Game Recap

Franklin County earned a 10-inning conference road victory over Batesville at Liberty Park in a 2-1 game. Both teams had outstanding pitching performances throughout the game and made runs hard to come by. With Batesville grabbing an early 1 run lead in the 2nd inning, senior Jake Fields evened up the game with a solo blast to right center in the 4th inning as part of a 4-4 night. Over the next 5 innings both teams threatened to score, but were unable to push a run across. FC was unable to execute in the 7th inning with 2 runners on and no out.

In the 10th inning, Logan Winters, after re-entering after an injury, led off the inning with an infield hit. Trevin Manderschied reached base on a bunt the next batter to give the Wildcats two runners on. After a Winters steal, Tommy Ratz hit a sacrifice fly to score Winters from 3rd to give FC a one run lead.

On the mound, Alex Bischoff went 7 strong innings before giving way to Blake Ripperger who pitched 3 scoreless innings, including striking out the side in the bottom of the 10th to finish the game.

FC (7-0, 3-0) will host Lawrenceburg Thursday, then travel to Hagerstown Friday and Rushville for a doubleheader Saturday.
