KODAK - It’s been a while since Tanner Franklin threw as many strikeouts as he did last Thursday.

According to Franklin, he hasn’t fanned 10 opposing batters since his Little League days. Now, he’s done it at the high school level. With his help, the Jefferson County Pirates made short work of the Valley Hawks, 10-0, to stay in the East Tennessee High School League playoff picture.
