Franklin County over Connersville 4-1 and 15-6

The following are unedited varsity softball doubleheader reports from Franklin County coach Alex McCool and Connersville coach David Ellis

(Game 1 Franklin County)  The Franklin County Wildcats kept their winning streak rolling against Connersville on Wednesday evening defeating the Spartans 4-1. Pitching was the name of the game in this one and Jerri Ellis and Kendall McCool battled back and forth inning to inning. Franklin County had just enough timely hits and selfless softball to get the victory. With the victory, Franklin County’s record to 12-3 on the year and 6-2 in EIAC play. The Spartans fell to 8-7 on the year and 5-3 in EIAC play.

In the second inning, the Wildcats got on the board first. Camryn Brewer led of the inning with a single to left and then advanced to second on a Spartan throwing error. Then a beautiful sacrifice bunt by Kloe Bolos advanced Brewer to third. Kendall McCool followed that up with another bunt in an attempt for a suicide squeeze. The Spartans attempted to get the tag out at home on Brewer, but she slid in just underneath the tag to take the lead 1-0.

Franklin County added two more runs in the fourth inning with a double by Hannah Hornsby and a single by Kloe Bolos.

The Wildcats scored their final run in the fifth when Gabby Mitchum led off the inning with a single to right field. Next, Maggie Wendel laid down a sacrifice bunt that allowed Mitchum to get to second base; however, no Spartan could get back to third in time and Mitchum kept right on going to third. She would score on the next at bat by a RBI ground out by Kamryn McCool.

The Spartans lone run came in the seventh inning on a home run by Fields to center field.

Kendall McCool pitched an excellent game for the Wildcats inside the circle. She surrendered one run on two hits over seven innings, striking out five and walking one.

Ellis took the loss for Connersville. She surrendered four runs on five hits over six innings, striking out three and walking one.

The Wildcats had five hits in the game. Camryn Brewer led the way for Franklin County with two hits in three at bats.
