Clark County Comes Alive Late To Blast Lady Tigers

For three innings, Monday night’s softball game at Clark County was a pitchers dual. That was until the Lady Indians broke out the bats in the bottom of the fourth frame, batting around the order en route to a nine-run rally that gave Clark County the 10-0 victory.

Up to that point, Scotland County hurler Karra Small had virtually matched the league’s leading MVP candidate, pitcher Ashley Wallingford, pitch for pitch. The Lady Tigers junior hurler opened the contest by striking out the side.

Then to start the second inning she took a line drive off her midsection. Small was able to continue but saw Clark County plate one run and have the bases loaded. Small responded by fanning the next three batters to keep her team in the game trailing just 1-0.

As it turns out, that one run may have been enough. Wallingford allowed SCR-I just two hits and walked one while striking out 12 Scotland County batters.

The Clark County bats put the game away in the fourth inning as the Lady Indians reached the 10-run rule courtesy in large part to a grand slam home run by Courtney Schuman.

Kellyn Wickert and Ali Fromm had the lone hits for the Lady Tigers. Jamie Fuller reached on the base on balls and stole a base.

Small took the loss, allowing 13 hits and two walks in five innings of work. She did fan nine Clark County batters. Her record falls to 5-4 on the season.
