March 2, 2024

Cole Crawford, shown here sliding in safely in an earlier game this season, had one of only two Canes' hits Saturday in a 2-0 loss to Hernando (Miss.) at the PG High School Showdown.

A pair of Hernando (Miss.) pitchers limited the Purple Hurricanes to just two hits and one walk Saturday at the Tigers blanked Cartersville, 2-0, in their final consolation games of the 2024 Perfect Game High School Showdown.

The Canes finished 1-3 in the tournament.

Caleb Daniel’s double in the first inning and Cole Crawford’s single in the sixth were the only Cartersville safeties. Tristan McKibben reached on an error in the fifth inning, a pitch hit Luke Miller in the sixth and Daniel drew a sixth-inning walk for the only other Canes’ base runners.

Hernando pitchers Meyer Maddox (6 IP, 0R, 2H, 1BB, 2K) and Luke Romine (1 IP, 3K) kept the Hurricanes’ bats silenced for most of the day. The Tigers improved their season mark to 9-1.

Jackson Harwell (2 IP, 1R, 0ER, 2H, 1BB, 1K) was tagged with the tough-luck pitching loss despite not allowing an earned run. Maddox Frazier (4 IP, 1R, 0ER, 3H, 1BB) and Nolan Elrod (1 IP, 0R, 0H, 0BB, 1K) also pitched for Cartersville.

The Canes (7-3) host Rockmart on Wednesday and Adairsville on Friday. Both games will be at 5:55 p.m. They will play at Adairsville on Saturday at 1 p.m.
