at the Perfect Game High School Showdown in Hoover, Alabama.

Carroll (6.1 IP, 0R, 1H, 3BB, 10K) started on the mound for the Canes and carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning before giving way to Schiltz (0.2 IP, 2K) who struck out the final two batters to end a bases loaded threat.

Cody Fortenberry had the lone hit for the Hornets and it didn’t come without controversy. It was a swinging bunt that rolled up the third base line that the Canes believed was off the foot of the batter.

The roller was followed by a pair of walks to load the bases before Schiltz shut down the threat.

Cartersville managed only two other hits in addition to the key double by Stephenson. Miles Owen and Caleb Daniel added one hit each.

The Hurricanes (5-0) advance to the quarterfinals of the White Bracket to face Desoto Central (Alabama) Friday at 4:30 p.m. ET The winner will play again Friday night at 9:30 p.m. in the single-elimination bracket semifinals. The title game is secheduled for 11:30 a.m. ET on Saturday at the Hoover Met Complex.
