Carmi downs Woodlawn

WOODLAWN — Carmi-White County jumped out early in an 11-3 win over the host Lady Cardinals on Wednesday.

That's a good team, and they worked some good at-bats,” Woodlawn coach Matt Patterson said. “When we didn't make the right pitch they made us pay.”

Carmi didn't have any gigantic offensive innings against Woodlawn but consistently scored to build its sizable winning margin. The offense started early when the Lady Bulldogs tallied three runs in the first, including a leadoff homer to center from Kelsey Rogers.

It wasn't too bad, they just tacked some on against us,” Patterson said.

Kiara Lueking struggled at times to find the strike zone and walked several batters. The walks came back to hurt Woodlawn with several scoring. Lueking walked a pair of Carmi batters in the fourth and both came around. Again in the fifth, Lueking walked a pair. She was later removed but both scored again. This time against relief pitcher Carly Ethridge.

When you had to groove them, they're pretty good hitters, and they made us pay for them,” Patterson said.

Ethridge pitched the final three innings for the Lady Cardinals.

Carmi pitcher Bailey Winters limited Woodlawn's offensive chances throughout the game as the Lady Cardinals finished with four hits. The lone extra-base knock of the game for Woodlawn came off Lueking's bat in the bottom of the first inning. The freshman knocked a home run to center field to make the score 3-1.

Woodlawn also cut the deficit to 4-2 in the third when Ethridge drove home Lueking on an infield single. Woodlawn never got closer as Carmi tacked on several late runs.

Woodlawn's final run of the game came in the seventh after Lueking garnered an RBI groundout.

Allison England had two of Woodlawn's four hits and also reached base after a walk.

Their pitcher did a good job, but offensively I thought we had some pretty good at-bats,” Patterson said. “We hit some balls hard. Their second baseman made two or three nice plays. I wasn't too disappointed offensively.”

Woodlawn is 4-3 this season.
