Union County High School
Franklin County High School
Franklin County earned a non-conference win over Union County Monday night, 9-1. With both teams struggling to find offense the first two innings, the bats came alive when FC put 4 on the board in the 3rd. The Wildcats would score 3 in the 4th and 2 in the 5th to expand the lead to 9-1. Offensively, Brennan Meyers led the team with 3 hits (2 doubles) and 5 RBI. Jake Fields contributed 2 hits while Grant Smith, Logan Winters and Joe Monroe each knocked in a run. Joe Monroe went 5 innings on the mound to earn his 3rd win of the year. Blake Ripperger and Matthew Billman each pitched an inning to end the game.
Weather permitting, FC has a busy week. The Wildcats will play Northeastern on Wednesday, South Dearborn on Thursday and a doubleheader against Connersville on Saturday, all games this week are at home.
