Moore fires one-hitter as Lady Tigers get OVC win
PROCTORVILLE — Sometimes, Keegan Moore seems almost unhittable.
Monday was one of those times.
The Ironton junior right-hander gave up just one hit and struck out 17 of the 21 outs as the Lady Fighting Tigers blanked the Fairland Lady Dragons 7-0 in an Ohio Valley Conference game.
Moore also went 2-4 with a double and a home run as Ironton got 9 hits. Holly Dutey was 2-4 with a double.
Breena Reedy had a double in the fifth inning for Fairland’s only hit.
Emily Bowen took the loss as she struck out 4 and walked 2. She was hampered by 5 Fairland errors.
Ironton got what proved to be the only run it needed in the first inning when Kirsten Williams walked and scored on Moore’s double.
The Lady Tigers used a Fairland error to score in the third when Graycie Brammer was safe on an error and courtesy runner Olivia Duncan scored on Kylee Richendollar’s single.
The lead went to 4-0 in the fifth as Moore started the rally with a solo home run. Kiandra Martin doubled and later scored on Kylie Miller’s ground out.
Ironton got 3 runs in the sixth.
Jada Rogers was safe on an error and scored on Brammer’s double. Williams tripled her home and she scored on a single by Richendollar.
