Shelby sluggers beat Monticello

The Shelbyville Sluggers teed off with three home runs and a triple and 15 hits as they doubled-up Monticello on Friday, 12-6.

The Rams put up four 3-run rallies, as they kept spinning the revolving door at home plate, and they got started right out of the gate.

Lead-off hitter Jensen Cloe drew a walk in the 1st, followed by Kayla Brachbill's triple, 1-0. Grace Moll stepped to the plate and she clobbered a 2-run homer, 3-0. The Rams weren't done. Madison Boone singled, Brandy Smith singled and Abbie Watton reached on an error. The bases were loaded with no outs, but Monty's pitcher mercifully got out of the inning with two strikeouts and a pop-out.

Monty got two of the those runs right back in their half. Moll have up the first of her seven walks. A sacrifice fly and another walk, put two on with one out. Moll threw a strikeout, but then gave up a 2-RBI hit. She rang up the next batter, but it was just a 1-run game, 3-2 Rams.

Shelby got two men in scoring position in the 2nd, but couldn't get them in. Brachbill singled and Moll was walked with one out. Two fly balls were caught and Monty came up in the 2nd.

Moll was in charge in the 2nd, KO-ing the first two batters, then getting the third to ground out to Rachel Fox, 3rd to 1st.

Shelby broke loose again in the 3rd. Watton led off with a single and Fox followed with a single. Lindsey Eigsti sacrificed the runners over and Courtney Williams singled to drive in a run, 4-2.

With one out and a runner on 3rd, Cloe drove the ball for a sacrifice fly, scoring Fox, 5-2. Williams scored and the Rams had separation, 6-2.

Monty got two hits to start the bottom of the 3rd. Moll gave up another walk and Valentine scored on a passed ball, 6-3.
