Franklin County 3, Rising Sun 0; JV Wildcats 13-5

The following is an unedited report from Franklin County Softball coach Alex McCool:

Great pitching and timely hitting were the keys to the Franklin County Softball team picking up their first win of the season. After many cancellations due to weather and few practices outside, Franklin County (1-0) was able to pick up a game at Rising Sun (1-1) on Thursday evening. Kendall McCool got her first victory of the season for the Wildcats pitching seven strong innings for the Wildcats in what turned out to be a pitchers’ clinic most of the evening.

The Wildcats threatened in the top of the first inning, but could bring home a run. Camryn Brewer reached on an error by the Shiners, but was then thrown out trying to steal second. Kamryn McCool then smacked a single into center field with two outs, but the Shiner pitcher Pitts induced a ground out to end the inning.

In the bottom half of the first inning McCool made quick work of the Shiner hitters, striking out the first two hitters before allowing a Bostic to reach base on an error. The next hitter the flew out to Brewer at short stop to end the inning.

The Wildcats got the scoring started in the top of the second inning. After retiring the lead off hitter, Kloe Bolos came to the plate and drew a one out walk. The next Wildcat hitter struck out, and that left it up to Gabby Mitchum. Gabby then worked a beautiful six pitch at bat which ended with her driving a an rbi double into deep left field. Pitts then finished off the inning with a strikeout.

The Wildcats scored again in the top of the third inning, once again with a clutch two out hit. With one out, Maggie Wendel smacked a single into center field to give the Wildcats a runner. After a fly out to deep right field for the second out, back to back two out singles by Hannah Hornsby and Sidney Wilbur scored Wendel and the Wildcats had a 2-0 lead.

The Shiners threatened in the bottom of the fourth when Bostic lead off the inning with a double to deep left field. Montgomery then smoked a line drive the next pitch, but it was right at second baseman Maggie Wendel for the first out of the inning. McCool then ended the threat with back-to-back strikeouts to end the fourth.

The Wildcats scored their final run of the game in the sixth inning. Gabby Mitchum was able to drive her second double of the game to the outfield with one out. Then after Pitts struck out the next Wildcat hitter, again the Wildcats had a timely hit with two outs. This time it was freshman Camryn Brewer with a two-out double to give the Wildcats a 3-0 lead.

The Shiners threatened one more time in the bottom of the sixth, but once again McCool was able to pitch out of a jam. After retiring the first hitter, Bostic reached base for the third time on a double to left field. After seeing Montgomery smash the ball the first two times at the plate, Coach McCool then intentionally walked her to put runners at first and second. Kendall the finished the threat with back to back strike outs to end the inning.

Neither team put much together in the seventh inning and the Wildacts won the game by a final score 3-0. Kendall McCool finished the game by scattering five hits over seven innings and striking out fourteen. Pitts finished with seven strikeouts for the Shiners.

Franklin County’s offense finished the game with eleven hits. Hannah Hornsby, Sidney Wilbur, Kloe Bolos, and Gabby Mitchum all had two hits to lead the way for the Wildcats.

Franklin County’s Junior Varsity team also won their first game of the season against Rising Sun by a final score of 13-5 in a game shortened to three innings due to frigid temperatures. The Wildcats offense was on full display this evening putting together six hits, eight walks, and two hit batters.

Sarah Bare picked up the win in the circle for the Wildcats going two innings, giving up two hits and striking out four Shiner hitters. Karlie Hahn pitched in relief for the Wildcats pitching the third inning. Hahn gave up one run, one hit, and struck out two hitters.
