Special To The Standard

Nelson County, led by a two-hit shutout performance by pitcher Collin Runner, advances to the 19th District semifinals after topping Thomas Nelson 6-0.

Runner suffered from some control issues through the game, walking five batters, but his 12 strikeouts allowed him to get out of any jams he worked himself into.
