Lady Rams Pummel Pana


Shelbyille's other college-bound ace, Abbie Watton took the hill on Saturday against Pana and pitched a 3-hitter over the 5-inning, 19-1 rout.

Shelby's #1 ace, Grace Moll shifted to shortstop and her catcher Cinnae Martin went to 2nd. Watton's battery-mate was Kayla Brachbill, who solidified her spot last year when Martin was out for the season. Watton and Brachbill were in control.

Watton struck out five, walked just one. She allowed just four base runners, with two more reaching on Ram errors. Pana got their only run on a 2-out double, followed by back-to-back singles. Watton then won a 3-2 battle with a KO to pull the plug on the Panthers only productive inning. 

As for the Rams hit squad, they were relentless smacking 14 hits for the second game in a row. They put up a 4-run 1st, a 6-run rally in the 2nd, and another 4-run boost in the 3rd. Before Pana ever got on the board they were down 14-zip. When Pana did score their solo run in the bottom of the 3rd, the Rams matched it in the top of the 4th to go up 15-1. Shelby added another multiple-run rally in the top of the 5th and kicked the rest of the dirt in on the Panther grave.

Four Rams starters had multiple-hit games and all but one starter hit safely. Brandy Smith was 3-for-3 with a grand slam home run and 5 RBIs. Kayla Brachbill was 2-for-3 with a double, a triple, 2 RBIs and two runs scored. Madison Boone went 2-for-4 with an RBI and scored three runs. Martin was 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored.

Moll was 1-for-4 with an RBI. Rachel Fox was 1-for-3 with a 2-run triple, three runs, and three RBIs. Watton was 1-for-3 with an RBI double. Courtney Williams was 1-for-1 with a run and Jensen Cloe was 1-for-2 with two runs scored.
