Errors sink Lady Bulldogs

Friday, April 18, 2008

It was a forgettable evening for the Cornersville Lady Bulldogs (10-6) Tuesday. They were plagued by a slew of defensive miscues en route to an 8-1 home loss to the Shelbyville Eaglettes.

The Lady Bulldogs had beaten Shelbyville, 2-1, in their previous meeting on March 17, but self-destructed Tuesday by committing five errors in the field, which contributed to five of the Eaglettes' eight runs.

CHS starting pitcher Summer Cole suffered the loss, allowing six runs on five hits and two walks in four innings of work to go along with five strikeouts. Senior hurler Chrissy Worth then relieved Cole at the start of the fifth and gave up two runs on three hits and three walks over the final two frames, while recording three strikeouts.

Cornersville had several chances to put more runs on the board, but stranded five runners in scoring position and finished with a modest five hits overall. Senior shortstop Tori Wolaver went 2-for-3 with a homerun to lead the Lady Bulldogs at the plate, while Katie Pigg added a double. Cole and Worth each had a single for CHS.
