Any win is considered a good one if you’re Riverside Military Academy baseball coach Mike Hutch, who currently fields a predominantly young, but gritty pack of underclassmen. Friday’s non-region game against Chestatee proved to Hutch just how tough his kids really are, gutting out a 2-0 win at Katterjohn Field in Gainesville. Riverside Military junior starting pitcher Alex Kerns tossed a complete-game, one-hit shutout with seven strikeouts, while freshman shortstop Jacob Ladd drove in the only runs of the game on a one-out, two-run double in the bottom of the fifth inning to snap a two-game skid for the Eagles (2-3) in the second week of the regular season.
