LANCASTER - It wouldn't have mattered if Burgin had put 15 players in the field against Garrard County, the Golden Lions were determined to find every gap in the Bulldogs' defense.
The host Lions (9-5) collected 17 hits - including four from catcher Brittany Gilbert - and pushed across seven runs in the third inning to defeat the Bulldogs 13-1 here Friday.
Brittany Lane chipped in with three hits while Abby Parsons, Sara Carrier and Kia Howard added two hits each. Winning pitcher Tiffany Meadors and Parsons combined to throw a one-hitter, a second inning single by Amanda Cocanougher, although Burgin hit the ball hard throughout the game only to hit it right at Garrard's defense.
"Garrard's a good team and we knew that coming in," Burgin coach Matt Grimes said. "They managed to hit all the gaps tonight and we didn't have an answer. Sometimes it looked like we had five players on the field and they had 20.
