“She throws so hard so you have to take the good with the bad like Bull Durham, so we’ll take it,” Adkins said. “She struck out 16 the first game but she had a lot of command. I was really happy with the way she pitched.”
Fleming would make things interesting in the bottom of the sixth, scoring two runs on a fielder’s choice and a beaten throw to the plate but Olive Hill just had enough to win the ballgame.
Allie Stone did what a leadoff hitter should do, going 4-for-4 at the plate with three singles and a double and scored three runs. Shavers went 2-for-3 with two RBI and Kallie Burchett had a couple of RBI as well. Brittany McGlone had a 1-for-3 performance at the plate with an RBI, and Kara Beth Jordan had a hit with an RBI. Ragan Adkins and Sara Oppenhimer each had an RBI.
Olive Hill moved onto the district championship Thursday against Ashland American.
