CANNELTON—Control problems kept Ethan Melton from getting the win in his first varsity baseball game. But he did get the winning hit as Cannelton edged Grace Baptist 4-3 in a baseball season opener Tuesday.
Melton, a freshman, started on the mound and held the Defenders to one hit in the first two innings.
But in the third inning a walk, an error by the left fielder, a single up the middle, an infield hit, and two more walks produced three runs, putting the Defenders up 3-1.
