Shelby Shuts Out Windsor

SHELBYVILLE, IL. —

Shelbyville's senior pitching star, "Amazing" Grace Moll, struck out 12 batters and the Ram hit crew 

knocked out 14 hits as they shut out Windsor in the season opener, 6-0.

As usual, Moll held the opposition down from the mound and allowed her teammates to peck away and then cash in late. Moll led the hit squad going 4-for-5 with a double and two runs. Catcher Cinnae Martin was back with a vengeance after a year off and hit 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI. Third baseman Rachel Fox also had a multiple hit day, going 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI. 

Five other Rams hit safely to start the season. First baseman Madison Boone was 1-for-4 with two stolen bases and a run. Second baseman Kayla Brachbill was 1-for-4, Center fielder Brandi Smith was 1-for-4, left fielder Jensen Cloe was 1-for-4, and right fielder Lindsey Eigsti was 1-for-3 with a run.

The Rams got on the board early, when Moll led off the game with a double. Martin followed with a single. Boone reached on an error and Moll scored, 1-0. Boone stole 2nd and Fox reached on an error, but the Rams left the bases loaded.

Windsor ace Lindsay Floyd escaped a rally, but the Devils couldn't capitalize. Moll rang up the first three Devil batters, two on full counts.

Lindsey Eigsti drew a 1-out walk in the 2nd and Martin hit a 2-out RBI double, sending Eigsti home, 2-0.

The Rams retired the Devils in order again in the 2nd. Fox threw out the first batter, 3rd to 1st, and Moll gunned down the next two batters.

Floyd threw her third strikeout to start the 3rd and threw out the next batter. But with two down, the Devils booted a ball and Fox reached base again.Smith singled and an error on the play sent Fox home. Floyd threw another K, but she was down 3-0.
