By By BRIAN SANDLER

ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) - Making the first varsity start of his career on Thursday, Westmoreland junior Brandon Jones gave up a leadoff single to Rome Catholic then struck out 20 of the next 21 batters in a complete-game 8-0 win at DeLutis Field.

Zach Rowlands had the single, which was a clean hit, and the only out that was not a strikeout was recorded on a caught stealing after a batter was hit by a pitch.  Jones had zero walks.

On the offensive side, Sean Grogan was 2-for-4 with two runs and Dan Smith was 2-for-4 with a triple and a run.

Westmoreland is now 1-1 overall while Rome Catholic, which lost eight starters from last year's state championship runner-up team and returned just four varsity players this season, falls to 1-3.
