GREENSBORO — Max Green hurled five innings of three-hit baseball to spark Cornerstone Academy to a 4-1 victory in 1A Central Tar Heel Conference action last Tuesday afternoon in Greensboro.

The Cardinals improved to 3-0 in league play with the win and to 3-0 overall while the Knights dropped to 0-1 in the CTH and to 1-1 overall.

Green allowed just one run in the top of the sixth after Connor Murphy doubled for Chatham Charter and later scored on an RBI-single from Trevor Golden. The Knights would score no more as Green closed with no walks and seven strikeouts, and freshman Tucker Smith notched the save by going the final two innings and allowing one hit, no runs and fanning two.

Noah Carter was the hard luck loser as the senior went four innings and yielded four hits, two runs, no walks and whiffed six. Golden hurled the final two innings and allowed three hits, two runs, no walks and struck out four.

Carter also had a double in a 1-for-3 effort at the plate while Murphy closed 2-for-3, and Golden 1-for-3.

Justin Thomas was 2-for-3 to lead the Cardinals at the plate. The freshman had a pair of RBI-doubles while Green was also 2-for-3 with two runs, an RBI and two stolen bases, Garet Jones 1-for-1 and was hit by a pitch while stealing a base, Smith 1-for-3, and Carter Blum 1-for-3 with two stolen bases.
