Placeholder Image
What Noah Fann lacks in size, he makes up for in skill when on the mound for State Farm.Fann pitched a complete-game shutout Tuesday night in boys 11-12 senior league play, helping State Farm move to 9-2 with a 6-0 win over Hall’s Backhoe.Fann doesn’t look like the prototypical pitcher on the rubber, standing at barely 5-foot-tall and weighing in at around 100 pounds.It doesn’t stop Fann from having success, especially when his curveball and changeup work as well as they did Tuesday.Fann kept the Hall’s Backhoe bats at bay all night, allowing just four hits over six innings while striking out five.Fann got plenty of run support to ensure the victory. Brooks Helton had two hits, including an RBI single in the first inning, while Crockett Walker continued his tear this season with two hits.Walker’s first hit was an RBI triple in the fourth that scored Helton. His second was a single in the sixth and he would later come in to score on a two-run single by Mason Vaughn.Austin Higgins added an inside-the-park home run in the fifth as State Farm moved into sole possession of first place with its ninth victory.Caleb Newby, who took the loss, T.R. Dyer, Alex Steiner and Will Rowland had one hit each for Hall’s Backhoe.
