WICHITA — The No. 19 Barton Cougars swept past Johnson County 8-0 with a shutout victory and 12 hits Friday in the Region 6 Tournament at Wichita’s Lawrence-Dumont Stadium.
Cougar pitcher Josh Hendrickson (10-2) struck out eight batters and yielded five hits. He’s ranked second all-time with 10 wins and 113 strikeouts in a season.
Kaden Fowler belted two doubles out of his three hits to set a new school record with 28 two-baggers on the year, eclipsing the record set by Barton Hall of Famer Jeff Christy in the 2004 season.
The Cougars (43-12) advance to Saturday’s winner’s bracket 4 p.m. semifinal against Seward County (30-28). Johnson County (36-22) drops to Saturday’s elimination game against Colby.
