Wildcats collect road win at Central-Carroll
Woodland trailed in the early innings, but scored eight times over their final four offensive frames to earn a non-region road win at Central-Carroll Friday night, 10-6. Although the Wildcats’ defense struggled with seven miscues, the offense produced at the right times to pull out the victory.
Peyton Posey (4 IP, 3R, 1ER, 5H, 1BB, 1K) started on the mound for Woodland and picked up the pitching win. Carter Heath (3 IP, 3R, 0ER, 4H, 1BB, 3K) closed out the final three innings.
Central scored the only run of the first inning and led 3-1 after two frames, but the Wildcats scored in each remaining inning except the sixth on their way to their second win of the year. Scotty Smith had a two-hit game with a double and one RBI. Heath, Posey, and Chase Carson contributed one hit and one RBI each. Jackson Rutledge, Jakiyon Porter, and Zach Wilson had the other Woodland base hits. Six walks and five hit batsmen aided the Wildcats’ offense. Woodland also took advantage of the host Lions with their running game. Eight different players stole a base for the Wildcats led by Porter’s three swipes.
Woodland (2-2) plays at Wheeler Saturday. First pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m.
