Princeton Stuns No. 1 Oak Hill in AAA, Region 3, Section 2 opener | Sports

OAK HILL — Princeton Senior High School’s baseball team got four solid innings from starting pitcher Dustin Brewster — solid enough for the No. 4 Tigers to upend top-seeded Oak Hill 6-3 in Tuesday’s opening round of the Class AAA, Region 3, Section 2 tournament at Oak Hill.

The victory marks the Tigers first postseason victory under baseball coach Austin Southcott.

“My guys have battled through a lot of adversity this year. We’ve lost close to six games by one run. They really deserved this win tonight,” said Southcott, whose squad scored three runs in the second inning and three runs in the third.

Brewster struck out six and walked two, allowing three earned runs off three hits. Lucas Monaghan took over in the fourth, striking out one and walking four over three shutout innings.

Monaghan helped the Tigers out at the plate with a single and two RBIs. Brock Halsey and Ethan Nelson also drove in runs for Princeton. Grant Cochran doubled.
