Wildcats' early lead enough at Chattooga
The Woodland Wildcats scored in every inning except the seventh Monday night in a 13-9 win over Chattooga in Summerville.
Woodland went up 10-0 in the top of the third on two runs in the first, five runs in the second, and three more in the third frame.
The big margin did not last long, however, as the Indians posted seven runs of their own in the bottom of the third to narrow the lead to 10-7.
The Wildcats added single runs in each of the next three innings and Chattooga managed only two more in the bottom of the fifth for the 13-9 final score.
Both teams finished the night with nine hits.
Jacob Frye had three hits, including a triple, and two RBIs for Woodland. Noah Ludy had a double and drove in three runs. Jordan Lee also finished with a hit and three RBIs. Jacob Harper, Toby Queen, Cauy Williams, and Trenton Harrison also produced hits for the Wildcats.
Kenny Jinks (3 IP, 7R, 3ER, 7H, 1BB, 5K) started on the mound for Woodland and was awarded the pitching victory. Frye (1.1 IP, 2R, 1ER, 0H, 4BB, 3K) and Williams (1.2 IP, 0R, 2H, 0BB, 4K) pitched in middle relief. Tommy Peed struck out the side in the seventh inning to earn a save.
Chattooga (0-8) remained winless on the year with the loss.
Woodland (9-1) will host Calhoun Thursday and Cedartown Friday. Both games are scheduled for 5pm.
