In Dixie Youth action last week Dustin Till threw five innings of shutout ball striking out 13 batters and leading the Athletics to a 10-0 blanking of the Astros.
The A's struck quickly in the first when Cooper Lewis singled and scored after Caleb Glass drew a walk and Till singled. Keggian Lewis also singled and scored on a fielder choice later in the inning. The four runs were more than Till needed as he proceeded to shut down the Astros with Kendall Gibson, who went 1-2, the only Astros player to reach the base pads.
The other big inning for the A's was the fifth where after two walks and a fielder's choice, Glass doubled, Till and Lewis singled to score four more runs for the Athletics. They added two more in the sixth to secure the win.

Daniel Nolan and Brantley McKeown scored the Orioles three runs after reaching base.
