Shelby sluggers beat Monticello

(Continued)

With two men on and no outs, Moll took over. She threw out the next batter from the mound, then rang up the next two.

Shelby scorched Monty with another 3-run rally in the 4th. Moll led off with a single, then Boone went yard on the first pitch, her fifth homer in a week, scoring two. Smith, the third batter of the inning with no outs, came to the plate and got every bit of a 1-0 pitch, hitting a back-to-back homer. With one out, Fox singled, but was stranded. No matter, Shelby was up 9-3.

Moll KO'd the first batter in the Monty 4th. She gave up a single and the #9 batter reached on an error. With two on and one out, Moll threw out a batter on a comebacker to the mound, then rang up the next batter.

Like an all-you-can-eat buffet, the Rams came back for more in the 5th. They launched their third 3-run rally in three innings.

Cloe led off with a single. She forced out on a fielder's choice. But, Moll singled and the Rams had two on with one out. Boone reached on an error. Brachbill scored. After a ground out, Watton singled in another run and the Rams were up 12-3.

Monty had a long way to go and a short time to get there. Moll gave up three straight walks and a couple of passed balls. After she threw a strikeout, a single drove in a run. Moll reared back and threw two more Ks to get out of the inning, still up 12-5.

Shelby went in order in the 6th and Monty looked to close the gap more. Moll rang up the first batter, then gave up a hit. A walk and a couple wild pitches scored a run. Williams then threw out a batter, 2nd to 1st. Moll hit a batter, but Smith squeezed a fly ball in center to keep Monty back, 12-6.
