Wildcat team crosses the plate 18 times in the first inning By Chris Case Assistant Editor Suffering from a rash of troubles on the mound and also behind the plate Monday night, the Bourbon Crush were pounded 30-7 by the Cuba 12 & under softball team. Down 2,0, the Cuba Lady Wildcats batted through their lineup three times in the first inning without recording a single out. After putting 18 runs on the board, Coach Nancy Montgomery finally called a merciful end to the inning, sending her team back onto the field to give Bourbon a chance to bat again. The Crush gave up 12 walks, four hits, and beaned two batters in the first inning alone. They never did get hn out as their pitch- ing staff failed to keep the ball in the strike zone and passed balls allowed the Wildcat runners to have their way on the base paths. In the second inning, after Bourbon picked up three more runs in their half, Cuba stormed back with seven runs to make the score 25-5. A seven run rule was then installed to allow both teams a chance at the plate. With Kylie Ettinger on the mound, the Wildcats shut down the Crush in the third inning, ending the frame with a 1-4 double play from Ettinger to Haylee Bess at second base and not allow- ing a run. Bess led off the bottom of the inning with a single arm later came around to score. The Lady Cats picked up five more runs in the third behind two hits, two walks, an error, and a hit batter. In the fourth inning, with Kaliann Rikard pitching in relief, the Crush plated two runners after drawing three walks and pick- ing up a single. Moving from catcher to left field, Mariah Montgomery threw out a runner at the plate to save a run in the inning, and later combined with Bess at second to doable off a runner and end the game. Ettinger, who started the game on the mound, pitched three two runs, a innings complete, allowing four walks, , hits, five and hit batter. She struck out three and picked up the win. In relief, Rikard pitched one inning. She gave up a hit, two runs, and three walks. For Cuba's offense, Danielle Watring knocked two singles, had two walks, two runs scored, and two RBIs; Bess singled, had three walks, was hit by a pi{ch, and scored four times; Ettinger singled three times, walked, scored fourruns, and picked up three RBIs; Taylor Albert walked two times, scored three times, and had an RBI; Montgomery was hit by a pitch, walked twice, and scored three runs; Kaliann Rikard singled, with three walks and four. runs scored; Katy Pilkenton scored four times, with two walks and was hit by a pitch; Knylti Hewkin was hit, walked twice, andscored three runs with an RBI; Shelby Dorf singled twice, led the team With four RBIs, scored a pair of runs, was hit and walked; and Brittney Barrick walked two times, scored, and drove in a run. www.cubafreepress.com Mlseourl Dept. of Conservation photo hunters Will have the same number of days to hunt and most other early-migrating birds this year.
