GOOD HOPE, Ala. – The Aggies traveled to Good Hope Thursday night for a pair of area matchups against the Raiders and a big-time performance on the mound from Jarrett Miller lifted Fairview to a 2-0 win in game one. Miller went all seven innings on the hill and allowed just two hits in the shutout while also racking up 15 strikeouts.

After four scoreless innings, Fairview finally got on the board in the top of the fifth when Dayne Black singled up the middle and drove in Caleb White and Malcolm Parker to make it 2-0. That was all the offense either side could muster, and the Aggies pulled away to win it with Miller on the mound.

Along with Black (two RBIs), Parker, White, Will Bailey, Parker Martin and Dalton Payne recorded hits for Fairview as well. Caleb Rusk and Preston Bagwell collected the only two hits of the game for Good Hope.
