    Keinsley struck out six and walked one.

    "We just handed this one away," said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson. "Our throwing mechanics have to get better.

    "We're young and we got rattled, and for whatever reason we couldn't turn off the scoring."

    Gibson noted the Commodores have improved on offense, though.
