BAINBRIDGE – The Lady Bobcats’ Kori Thornton was just one inning away from completing a perfect game against the Delhi Bulldogs on Wednesday.
A fifth-inning walk, however, prevented the accomplishment from happening. Thornton still pitched a complete game no-hitter in the 21-0 win over, remaining undefeated on the mound this season.
Bainbridge-Guilford catcher Megan Palmatier connected in her last at-bat of the game, which resulted in a grand slam and brought in base-runners Marissa Cuozzo, Cici French and Alexis Gombach. Scoring four runs on the play, Bainbridge-Guilford ended the game at the inning’s end due to the run-rule.
