Shockers veteran pitcher Kirk Messick threw a complete game shutout last night against the Montezuma Braves in a 5-0 victory. The RCBL 2021 Pitcher of the Year scattered six 6 hits with 3 walks 4 strikeouts.
When asked what was working - "I was able to locate my pitches pretty well and keep hitters off balanced. I have to give a shout-out to Matt House for stepping in and calling great ball game.”
Shockers coach Nolan Potts said “Kirk was dialed in from the very beginning of the game. When he keeps the ball down in the zone and is able to change speeds, he’s a tough guy to make consistently solid contact off of. He threw a ton of strikes and allowed our defense to make plays behind him. The plan definitely was not for him to go all nine innings, but the fact that we never had to get anyone loose in the bullpen goes to show how dominant he was against a good hitting Montezuma team.”
The Shockers improve to 3-3 with the win and are off until Monday when they travel to Broadway. The Braves fall to 3-4 and will host the Grottoes Cardinals on Saturday.
