Rams Roll Over Clinton

Shelbyville (12-1, 3-0 OVC) pounded their way past Clinton on Monday for the second time this season, striking early, then pulling away for an 8-1 victory.

The Rams smacked 12 hits, including four of them in the 1st inning. The biggest hit came in the 6th, when Luke McConnell blasted a 3-run home run. The Rams had four batters with multiple hits, led by Eli Miller. Miller was 3-for-3 with two runs, a walk and an RBI double. Luke Hatfield was 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI-single. Neil Yockey was 2-for-3 with a run and McConnell was 2-for-4, scoring twice and driving in three.

Andrew Hawkins won his sixth game of the year in seven decisions, striking out eight batters in seven innings, while walking just one and only giving up three hits. The only run he gave up came off an error and an RBI single.

Clinton led off the 1st with a single and sacrificed the runner to 2nd. But Jake Keown threw out the next batter, 2nd to 1st and Hawkins rang up the following man to end the threat.

Shelby jumped on Clinton's starter out of the gate. Eli Miller led off the Ram 1st with a single. With one out, Luke Hatfield stroked an RBI-single and advanced to 2nd. Nate Standerfer got the third hit in four batters, an RBI-single, scoring Hatfield.

Close calls on the base paths was the only thing keeping the Rams from blowing Clinton out early. Andrew Hawkins reached on an error and Standerfer had a shot at making 3rd base, but was called out. Tyler Hendryx came in to run for Hawkins. Neil Yockey hit a single to right, but a great throw from the fielder beat Hendryx trying to score. It looked like Hendryx got in under the tag, but he was called out, 2-0 Rams.
