It took a little while for the Lady Raiders to pull away, but a six run fourth and a four run sixth led to a 16-5 drubbing of Shelbyville Thursday night in Bedford County – a game you heard live on Thunder Radio.
Junior Kaitlyn Davis launched two home runs and knocked in 5 runs for the Lady Raiders. Freshman Channah Gannon got the start at third base and knocked a pair of doubles for two of her team-leading four hits on the night.
Kiya Ferrell and Olivia Evans also added 3 hits for the Lady Raiders, who finished with 16 total hits. Ferrell scored 4 times and Evans times. Evans also stole 3 bases in the win.
Davis earned the win for CHS – scattering 5 hits. She allowed 5 runs but only 1 was earned as the Lady Raiders struggled defensively with 4 errors.
