Redwomen top Greenup, 4-2
PEDRO — It took all phases of the game to win, and Morgan Damron helped phase out the opposing hitters.
Damron tossed a 4-hitter as the Rock Hill Redwomen beat the Greenup County (Ky.) Lady Musketeers 4-2 Tuesday.
Damron struck out four and walked only two. Lisa Short pitched a 5-hitter with five strikeouts and not walks for Greenup.
“Morgan pitched a heck of a game. We played good defense and we hit the ball, we just hit it right at people,” said Rock Hill coach Mary Harper.
Greenup (12-5) got two runs in the top of the first inning.
Ashley Bates walked and came around to score on a pair of passed ball. Ashley Barlow then tripled and scored when Erica Pope grounded out.
Rock Hill (11-6) tied the game in the bottom of the first.
Courtney Duncan was safe on an error and BreeAnna Depriest reached when Greenup couldn’t play her sacrifice bunt attempt.
Chelsea Harper hit a sacrifice fly and then Morgan Schug was safe on an error and Dani Crabtree doubled to score Depriest.
The Redwomen got the deciding runs in the second inning.
Nicole Stamper singled, Haylia Gannon was safe on an error and Damron had an RBI single. A passed ball scored Gannon.
