LEOPOLD—Stephen Hayes pitched a three-hitter as Perry Central beat Cannelton 8-1 in baseball Thursday.
Perry Central improved to 14-8, tying the school record for most wins set in 2006 and 2007.
Ethan Herzog, the second batter of the game, hit a home run for Cannelton. It hit the top of the left-field fence and then bounced on the other side of the fence.
Hayes shut the Bulldogs out the rest of the way, though, as he raised his record to 3-0.
He walked none, struck out nine, and retired the last 14 batters he faced.
