Soldotna sophomore Joey Becher threw strikes — well, for the most part — and let his defense take care of the rest.
Becher pitched the Stars to a 4-1 win over Palmer on Friday in Northern Lights Conference play at the Soldotna Little League fields.
The Stars improved to 2-7 overall and in the league with the victory, while Palmer dropped to 2-8 and 1-8.
Becher gave up just two hits and an unearned run while striking out eight and walking four.
It was a big improvement over his other start of the season.
