Trigg County High School’s baseball team picked up its first win of the 2010 season last Tuesday before losing three straight to 1st Region teams.

The Wildcats won their home opener 16-5 over Christian Fellowship School.

Trigg scored nine runs in the first inning and had built a 12-0 lead before the Eagles scored their first run in the third inning.

Jared Stallons was the winning pitcher for the Wildcats, striking out four and walking two in two innings of work. Dillon Dawson struck out three and walked four in an inning and a third on the mound.

At the plate, Trigg was led by Zack Bridges, who smacked a pair of triples and a double and drove in three runs. Trace Kuberski had a single, a double and two RBIs, and R.J. Sholar finished with three singles and two runs knocked in. Stallons also added a single and a pair of RBIs.

On Friday, Trigg fell victim to a tough second inning in a 12-7 loss at Murray.

The ‘Cats led 1-0 after the first inning, but the Tigers plated seven runs in the second and three in the third to take command of the game.

Sholar was the losing pitcher for Trigg, striking out two and walking three in two innings. Bridges also pitched two innings, striking out two and walking four.

Alex Sadler hit his first home run of the season and added a double to lead Trigg’s offense. Sholar and Cameron Sumner each had a single and a double.

In the first of two games Saturday at Marshall County, Trigg lost a close one 14-13 to the Marshals.

Both teams had offensive explosions in the first four innings, after which the score was tied 12-12. Marshall scored a run in the fifth that was matched by Trigg in the sixth.

With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, the Marshals blooped a pair of singles into right field and won the game on a solid single by the next batter.

Hunter Allen struck out three in the final three innings for Trigg and earned the loss. Hunter Smillie started and went three innings, striking out four and walking three.

Allen, Smillie, Bridges and Andre Wright each drove in two runs for Trigg, while Stallons and Sadler each added a pair of singles.

In the second game Saturday, the ‘Cats lost 4-3 after a late-innings comeback by Ballard Memorial.

Trigg led 3-0 after the fourth inning, but the Bombers plated two runs in the fifth and sixth innings to drop the ‘Cats.

Sadler, who pitched six innings, struck out three and was saddled with the loss, hit his second homer of the week in the contest. Stallons had three singles, and Sholar, Allen and Bridges each had a pair of hits.

Trigg was set to host Fort Campbell on Tuesday (results unavailable at press time) before playing Thursday at Todd County Central and hosting Madisonville-North Hopkins on Friday. The ‘Cats will play at 1 p.m. Saturday against Paducah Tilghman at Brooks Stadium before traveling to the Oldham County Tournament in Louisville next week.
