East Jessamine 11, Burgin 8 - At Nicholasville, Burgin cranked out 17 hits but gave up too many big innings in a loss to East Jessamine.


East Jessamine, which scored three runs in three different innings, tied the game at 8-all with a two-run fifth inning and took the lead with a three-run sixth.

Burgin erased an early 6-3 deficit with two runs in the fourth inning and three more in the fifth.

"We played well offensively," Burgin coach Matt Grimes said. "People stepped up with the bat that we need to rely on.

"And we played extremely well defensively. We communicated well, and that communication aided us in cutting down our errors."

The Lady Bulldogs still committed four errors, while East Jessamine had five.

At the plate, Meredith Lear, Bev Harris, Amanda Carey and Taylor Bottoms had three hits each for Burgin, and a double by Lear was the team's only extra-base hit. Amanda Cocanougher and Michelle Myers each singled twice.
