Franklin County 6, Jac-Cen-Del 1; Eagle JV 26-25

The following is an unedited report from Franklin County softball coach Alex McCool.  Game was played Saturday.

Much like the temperatures throughout the game, the Franklin County Softball teams bats gradually warmed up throughout the game as the Wildcats were able to pull away from the Jac-Cen-Del late in the game and defeat the Eagles by a final score of 6-1. Temperatures hovered in the low 40s at the start of the game and as the temperature rose, so did the Wildcats offense. Franklin County (2-0) was able to put together strings of hits and key plays in the fifth, sixth, and seventh innings to claim the victory over Jac-Cen-Del (3-1).

Early on the game was a pitcher’s duel between Kamryn McCool and Jac-Cen-Del’s Morgen Carroll. Neither team was able to get much offense going in the first two innings. Jac-Cen-Del was retired in order both innings with McCool recording four strikeouts. Franklin County also struggled to get anything going in the first two innings. Not to be out done by McCool, Carroll scattered two hits and struck out six.

Franklin County’s first scoring opportunity came in the third inning. After the first two hitters of the inning struck out, Maggie Wendel her drilled a double to center field. The threat was neutralized however as Carroll induced a ground out of the bat of McCool.

Jac-Cen-Del started the scoring in the bottom of the third inning. After striking off the leadoff hitter, the eighth hitter, Dwenger, proved to be a tough out for McCool. Dwenger worked a brilliant eleven pitch at bat that ended in a walk. After striking out the next hitter, Carroll helped her own cause by drilling a double off the wall in deep left. McCool then ended the inning with another strikeout.

The Wildcats threatened again in the top of the fourth with Hannah Hornsby leading off the inning with a double to deep left. However, Hornsby was left sitting at second base as Carroll struck out the next three Wildcat hitters.

After giving up the initial run, McCool made sure that was going to be all the Eagles could muster. Over the final four innings, McCool allowed one single and struck out six Eagles. Now all the Wildcats had to do was string some hits together. The Wildcats offense would finally get on the board in the fifth inning.

Gabby Mitchum lead off the inning for the Wildcats with a single to centerfield. A pass ball allowed Mitchum to advance to second, and then Izyy Hoff laid down a sacrifice bunt. The bunt was fielded by the Eagles, but then the throw sailed down the right field line. It allowed Hoff to be safe at first and Mitchum came around to score. Camryn Brewer then laid down a sacrifice bunt that allowed Hoff to move to second. Maggie Wendel then showed bunt, but pulled it back as Izzy Hoff took off for third base. Hoff slid in underneath the tag and the Wildcats had the go-ahead run on third. Wendel struck out, bringing to the plate McCool. Returning the favor to Carroll, McCool helped her own cause by popping a 2B into short left field and scoring Hoff. Hornsby grounded out to third and that ended the Wildcats inning.
