South’s bats remain red-hot

CORBIN — By Les Dixon

SOUTH LAUREL — The South Laurel Lady Cardinals ended the game against Whitley County the way they began — hitting home runs.

Amber Hyde’s three-run shot in the first inning gave her a team a 3-0 edge while Megan Smith’s two-run blast in the bottom of the sixth inning, sealed the deal for the Lady Cardinals, as South Laurel cruised to an easy 11-1 win over the Lady Colonels.

“We hit the ball really well,” South Laurel coach James Burns said. “Hagan (Burns) pitched well, but we made too many errors.

“So far we’re playing pretty good,” he added. “I’m interested in seeing a close game and seeing how we react — Scott County will be a good test.”

The win improves South Laurel to 3-0 overall and 2-0 in 50th District play, as they have outscored their opponents this season, 44-1.

The Lady Cardinals pounded out 16 hits against Whitley County’s pitching and now has 46 hits during their first three games.

Hagan Burns picked up the win on the mound, striking out nine batters while allowing one hit and one unearned run.
