Back in the Win Column

After a string of tough losses, Shelbyville Moulton returned home, Monday, and overcame St. Elmo/Brownstown to get back in the win column, 16-13.

A host of runs were scored in the 1st , 2nd, and 3rd innings by both teams. They traded 7-run innings, but St. Elmo lead after three innings, 12-10. From that point St. Elmo ran out of ammo, while the Rams pulled away, out-scoring the visitors 6-1 in the final three and a half innings.

Parkinson and Viramentos led off for St. Elmo in the 1st with singles and both scored. But Kayla McGabe rang up three batters after the first two singles and got out of the inning, down 2-0. Shelby then broke out.

Hannah Kemp led off the Ram 1st with a double, followed by Blair Rodman's single and Sydney Trainor drawing a walk. After a fielder's choice Savannah Marty reached on a dropped 3rd strike. Kendyll Dunaway hit an RBI single. With two outs, Isabel Logue walked and Jayde Fox singled. Up 5-2, Kemp, Rodman, and Trainor walked, forcing in two more runs.

St. Elmo answered the Shelby 7-run rally with one of their own in the 2nd. McCabe struck out the first batter, but catcher interference put a runner on. Two walks and a fielder's choice were followed by an RBI single. A single, a hit batter and a walk were followed by another McCabe strikeout. Catcher interference and a walk made it 9-7 St. Elmo, before McCabe rang up the last batter in the 2nd.

Shelby had Dunaway and Logue draw walks in the 2nd and Fox was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Kemp then came through with an RBI single. Rodman then walked to force in another run and tie the score, 9-9.

St. Elmo was still hot and got the first three batters on in the 3rd on a walk and back-to-back singles. An error and a ground out made it 12-9 ST. Elmo, before McCabe threw another K to end the at bat.
