Wildcat Baseball bounced back from three consecutive losses in a big way with a dominating 14-0 shutout over Todd County Central on Friday, April 13th in five innings.
Edmonson County rattled the Rebels early as they jumped out to 7-0 lead in the first inning, powered by two doubles, three singles, four walks, and a hit-by-pitch. Thirteen batters came to the plate in the inning.
Senior pitcher Logan Minton allowed only one hit over three innings with only one walk and four strikeouts. Junior Preston Dunn pitched two innings of relief in the non-save situation, giving up no hits, striking out two, while walking three.
Edmonson County's offense struck again in the third inning, highlighted by freshman Chaz Wilson's two-run homer. The Wildcats scored 6 more in the third, which put the game out of reach for the Rebels.
Wilson finished with 3 RBIs on the evening, along with senior Ryan Lindsey. Edmonson County took advantage of several scoring opportunities, something with which the Wildcats have struggled as of late.
"We have a really high team on-base percentage but we were struggling a little with leaving guys on base earlier in the season," said head coach Bo West. "Chaz has been having really good at-bats recently, so we moved him up in the lineup to give him more opportunities to drive in runs. He's done a really good job at that over the past few weeks."
The Wildcats' box score was: Minton 3-3, 2 RBI, L. Lindsey 2-2, Dunn 1-3, 1 RBI, Wilson 1-2, 3 RBI, Woodcock 1-2, 2 RBI, Meredith 1-1, G. Lindsey 2-3, 1 RBI, Decker 3-4, 1 RBI, R. Lindsey 2-3, 3 RBI. The team notched 16 total base hits.
Edmonson County is now 5-5 on the season. They are 2-0 in District 12 play and 2-1 against Third Region teams.
