The Lynn Camp Wildcats recovered from their no-hit loss to South Laurel by handing homestanding Evarts a 13-5 loss.

The Wildcats (7-9) jumped on Evarts early, as Tyler Brock’s three-run hit in the first inning scored Matt May, Brandon Abner and Cody Sapcut and the Tommie Helton’s Wildcats never looked back.

“This was a good win for us,” Helton said. “We already have confidence after playing teams like Corbin and Whitley County close, but this gave us some more.

“The kids are starting to figure out that we’re a pretty good baseball team,” He added. “I thought we looked good against Evarts. We got good pitching and hitting.”

Brock continued his hot-hitting in the third inning and drove in his fourth RBI, while Sapcut connected with a double to give Lynn Camp a 6-0 edge.

Evarts tried to rally, but Helton’s Wildcats wouldn’t quit at the plate.

Both Abner and Ryan Moore scored in the inning, while Jeff Moore drove in a run to break the game open.

Lynn Camp added four runs in the fifth inning to pick up the win.

Ryan Moore was credited with the win on the mound, which helped the Wildcats capture their third win in their last five games.

“Ryan Moore is starting come around for us in pitching and hitting and that’s big,” Helton said. “We’re really improving, but we still have a bit to go. We’re still making some mistakes, but we’re beginning to string some things together.”

Lynn Camp will be back in action today at home against Wayne County.
