FCS' Fry fires shutout at Tigerettes
Apr 12, 2007 12:00 am
As usual, Carrie Fry's pitches were too hot for opposing hitters to handle.
On Tuesday, it was Watertown's turn to face Friendship Christian's stove and the Tigerettes were held to two hits in the Lady Commanders' 5-0 win.
The senior right-hander struck out nine, hit one and walked two as the Lady Commanders climbed to 14-5 for the season and 4-0 in District 8-A.
Watertown's Sarah Reeder fanned four as she tried to keep the Lady Commanders within striking distance. But Jessi Couch's two-run homer over the center-field fence in the first inning were all the runs Fry would need. Reeder was reached for 10 hits as the Tigerettes fell to 10-14, 2-3.
In addition to her homer, Couch drove in a third run with a sacrifice fly deep into the left-field corner in the fifth after Hailey Rutledge tripled down the right-field line. She also threw out a would-be base stealer from behind the plate. Rutledge singled with two out in the first and scored on Couch's home run.
Leadoff batter Camille Cross singled off the center-field fence and, after Kelcey Lee's single, scored on Kenzie Dye's sacrifice fly in the third. Cross doubled in her final two at-bats, one of which scored Sarah Huddleston, who hit a two-out single in the fourth.
Shelby McDonald rounded out Friendship's hit parade with a pair of singles.
Ashley Clark broke up Fry's no-hit bid with a two-out single to left field in the sixth. Pinch-hitter Katie Drown singled in the seventh.
Both teams return to home district action Thursday. Friendship hosts Gordonsville for a 4 p.m. double header while Watertown entertains Trousdale County at 4:30 p.m. at Three Forks Park.
LHS' Maynard pitches three-hitter to beat Oakland
Lebanon jumped to a three-run first-inning lead and Meghan Maynard kept visiting Oakland at bay the rest of the way in a 7-1 win Tuesday night at Baird Park.
Maynard allowed an unearned run in the seventh on three hits and no walks while striking out 10 as Lebanon improved to 14-8 for the season and 4-2 in District 7-AAA.
Missy Roberts and Mallory Mason had RBI singles and Lauren Carr a run-scoring double in the first inning. Jordan Freeman blasted a two-run homer over the center-field fence in the fourth.
Carr collected a second double in the sixth. Maynard doubled in the first and Lauren Ludwikowski singled in the sixth.
Lebanon will host Blackman at 7 p.m. Thursday at Baird Park. The junior varsity will play at 5.

GALLATIN — Wilson Central bludgeoned Gallatin 20-1 Tuesday as Jessica Faircloth fired a five-inning one-hitter.
Faircloth struck out eight and walked one as the Lady Wildcats climbed to 12-7 for the season and 5-1 in District 9-AAA.
She was backed by an 18-hit assault. Courtney Billington blasted a two-run homer in the second inning, a two-run double in the fourth and a single while Kristyn Clark clubbed a two-run double in the first and a two-run homer in the second. Caitlyn Bailey belted two doubles, one of which drove in two runs in the first.
Leevie Greenwood and Sara Williams doubled and singled. Savana Bell drove in a run as she singled three times and Kristin Madewell twice.
The Lady Wildcats were coming off a 4-2 weekend at the Bob Jones Tournament in Huntsville, Ala.
