LEOPOLD - Tony Backer and Bo Gibson combined to pitch a two-hit shutout as Perry Central beat North Harrison 1-0 in a baseball season opener Wednesday.
Backer pitched the first three innings, giving up no hits and three walks and striking out six.
He left after three innings because "we were focusing on pitch count," said Ty Guillaume, not wanting to overextend a pitcher's arm early in the season. Backer threw 27 pitches in the first inning.
Gibson pitched the final four innings. He gave up two hits and one walk and struck out four.
