The Lady Cats disposed of the Lady Cougars with little trouble tonight at Grayson County as home runs paced the offense for Edmonson County in a 15-6 win.
Addie Childress, an eighth grader, hit her first career varsity homer in the top of the sixth, which was a three-run shot over the wall in the right gap that gave the Lady Cats a 12-4 lead. The home run was part of six-run inning for Edmonson County.
Sophomore Julie Norris hit her second home run in as many games in the next inning; it was a two-run homer just left of center field. It increased the Lady Cat to 15-6, which would be the final score of the game. She also hit a home run in a loss to Larue County this past Saturday with a ball that hit the top of the fence and went over.
Norris also pitched the seven-inning complete game, giving up three earned runs on 10 hits. She struck out two and walked two.
Every Lady Cat in the game recorded at least one base hit tonight. Makayla Hogg went 3-5 with 1 RBI, Callie Webb was 2-3 with 2 RBIs, and and Jolee Vincent was 2-3 with 4 RBIs. Childress and Norris were both 2-4 and each had 3 RBIs.
Edmonson County notched 15 hits against two Grayson County pitchers and all 15 runs were earned against the Lady Cougars. Grayson pitching combined for 5 walks, 4 wild pitches, and 5 batters hit-by-pitch.
The Lady Cats are now 6-4 on the season and are scheduled to take on Butler County on Thursday.
