The SCHS baseball team jumped out quickly, and finished Grant County (10-16) off early in a 15-5 six inning win in the 8th Region opener Monday.
Fighting off rain, the Rockets (18-12) got ahead 2-0 in the top of the first when Jared Clarkson ripped a two-run homer that also scored Nick Hamblen.
That was just the start of the day for Clarkson. He also had a two-run single and an RBI double. The double pushed the Rockets’ last run across.
Ben Glassner then relieved starter Jordan Bailey and pitched a perfect three-strikeout sixth to end the game.
