Baseball: Mortimer Jordan 5, Walker 0

JASPER — Taylor Goodwin pitched a two-hit gem Thursday,  as Mortimer Jordan blanked Walker 5-0 in a Class 5A Area 12 baseball game.

Goodwin struck out seven Viking batters as he got his fifth win in as many decisions. He allowed six walks.

Center fielder Walker McCleney was 3-for-3 at the plate, driving in one run and scoring another. He also had a stolen base, and reached base on a hit-by-pitch.

Adam Stover and Justin Folse each hit run-scoring doubles, and also scored runs.

Bryant Atkins took the loss for Walker, allowing four earned runs on seven hits in 5-2/3 innings.

Jordan (19-8, 2-0 area) begins its annual Spring Break Tournament on Monday, starting with a game against Hayden at 11 a.m.
