The Edmonson County Wildcats improved to 4-0 on the season with a dominating 11-1 win over Fort Campbell at home on Saturday.
Sophomore Logan Minton allowed only one hit over 4 innings, earning 4 strikeouts with no walks.
"Logan was very solid on the mound," said Coach Bo West. "He got ahead in the count of every batter he faced, which led to only 36 pitches in 4 innings of work."
Also impressing was sophomore Tucker Cole as he went 3-3 at the plate, notching two doubles and triple. Cole finished with 3 RBIs. "He had one of those days where a baseball looks like a beach ball, and he didn't miss," said West. "If the wind wouldn't have been blowing in, he could've very well had three homeruns. Any other day, those would've been out of the park instead of off the wall."
A total of 8 Wildcats earned base hits on the day as Hunter Garrett also had a good day, going 2-3 with a walk and 1 RBI. Holden Skaggs was 1-2 with a stolen base, Walker Hazel was 1-3 with an RBI and a stolen base, Logan Lindsey was 1-3 with 2 stolen bases, Dylan Waldrop 1-4 with 2 RBI's, Preston Dunn was 1-2 with an RBI, and Matthew Jaggers went 1-3 with 2 RBI's.
The Wildcats have used their speed to rack up several stolen bases each game, and ECHS batters are getting the job done with runners in scoring position.
"We have a lot of overall team speed and we're trying to utilize that by disrupting the base paths, by keeping the other team uncomfortable," West said. "Our guys are doing a great job of playing team baseball right now. Our speed guys are doing their job of getting on base and sacrificing themselves over to get in scoring position, and our power guys are doing their jobs driving them in. They're all doing a great job executing right now and understanding their roles on offense, and it's been fun to watch."
The Wildcats will travel to Hardinsburg as they take on Breckinridge County on Tuesday, March 22nd at 6pm. They are currently ranked number one in the district and ranked second in the third region.
