FERDINAND—Jordan Heck pitched a shutout and hit a double as Tell City beat Forest Park 6-0 in the second game of a Diamond League baseball doubleheader Tuesday.

“Heck was great on the mound,” said Tell City Coach Mark Wahl.

The Marksmen backed him with great defense.

“We had two double plays and threw out a runner at the plate on a double steal,” noted Wahl.

Forest Park won the first game 3-1.

Jeff Braun pitched that game for Tell City and “pitched very well,” said Wahl. “But we left the bases loaded twice and left runners on second and third once. Each time we had those situations with less than two outs but could not make anything happen.”

Tell City’s doubleheader with Boonville, scheduled tonight, has been canceled because Boonville does not have enough players. So Tell City’s season is over.
