SOUTH POINT — It was more pitching, more hitting and more wining for the South Point Lady Pointers.

Kaitlyn Brown pitched a three-hitter and the Lady Pointers had 10 hits as they beat the River Valley Lady Raiders 11-2 on Friday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.

Brown racked up 12 strikeouts in the win.

“Brown pitched well after a day of rest,” said Lady Pointers’ coach Tanner Heaberlin.

“Abbey Winkler has been doing a great job getting on base and Bri Whaley had a big night. Rawlins and Hileman had been seeing the ball really well the last few games.”

South Point (9-1, 5-0) took a 3-0 lead in the second inning.

Halie Powell singled, Hannah Carey was safe on an error and Brown put down a squeeze bunt for a run. Bonnie Hileman hit a sacrifice fly and Winkler singled in a run.

The Lady Raiders scored two in the top of the fourth to make it 3-2, but the Lady Pointers got a run in the bottom of the inning on a walk to Brown, a ground out and a passed ball.

South Point erupted for seven runs in the fifth.

Whaley walked, Haley Rawlins singled and Andi Kleinman had a two-run double. Powell and Brown walked to load the bases and Hileman had a two-run single.

Winkler walked and Whaley cleared the bases with a three-run double.

Winkler was 2-3 while Kleinman and Rawlins were 2-4.
