P27 Academy of Lexington shuts out MLB China

The home of the Lexington County Blowfish was the site Sunday for the first of 3 games involving MLB China and P27 Academy. 
MLB China is a team of 16-18 year olds from Nanjing, China while P27 Academy is a Lexington baseball academy for high school players and those seeking to improve themselves for college. 
The 2 teams opened play against each other at Lexington County Baseball Stadium. 
Game 1 went in favor of the host team out of Lexington. P27 Academy came away with a 3-0 shutout win as the pitching staff allowed just 2 hits.
Among the pitchers used was Leesville native Ryan Ouzts. The Gilbert High School senior struck out 4 batters and allowed no hits over the final 2 innings. 
Ouzts also added insurance in the top 9th with a 2-run double. Connor Daniels gave P27 Academy a 1-0 lead in the bottom 4th with a bloop single. 
MLB China and P27 Academy will play a doubleheader Monday in Lexington. The games will take place at 2:30 pm and 5 pm.
