CENTRAL POINT 5-11, NORTH JACKSON 4-5- At Eagle Point on Wednesday, Chris Pettegrew drilled a pair of two-run homers in the nightcap and had a key two-run double in the opener as Central Point swept a doubleheader.

Pettegrew finished Game 2 with five RBIs, with his pair of homers coming in the first and second innings to help Central Point build a 6-0 lead of North Jackson and starter Chris Boyd.

Derek Petersen and Jared Maddocks each added two hits and drove in a run in Game 2.

North Jackson (5-8) was led by Tyson Nelson, Brandon Willer and Mark Farrell, who each had two hits in Game 2.

Royals starter Carl Christian had a no-hitter through five innings of Game — before having that disappear, along with the win, after a five-run sixth inning surge by Central Point.

North Jackson had taken a 4-0 lead in the fifth after loading the bases and scoring off two passed balls and two errors.
