Softball: Danville blanks Garrard

Burgin beats H-burg

May 11, 2004

Chelsea Wallace drove in two runs and held Garrard County to two hits to lead Danville to a 4-0 win over Garrard County in a pitchers duel Monday at Troy Trumbo Field.

Wallace walked only one batter and struck out seven, while Garrard's Tiffany Meadors allowed four hits and three walks and also fanned seven.

Wallace pitched out of trouble in the second and third innings, when the Lady Lions left four runners on base. They stranded only one more in the balance of the game.

Danville sealed its win with a three-run fifth inning highlighted by Jerrica Potts' double and two Garrard errors.

Potts had two hits and scored twice, and Kelly Embree added a single. Potts and Monica Vonderbrink each had one RBI.


Burgin 16, Harrodsburg 8 - At Harrodsburg, Burgin (8-10) stockpiled enough runs in the early innings to survive two big innings by Harrodsburg late in the game.

The Lady Bulldogs scored five runs in the top of the first and led 12-0 before Harrodsburg scored four runs in both the fifth and sixth innings. They had 13 hits in all.

"We continue to improve in some facet in each game. However, errors tend to be a problem for us," Burgin coach Matt Grimes said. "We seem to have one or two innings we seem a little lax on.

"I'm proud of the way we played; we seem to play better defensively each game."

Winning pitcher Taylor Bottoms allowed only two hits.

Lincoln County 8, Somerset 3 - Lincoln (7-14) scored in each of the first five innings to pull away from Somerset.

Jessica Stringer, Becky Schuler, Shakela Miller and Kendra Garris had two hits each for the Lady Patriots, while Jenny Ralston and Sarah Fitzpatrick had one each.

"We played more disciplined at the plate today," Lincoln coach Pam Young said. "We were more selective in what we were hitting, which is what we've been wanting to do, and we were able to get some key hits as a result of it.

"And we made the key defensive plays when we needed to, something that we haven't done wiht any consistency throughout the year."

Winning pitcher Jana Crabtree allowed three hits and six walks and struck out six batters.
