Area roundup: Allen East routs Hardin Northern in baseball

Apr. 10—HARROD — Allen East's baseball season didn't start as well as the Mustangs might have expected, but maybe a 13-3 run-rule win over Hardin Northern on Wednesday could become a turning point.

"Hopefully, we'll keep this momentum going," Allen East coach Tyler Stevens said.

"We got off to a rough start. We were 2-4 coming into this game. We were really struggling at the plate so we were looking for better at bats, seeing the ball a little better than we've been seeing it, working the count, being a little more disciplined than we've been.

"The losses have been tough. We thought we could have competed a little better than we did in those games but we're looking to the future. We don't look to the past, we just try to move to the future," he said.

The Mustangs had 11 hits, led by Caden Hedrick, who went 3 for 3. Carson Clum was 2 for 3 and Levi Clum was 2 for 4. Trey Hensley was the winning pitcher in his first start of the season.
