 INDEPENDENCE –– Tyler Rutherford tossed a complete-game three-hitter as Grayson County took a 3-1 win over Radford in a nondistrict game Tuesday.

Rutherford didn’t allow an earned run while striking out 13 Bobcats.

Grayson County (2-1) took the lead for good in the bottom of the second when Dustin Leonard led off with a single, stole second and scored on a two-out error. Spencer Roberts added an RBI single in the fifth.

Radford cut the lead to 2-1 in the top of the sixth, but Grayson County got the run back in its half of the inning. Taylor Hyatt and Max Rodgers walked, and Rodgers got caught in a rundown between second and third, allowing Matthew Cornett, running for Hyatt, to score.
