CARY, N.C. – With assistance from his starting pitcher, top Grayson Rams prospect Austin Meadows helped his team to a comfortable ride home from the National High School Invitational on Saturday with its 1-0 victory over the Eustis Panthers.
Meadows went 3-for-3 with a double and the lone RBI of the game, which was enough run support for Grayson (Loganville, Ga.) High starter Korey Anderson. Anderson completed all seven innings and allowed just two hits, one walk, and struck out five.
Austin Simmons had both hits for Eustis (Fla.) while Anderson shut everyone else out.
Panthers pitching was also impressive. Tyler Parry started and threw five innings, allowing just the one run on four hits with one walk and one strikeout. Jeremy Migliori came on in relief and tossed a perfect frame.
Top Eustis prospect, Chris Okey, went 0-for-2 with a walk in the game. Grayson leaves the tournament with a 2-2 record while the Panthers suffered four straight losses in Cary.
