WCMS sweeps doubleheader

If the WCMS softball team ever needs to move a game, it can always make plans to play at Franklin South. It’s the Lady Pioneers’ second home.

Warren County dominated a doubleheader against the Lady Trojans Tuesday, winning 10-0 and 11-2 to move its record to 4-1 this season.

Bella Bain threw a no-hitter in the first game, going five innings without allowing a hit while striking out five. She was backed up by a booming offense, which rolled up four runs in each of the first two innings and two more in the third.

Jessie Young and Gracie Randolph spearheaded the offensive onslaught, each finishing with a hit and two RBIs. Kora Forbes and Brooklyn Cope both added hits, while Alyssa Mosley finished with one RBI.

The Lady Pioneer offense was aided by eight errors by Franklin South, along with eight free passes.

The second game again saw Warren County jump out to an early lead, thanks to six runs in the first inning. Cope had a two-out, two-run double in the frame, while Dallis Melton added an RBI single, scoring Forbes.

Cope’s offense made her job easier in the circle. She earned the victory, going five innings and striking out six.

Lead-off hitter Cadi Todd did her job setting up the offense in the second game, finishing with two hits and scoring three times. Cope, Young, Bain, Melton, Maggy Whiles and Jazz Ward all finished with one hit. Young, Randolph, Melton and Halle Lowe each had RBIs.

Warren County’s schedule has been hit by a slew of postponements due to poor field conditions. Coach Joe Damon announced Thursday the Lady Pioneers will play a make-up game at Oakland Saturday, April 13 and at DeKalb County Thursday, April 4. 

The DeKalb County game was set to be played Friday, but was postponed due to the school being dismissed due to illness.
