10-run 2nd inning carries Wolfpack past Tell City

-A A +A

TELL CITY—Crawford County scored 10 second-inning runs to beat Tell City 10-4 in a rain-shortened girls softball game Tuesday.
Crawford County had only four hits in five innings. But the Wolfpack took advantage of six walks, two errors and two wild pitches in their big inning.
The good news for the Marksmen, though, is they are starting to hit better. Jessie Wheatley went 3 for 3 with a double and three RBIs to lead their six-hit attack.
She raised her season batting average to .500 (6 for 12).
After Wheatley hit a double over the left-fielder’s head in the fifth inning, Julie Lindauer hit a triple that one-hopped the fence in left.
Those two were due up in the sixth inning after Sydney Goffinet singled and Monica Bartley was hit by a pitch to put runners on first and second with no outs.
But rain then ended the game.
Madison Schuetter pitched the first 12⁄3 innings for Tell City to take the loss, walking four and striking out four.
McKenzie Hayes walked two in two-thirds of an inning and Bailey Sandage walked none and struck out three in three innings.
Tell City, 2-14, will visit Boonville today at 5 p.m.
