Charlestown took advantage of sloppy Corydon Central defense in the third inning to post four key runs.
Behind the effective pitching of Carly Price, the Lady Pirates scored an 8-1 victory over host Corydon Central last Tuesday in Mid-Southern Conference play.
In the third, a pair of outfield errors led to MacKenzie Smith and Leah Sherrill reaching base with one out.
After an infield miscue, Charlestown loaded the bases for Lexi Logsdon to hit a sac fly to center. With two down, Bethany Hall cleared the bases with a triple to left.
The four-run third inning gave Charlestown a 5-1 lead.
Singles by Corydon Central’s Sydney Oskin and Sophie Cesar began the first and third innings, but, neither were able to advance beyond first base.
Trailing 6-0 in the bottom of the fourth, Corydon Central’s Jenna Stiles and Bethany McClanahan strung together singles. The threat ended when Savanna Wiseman grounded into a 5-3 double play.
Corydon Central’s only run came late. After Charlestown added two runs in the top half, Cesar connected for her third hit of the game.
Her double set up Oskin’s infield single, which plated Cesar.
Cesar finished with three hits, while Oskin and Stiles had two each.
‘Sophie Cesar missed a ball in the outfield but left it there,’ Corydon Central coach Kim Briscoe said. ‘She didn’t let it affect her bat. She kept playing hard.’
Oskin took the loss, striking out two while giving up three earned runs. Charlestown outhit the Lady Panthers 10-8.
Charlestown’s offense was led by Smith’s three hits.
Carly Price earned the victory, walking none and striking out five.
