Usually, non-conference games in the middle of league play is a time for baseball coaches to give their second or third starters and/or relievers some valuable time on the mound.This, however, was hardly your garden variety out of conference game.With their teams having a relatively light workload for the week, former Wofford baseball teammates Robbie Cash and Billy Keels agreed to trot their respective aces out Monday. In the end, it was Keel’s sophomore left-hander, Evan Sisk, who outdueled Cash’s senior righty, Grayson King, as visiting Lewisville left North Central with a 7-0 victory behind Sisk’s one-hit, complete game gem.King worked five full innings and when he was lifted after having thrown 73 pitches, he had allowed two Lion runs, both of which came in the top of the fifth. The Francis Marion University signee allowed just two hits while fanning four in a tune-up for Friday’s scheduled start against Region 3-AA foe Fairfield Central in Winnsboro.“Billy and I agreed that we would both start our aces in this game,” said Cash after his Knights slipped to 6-3-1 on the season.
