The Warren County High School softball team suffered a 10-0 defeat at the hands of the Cookeville Lady Cavaliers Tuesday night in Cookeville.
The Lady Pioneers managed only two hits in the loss, sending their record to 9-8 on the season with a few games left until the district tournament.
Neva Tackett and Abby Hutchins got the only two hits for the Lady Pioneers during the off night at the plate. Lindsey Cox suffered the loss on the mound, going two innings, while surrendering seven runs.
The Lady Pioneers had runners on base in the top of the first but didn’t get any runs across, failing to take the early advantage on the road. Cox got two quick outs in the bottom of the inning but the lady Cavs managed to score a run on a passed ball to take the lead, 1-0, after one.
After Tackett singled to start the second, the Lady Pioneer bats turned cold, suffering three quick outs to end the top half of the inning. The Lady Cavaliers increased their lead in the bottom of the inning scoring on a home run, three RBI doubles, a single, and a sacrifice fly, 7-0.
The Lady Cavaliers had all of the momentum on their home field and the Lady Pioneers didn’t change that as they went down in order in the top of the third.
Ashton Whiles replaced Cox on the mound in the bottom of the third, but the Lady Cavalier bats remained hot.
A 2-RBI double and an error by the Lady Pioneers, allowed the Lady Cavaliers to score three runs in the bottom of the inning to give them the double-digit lead, 10-0, after three.
The Lady Pioneers kept getting runners on base in the fourth and fifth innings but that didn’t lead to scoring runs and the Lady Cavs went on to defeat the Lady Pioneers, 10-0, in five innings.
The Lady Pioneers were back on the diamond Thursday night as they celebrated senior night and faced against Stone Memorial. Results weren’t available at press time.
