DEMOPOLIS &8212; The Parr&8217;s Chevron team won out over Linden Stockyard yesterday evening in a Babe Ruth League match up at the Demopolis SportsPlex.

Behind big bats and the arm of Gunter Carter Parr&8217;s held their opponents scoreless through five innings and moved to 2-3 on the season with the 19-0 win. Parr’s coach Rex Kent said the group did well in the game with their at bats.

Kent said the arm of Gunter Carter allowed his defense to take it easy for the game, so it was hard to gauge the group&8217;s play. Cater allowed only three hits during the game and recorded nine strikeouts during the five innings of play.
