Tyner right-hander Chae Butler fired a two-hit shutout on Thursday as the Rams (10-5) posted their fifth win in seven games with a 9-0 win over Signal Mountain (10-5) in the Hurricane Classic.
Butler, the Rams’ mound ace, struck out eight.
Sadik Spence and Jalen Ross each had three hits and one RBI to pace the Rams’ 12-hit attack against the Eagles. C.J. Ryals tripled in the sixth inning.
Levi Glasscock and Lee Nagle each pitched three innings and gave up six hits and combined to yield five earned runs.
