Redwomen win 3-1 in 8 innings

LLOYD, Ky. - When things get tight, the Rock Hill Redwomen get loose.

Locked in yet another close game, the Redwomen stepped up for a 3-1 win in eight innings Tuesday.

"It's always good to win a tight game to keep us ready for the tournament," Rock Hill coach Mary Harper said.

Bobbi Harper and Mandi Estep combined to allow just four hits, strike out seven and did not walk a batter.

"Our pitchers did a real good job. They didn't walk anyone and that's always good," coach Harper said.

Each team got a run in the fourth inning.

Bobbi Harper doubled and Katrina Settles singled, and Candice Chaffins grounded out as a run scored.

Greenup tied the game in the bottom of the inning when Nichol doubled and scored on a pair of ground outs.

The score remained tied until the eighth inning when the Redwomen scored twice.

Kayla Kelley was safe on an error and went to second base on a throwing error. Kelley went to third base on a wild pitch and Shelli Harper singled her home.

Mandi Estep singled Shelli Harper to third base and Bobbi Harper doubled for the second run.

Rock Hill, 20-5, plays Portsmouth West at 5 p.m. Thursday at Lucasville.
