The bottom half of the Coffee County order did the majority of the damage Wednesday night in Shelbyville.

Batters 5 through 9 scored 10 of Coffee County’s 12 runs while Kaitlyn Davis and Lily Norman combined to pitch a shutout in a 12-0 win.

It was a slow start. Coffee County busted the 0-0 tie with a 6-run top of the fourth inning – aided by a couple of Shelbyville errors on well-placed Lady Raider bunts. They added 1 more in the sixth and 5 in the seventh.

Carden and Jalyn Moran doubled.

Kaitlyn Davis earned the win in the circle. Davis was sharp, only allowing 2 hits – both infield singles. She walked one and struck out 9 through 5 innings. Freshman Lily Norman cleaned things up, tossing 2 scoreless innings while allowing a hit and striking out 3.
