ALTAMONT — Ben Mehl threw a one-hitter and struck out nine as Altamont High School manhandled Ramsey 15-0 in boys' baseball action Tuesday.

Mehl, who also went 2-for-4 at the plate with a pair of RBIs, only allowed four total baserunners in a game shortened to five innings by the 10-run rule. He retired the first eight hitters he faced with five punchouts and only walked two all game.

The Indians scored four times in the first inning, capping the frame with a two-run single from right fielder Scott Holste. Holste was 2-for-2 with two base hits and three RBIs.

Altamont's other 11 runs all came in the third, a frame during which 12 consecutive Indian batsmen reached base.

Altamont improves to 3-5 on the season with the win.

At Stew-Stras

Stewardson-Strasburg plated six runners in the second inning en route to an 11-1 victory in non-conference play hosting Cumberland.

Cody Rincker was 4-for-4 in the contest with a double and a stolen base, and Tyler Wirth knocked in four with a single and a double of his own.

Kelvin Figgins was the winner for the Comets, scattering seven hits to allow just one run. He fanned only one hitter but didn't walk any. Stew-Stras stole five bases in the game and pounded out 12 hits. Meanwhile, four Cumberland errors led to five unearned Comet runs.

The Comets improve to 7-5 and will host Newton Thursday.

At Patoka

St. Elmo scored three in the top of the seventh, but couldn't come up with the one it really needed in a 7-6 loss at Patoka.

Jordan Donaldson drove in five of St. Elmo's six runs with a two-run single and a bases loaded triple in that seventh inning. Unfortunately for the Eagles, third base was as far as he got.

Colton Booher had three hits in the game with a single, double, triple and an RBI.

With the loss, St. Elmo falls to 6-6 and is scheduled to travel to Teutopolis today.

At Centralia

Spencer Patton tossed a no-hitter at Centralia, leading South Central to a 3-0 win Tuesday.

Patton struck out 12 Centralia batters in his seven innings work. He did walk five in the contest, but was still able to keep the shutout and no-hitter intact.

Patton also had a big day at the plate, singling and doubling to help his own cause.

South Central is now 11-2 this season and is set to host Noble today.

At Odin

Breese Central scored 13 times before Odin ever came up to bat, leading the visitors to a 20-1 blowout win.
