BAINBRIDGE – Bainbridge-Guilford trailed by three runs after the top half of the first inning as Edmeston was able to get on the scoreboard on a cold, windy night. However, in Bobcats’ fashion, they answered in the second inning with five runs to take the lead and the win over the Panthers by a final score of 11-3.

B-G’s Ashley Matthews hit yet another home run this season – her second of the year – in the contest, a two-run shot in the bottom of the fifth inning to give the home team their final tally of 11 runs scored.

Matthews finished with three RBIs on two hits and teammate Bailey Hart also finished with two hits and a RBI in the win. One of Hart’s two hits was an extra base hit where she stopped at second.

Dealing with the elements was B-G’s starting pitcher Alli Miller. As it was a cold night for the game, it took the first inning for her to adjust and settle in.

Putting in four innings of work inside the pitcher’s circle, Miller struck out seven Edmeston batters, but gave up three walks and two hits. Despite allowing three earned runs in the first, the Bobcats’ junior came away with the win.
