    Thomas Pettus scored the only run Washington County’s 12-year-old team would need in the first inning Monday, but in the fifth he knocked in two insurance runs that led to a 3-0 shutout of Russell County in the District 5 Tournament opener.

    Washington County got great mound work out of Wade Moore. Moore relinquished three hits and walked a like number. He also struck out 10. Adam Smith came on in relief over the last inning and two-thirds.

    It's been another fun and frantic week of T-ball play at Idle Hour Park. The kids seem to be having a lot of fun at the plate and in the field, and when the game gets a little boring for the young ones, they always seem to find an interesting and sometimes entertaining way to pass the time.
