Davis throws complete game shutout
LEBANON -- A two-out RBI double off the bat of Will Adams in the fifth inning was the only run Jake Davis needed as Lebanon blanked Putnam County 1-0 in the finals of the 15U Babe Ruth State Tournament Sunday at Eskew Field.
Davis limited Putnam County to just five hits and struck out five as the Lions cruised through the five-team double-elimination tournament without a loss.
With the win, the Lebanon squad will advance to the Southeast Regional Tournament which opens July 29 in Richmond, Va.
