The DeKalb County High School Tiger baseball team shut out Smith County, 8-0, Monday evening in Baxter in the opening round of the double-elimination portion of the District 7-AA Tournament.
Trey Finley pitched seven innings of three-hit ball for the win on the mound. The senior struck out nine, walked three and hit three batters, as the Tigers stranded five Smith County runners in scoring position.
DeKalb County struck with three runs in the bottom of the first inning. Bray Page and Zack Rowland had back-to-back RBI base hits, and Rowland scored with two outs in the inning after John Malone reached on a fielding error with bases loaded.
