Harlan became the first team in the 13th Region to reach the 10-win mark with a doubleheader sweep of visiting Twin Springs, Va., on Thursday, winning 10-1 in the opening game and 12-4 in five innings in the nightcap.

Junior righthander Austin Wilson ran his record to 3-0 as he pitched a complete game in the opener, scattering six hits.

Noah Busroe led the Harlan offense with a double and two singles. Pedro Roman contributed two singles. Caleb Hogue, Andrew Saylor, Kilian Ledford, Brendan Miller and Antonio Roman added one single each.

Harlan grabbed a 3-0 lead in the second inning as Antonio Roman singled home one run and Saylor singled home two more. Pedro Roman was hit by a pitch to open the inning, and Miller followed with a single.

Busroe was safe on an error in the fourth inning and eventually scored on another error on a double steal with Nick Jarvis.

The Dragons batted around in the sixth inning, blowing the game open with six runs. Busroe started the inning with a bunt single and ended the inning with a two-run double. Those were the only two hits for Harlan that inning as Twin Springs made three errors and pitcher Cory Stansberry walked two and hit one.

Busroe had another big game in the nightcap, driving in three runs with a triple and two singles. Wilson drove in two runs with two singles. Saylor, Hogue, Ledford, Jarvis, Sammy Moore and Jacob McCurry added one single each.
