Holtville and Wetumpka escaped the rain just long enough to play their first meeting of the season last week. KK Dismukes pitched seven shutout innings and added three hits at the plate to lead the Bulldogs to a 4-0 win over the Indians.
Dismukes (6-1) struck out 10 batters and allowed only three Wetumpka players to reach base, none of them reaching second. Her three hits were a game-high and included a solo home run in the top of the sixth inning to extend Holtville’s lead.
Zoe Lowe had an RBI sacrifice fly in the second inning to open the scoring for the Bulldogs. Alexus Hindman added a two-run single in the sixth inning but Dismukes did not need much run support.
Rebeka Cannon pitched a complete game for Wetumpka, allowing eight hits and three earned runs while striking out one batter. Markie Hicks, Lily Gray and Mya Holt each recorded a hit at the plate for the Indians.
Wetumpka responded by grabbing its first win of the season Saturday with a 10-0 victory at Carroll. Holt allowed just three hits over five innings in the circle to record the win.
Stanhope caps off busy weekend with road victory
Stanhope Elmore responded to three losses over the weekend with a 10-2 win at Montgomery Catholic on Monday night. After falling behind 1-0, the Mustangs scored 10 runs in the final two innings to run away with the victory.
Morgan Carroll hit a two-run single in the top of the sixth to put Stanhope ahead for the first time. It was her lone hit of the game but she was the only Mustang to record two RBIs on the night, adding to her team-high 15 for the season.
Brooke Burkett led the Mustangs with three hits, including two doubles, and was one of four players to score two runs for Stanhope. Her RBI double in the sixth inning put Stanhope ahead 3-1 which was enough to get the Mustangs to 5-4 on the season.
Neci King pitched a complete game in the circle for Stanhope. After allowing a run in the first inning, King responded with 12 strikeouts over seven innings while allowing just four hits and one earned run.
