SIKESTON -- Results of Friday's Sikeston Area Youth Baseball action were as follows.

Tyler Anderson picked up the win and led Morlan at the plate with a 2-for-2 day, including a home run.

Ross Bohannon and Tanner Bryant combined for the shutout and Bohannon also paced KSIM with two hits in three trips to the plate.

Alec Burden stroked a double for Lewis.

Lions' starter Mikey Russel and reliever Nathan Rodgers outdueled Wild Eyes' Colton Young, who went the distance with 12 strikeouts, in a well-pitched game on both sides.

Rodgers and Jason Isaacs went 1-for-3 for the winners and Michael Kuykendall went 1-for-2 for Wild Eyes.


Joshua Williams paced Noranda with a perfect 3-for-3, while teammates Scott Droddy, the winning pitcher, and Matthew Rushing added two hits in four plate appearances. Gratten Allen homered for Noranda.
