Larkin pitcher Max Anderson etched his name in the IHSA record books in an 8-0 victory over Elgin at Trout Park Wednesday. The left-hander used a well-located fastball and an array of breaking pitches to strike out 19 in a 2-hit victory that clinched the crosstown series for the Royals. The senior struck out the first 12 batters of the game, the first two of which occurred Monday before lightning caused a first-inning suspension until Wednesday.
