DURHAM — Jordan-Matthews’ Luke Hinshaw might need to add some Ks to his name after his performance April 3 against Riverside.

Thirteen, to be exact.

Hinshaw struck out 13 batters on the way to a 4-1 triumph for the Jets over 4A Riverside in Durham, scattering five hits and allowing just one run.

For four innings, Hinshaw and Riverside starter A.J. Bass locked up in a pitcher’s duel that kept the contest scoreless.

In the top of the 5th, with two outs, the Jets finally broke through with a pair of runs. All the damage came with two outs as Christopher Morgan delivered a clutch double to center and scored moments later on a Thomas Smith single to left. Smith would then score on an error by the Pirates to send the Jets in front 2-0.

Riverside rallied with a run in the home half of the sixth to close the deficit to a single run behind a leadoff infield single from Bass who proceeded to steal second before scoring on a double to center by Ray Palma.

After Palma was advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Caleb Bowers, Hinshaw would strand the tying run after coaxing a pop out by Joseph Laird to Samuel Murchison at short, and then striking Davis Horton out on three pitches.

The Hinshaw efforts would prove to be the dagger in the Pirates as the Jets came in and plated a pair of runs in the visiting half of the seventh to extend its advantage to 4-1. Huston Causey, Hinshaw and Morgan all singled to leadoff the frame to load the bases before a Riverside error allowed Causey to score before Murchison walked to drive in Hinshaw.

Hinshaw allowed just a walk in the bottom of the seventh in closing out the victory.

Morgan had a huge game offensively for Jordan-Matthews with a 3-for-4 effort that included a run and a double while Causey was 1-for-2 with a run and a sacrifice, Hinshaw 1-for-3 with a run, Chris Rios 1-for-3, and Smith 1-for-4 with a run and an RBI.

Riverside was paced by Bass going 1-for-2 with a walk and a run while Aiden Rice was 1-for-2 with a walk.

Bass took the loss on the mound after working five innings with four hits, two runs (one earned), and a walk while striking out five.

In relief for the Pirates, Justin Drake worked the sixth but failed to get out of the seventh after going an inning and allowing three hits and two runs while Chris Allen came in to get the final three outs and walked one while fanning one.
