The Edmonson County Wildcat varsity baseball team had no trouble taking care of business against Thomas Nelson High School last night as they dominated the Generals 11-0 behind Dylan Waldrop's 5 inning complete game shutout in their first game of the season in Bardstown.
Waldrop allowed only one hit while notching 7 strikeouts. Coach Bo West said Waldrop had a bit of a shaky start, giving up 4 walks in the first two innings, but settled in and finished with a solid performance. "Dylan pitched great," West said.
Waldrop impressed offensively as well, going 2-4 with 3 RBI's, but several other Wildcats also had solid numbers.
"Offensively, I was very pleased with how we executed," said West. "We had quality at-bats which led to a high on-base percentage for the team. We sacrificed runners over in key situations to get players in scoring position and we did a good job driving those runs in."
Caleb Skaggs was 1-3 with a walk and 2 stolen bases, Shawn Winchester went 2-2 with 2 RBI's and a stolen base, Hunter Garrett was 1-2 with one walk, a stolen base, and an RBI, Cole Logsdon went 1-2 with a walk and two RBI's, Matthew Jaggers was 1-2 with a stolen base, Walker Hazel was 1-3 with 2 RBI's, Logan Lindsey was 0-2 with a walk and a stolen base, and Tucker Cole went 0-1 with two walks and a stolen base.
"We put a lot of pressure on the other team with our speed, stealing 6 bases," West added. Overall, I'm very pleased with the team and their effort in our first game of the season."
Tonight's game has been cancelled due to wet field conditions. (Tuesday, March 15)
The Wildcats will travel to Todd County on Thursday for a makeup game, then will take on Metcalfe County Friday for the first home game of the season.
