Gavin Waldbillig had three hits and pitched a scoreless inning of relief in Tuesday's win

Polk County Middle saved its best for last.

The Wolverines, in their final home appearance of the season, put together a complete effort in all phases, dominating Canton Middle in a 7-1 victory at Polk County Recreation Complex.

Polk Middle starter Davis Holbert and relievers Matthew Foy and Gavin Waldbillig teamed on a two-hitter, holding the Bears (0-10) hitless until the sixth inning. The trio combined for 10 strikeouts.

“Our pitching staff really stepped up and took care of business,” said Polk Middle head coach Alston Rikard. “We hit the ball, played solid defense and had an all-around clean game. You can’t ask for more than that.”

Polk (5-8) grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first inning as Nate Fagan, Waldbillig and Simms Harris each singled. Callum Eadus was hit by a pitch to open the second and Fagan reached on an error before Matthew Jarrett and Waldbillig singled and Harris cracked a double to boost the Polk lead to 4-0.

Holbert and Eadus each singled in the fifth inning with two outs, and two Canton errors and a Jarrett single helped lead to three more Wolverine runs.

Waldbillig finished 3-for-4 at the plate, with Harris and Jarrett each 2-for-4. Hudson Hyde, Fagan, Eadus and Holbert each added a base hit.

Polk Middle is set to close its regular season on Monday, traveling to Flat Rock Middle for a 4:30 p.m. game.
