Rutledge fires FCS past Watertown
Apr 24, 2007 12:00 am
WATERTOWN — An ailing shoulder limited Jessi Couch to flex-player duty Wednesday.
But the Friendship Christian catcher flexed her bat for a two-run homer in the first inning to launch the Lady Commanders to a 12-0 trouncing of Watertown at Three Forks Park.
The home run was enough cushion for Hailey Rutledge, who fired a four-hitter with a walk and 16 strikeouts in seven innings to lift the Lady Commanders to 21-6 for the season and 6-0 in District 8-A.
Rutledge and Camille Cross each drove in two runs on three hits while Kenzie Dye and Shelby McDonald knocked in a run apiece on two hits. Lindsey Farmer drilled an RBI double. Couch collected a single to round out Friendship's 15-hit parade against Sarah Reeder and Katie Drown.
Olivia Hall had half of Watertown's hits while Brittany Trusty and Ashley Clark singled as the Tigerettes fell to 9-13, 4-4.
Watertown will host Mt. Juliet Christian at 4:30 p.m. today at Three Forks Park. Friendship will travel to Hopkinsville, Ky., for the Christian County Tournament, an event Wilson Central is also participating in. The Lady Commanders will play at 8 p.m. Friday.
Greenwood pitches Central past Beech, scores in 1-0 win
GLADEVILLE — Wilson Central stayed in the thick of the District 9-AAA race Wednesday night with a 1-0 win over Beech.
Leevie Greenwood pitched a four-hit shutout and scored the game's only run as the Lady Wildcats climbed to 15-8 for the season and 7-2 in District 9-AAA. The sophomore allowed four hits and four walks while striking out eight.
Beech fell to 26-8, 4-4.
"It was a big win, especially with us having to face Beech again on Monday," said Central coach Ashley Putman-Serbin, whose Lady Wildcats will face Muhlenburg County [Ky.] at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the Christian County Tournament at Hopkinsville, Ky. They will also play at 8 p.m. Friendship Christian is also in the tourney.
Greenwood singled in the Central third and scored on Courtney Billington's triple to right field.
