CLAY CITY -- Clay City junior Jake Tiefel took over Thursday night for the Eels as they won against Union in six innings, 11-1.

Tiefel pitched all six innings, only allowing one hit with eight strikeouts. He also succeeded at the plate, going 4-for-4 with a RBI.

"Tiefel I think stole the show tonight," Clay City head coach Vance Edmondson said. "(The) guy sees four pitches at the plate, goes 4-for-4, pitches a one-hitter. He was on for us tonight. He was excellent."

Clay City also began the game well offensively, scoring two run off two hits to take a 2-0 lead.

In the fourth inning, the Eels scored a pair of runs off hits by Austin Fuller and Mason Persinger. Fuller finished the game 2-3 at the plate and scored three runs.

In the fifth inning, Clay City went on a five-hit, five-run scoring tear, starting with Colton Harbour.

Harbour hit a single to right field, then was advanced by another single by Fuller. Persinger then got on base with a walk. Tiefel batted in Harbour, then Kole Smith drove in Fuller. Zach Boggs walked sending Persinger home, and finally Tanner Persinger hit a double that brought home both Tiefel and Smith. The inning finally ended with the Eels ahead, 9-0.

In the top of the sixth, Union found a little offense, scoring one run off a Clay City error.

However, the Eels closed out the game as Fuller scored on a wild pitch and Smith scored on a balk.

Clay City seniors had an extra reason to celebrate Thursday night as Tyler Bridgewater, Fuller and Tanner Persinger were honored before the game.

Clay City advances to 5-5 overall (4-3 in conference play) and plays again Monday at Riverton Parke beginning at 4:30 p.m.
