On the same cool (cold?) opening day of spring, both the Logan County Lady Cougars and Cougars won games on the diamond Tuesday.

Brady Hinton and Kade Wall scored three runs each, and seven other players—Harper Butler, Samuel Hayes, Noah Mosley, Chance Sweeney, Davin Yates, Dayman McLean and James Singleton—scored two each as Coach Ethan Meguiar’s team crushed Allen County-Scottsville 23-1 in three innings.

Eric Walker, Colin Wetton and Jason Mautz added a run each.

This came on eight hits and a staggering 12 walks. Hinton walked three times and McLean and Wall twice each. Tripp Wadlington, Hayes, Butler, Sweeney and Yates also walked. Hayes and Yates both stole a base.

Logan only got two extra-base hits, doubles by Mosley and Sweeney.

Deuces were wild for Hayes, who had two each of hits, runs and RBIs. Butler, Sweeney and Wadlington each singled and drove in three runs apiece. Also getting RBIs were Mosley, Yates, McLean, and Singleton. Butler, Yates and McLean each had a hit.

McLean pitched the first two innings and got the win. He only allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three Patriots. Braden Engler pitched a hitless, scoreless inning of relief, striking out two and walking one.

Lady Cougars 6, Greenwood 2

Shayla Johnson pitched a complete game, seven innings of seven-hit, two-walk, three-strikeout ball. Only one of the runs was earned.

Emerson McKinnis stroked her third home run of the young season. She also walked twice, had two RBIs and scored.

Hailey Burgess had two hits and scored. Kinley Holloway and Trinity Case each doubled in a run before scoring themselves. Johnson singled and drove in two runs. Keirsten Harper added a hit. Nora Epley got one of only three Logan walks, and she scored. Also scoring was Addison Holloway.

Coach Gary Gettings’ Lady Cougars remain undefeated on the season.
