Rutledge, Lady Commander hitters overwhelm White County
Apr 12, 2007 12:00 am
After spotting visiting White County a run in the top of the first inning Monday, Friendship Christian pitcher Hailey Rutledge completely shut the Warriorettes down while her Lady Commanders clubbed 13 hits in an 8-1 win.
Both White County hits and two walks came in the first inning. The Warriorettes got only one walk and a Friendship error the rest of the way while Rutledge racked up 14 strikeouts as the Lady Commanders climbed to 13-5 for the season.
The first three Lady Commanders hit their way on base in a three-run bottom of the first inning.
"We hit the ball very well today," Lady Commander coach Erica Powell said.
Camille Cross went 3-for-3 and scored three times while Rutledge reache don three bunt singles.
Jessi Couch hit an RBI triple off the center-field fence in the third and drove in two runs in the sixth when her bases-loaded popup wasn't caught. The infield-fly rule was called with one runner scoring and the other coming home on an errant throw to the plate.
Kenzie Dye delivered a two-run single in the fourth while Kelcey Lee singled twice, scored twice and drove in a run. Carrie Fry singled and hit a stand-up triple to the left-field fence while Lindsey Farmer singled.
Friendship will host District 8-A rival Watertown today. Game time is set for 4 p.m., but Powell hopes to move the game earlier due to Senior Night activities at the school tonight.
