Alton’s Adam Stilts, shown pitching earlier this season, threw a three-hit shutout to lead the Redbirds to a Southwestern Conference victory over the Kahoks on Tuesday in Collinsville.
Adam Stilts would have no part of allowing the Alton Redbirds’ four-game losing streak to grow to five.
The senior right-hander fired a three-hit shutout to lead the Redbirds’ to a 7-0 victory over the Collinsville Kahoks in a Southwestern Conference baseball game at Fletcher Field in Collinsville. Alton is 11-13 and 5-4 in the SWC. Collinsville is 12-12 and 3-7 in the league.
Stilts was in command throughout, striking out a career-high 10 while walking no one in seven dominant innings. After a scoreless first, the Redbirds scored in each of the next five innings while finishing with 11 hits.
Robby Taul lashed out a pair of doubles and drove in two runs for Alton, which also got two hits apiece from Caden Akal and Owen Stendeback, and two RBIs from Stilts. Collinsville starter Ryker Cain took the loss, allowing five runs (two earned) on five hits in five innings.
