Lady Bulldogs crush Cascade
After whipping Cascade, 8-0, seven days earlier, the Cornersville Lady Bulldogs (14-6) completed the season sweep of their former District rival Thursday, trekking to Wartrace and demolishing the Lady Champions 20-0 in three innings.
The Lady Bulldogs shelled Cascade starting pitcher Tiffany Gibbs for 14 hits to go along with nine walks and three Lady Champion errors. "We attacked the ball today and hit really well. After the first inning the game was basically over with," said Cornersville head coach Spencer Mitchell.
Designated hitter Chrissy Worth and third baseman Lindsey Dalton spearheaded the Lady Bulldogs' offensive bombardment. Worth went 4-for-4 with a double, three RBIs, and two runs scored, while Dalton went 3-for-3 with a double, a homerun, four RBIs, and three runs scored.
Leftfielder Katie Pigg, first baseman Lori Beth Adams, and centerfielder Sarah King each registered a pair of hits and three RBIs and combined to score seven runs for Cornersville. Leadoff hitter Tori Wolaver also had a double, a walk and three runs scored for the Lady Bulldogs.
Starting pitcher Summer Cole continued Cornersville's dominance in the circle against Cascade, as she tossed an abbreviated perfect game and struck out all nine Lady Champion batters she faced.
With Cole's performance Thursday, the Lady Bulldog pitching staff has not allowed a Cascade batter to reach base in the 10 innings they have played against the Lady Champions this season.
Cornersville put the hammer down early by pushing across six runs in the top of the first inning to grab a 6-0 lead. After Wolaver was hit by a pitch, Cole reached base on an error and Pigg singled to load the bases with no outs.
Following an RBI fielder's choice by Amanda Griggs, Adams hit into a fielder's choice for the second out, but Sarah King drove in courtesy runner Jessica King and Adams with a two-run dou . . .pick up a copy of today's edition of the Marshall County Tribune, Wednesday, April 30, 2008 for entire article and photos.
