Trigg County improved its 2010 record to 12-14 last week, sandwiching a 12-5 loss Thursday at Hopkins County Central with a 21-0 thumping of Dawson Springs last Tuesday and a 6-5 victory over Todd County Central on Monday.

Against Dawson, the Wildcats smacked 14 hits in the game and plated 12 runs before the Panthers recorded the first out of the fifth inning. R.J. Sholar was the winning pitcher, going three innings and striking out five. Hunter Allen led Trigg at the plate with two doubles and three runs batted in, while Nick Allen had drove in three runs with a single. Alex Sadler finished with a double and a single, Andre Wright had a double and Trace Kuberski, Dillon Dawson, Ryan Russell and David Wease each had hits.

Thursday, Trigg struggled at the plate against Hopkins Central, finishing with only three hits on the day. Hunter Allen drove in three runs with a single, and Russell had a hit. Sholar had Trigg’s other base knock and was the losing pitcher.

Monday, Trigg wore pink jerseys in honor of Mother’s Day and did their Moms proud with a squeaker over the Rebels. Todd outhit the ‘Cats 9-7, but Zack Bridges pitched a complete game, striking out 10 and walking only two. Bridges also had an RBI-triple. Wright and Jared Stallons each drove in runs, while Sholar and Hunter Allen each had two hits.

Trigg was set to play host to Christian County on Tuesday (results unavailable at press time). The ‘Cats play Wednesday at Crittenden County. Thursday’s game at Caldwell County was canceled to prevent Trigg from playing on too many consecutive days as the schedule continues Friday against Russellville (Trigg’s final home game of the season) and Saturday at Webster County. The ‘Cats then play Monday at Union County and Tuesday at St. Mary in Paducah.
