Trigg County's trip to Indiana to play three games over the weekend turned into nothing more than a scenic drive and a return trip home.

All three games were cancelled due to rain. They will not be made up.

The Wildcats were scheduled to play Mount Vernon Friday night and follow that with a Saturday doubleheader against New Harmony.

"We got to our hotel and were actually leaving to go to the game when the (weather) sirens sounded," said Wildcat coach Jeff Embrey. "A big storm blew through and cancelled that. We were called Saturday morning at 6:30 and told four inches fell in New Harmony overnight so we packed up and came home."

Mother Nature is the only one who has been able to silence Trigg County's bats in the past week.

During their two game winning streak, the Wildcats are batting .523 with 16 extra base hits.

Wildcat pitchers have also allowed just four earned runs in those two games.

Trigg County brought out the big sticks to crush Crittenden County 14-2 in six innings April 27 at the Complex.

The Wildcats banged out 17 hits and ended the game on Ben Wadlington's walk-off grand slam in the sixth inning.

Trigg County jumped ahead 5-1 in the first inning as 11 batters went to the plate.

Kyle Allen, Corey Greenman, and Evan Roberts had RBI singles, and Jordan McNichols was hit with the bases loaded to drive in another run.

Wadlington and Justin Butts led off the second inning with consecutive doubles to plate another run for 6-1 lead.

Allen added an RBI double in the fourth inning, and McNichols followed with an RBI single as the Wildcats took a 9-1 lead.

Crittenden scored a run in the sixth inning before the Wildcats closed out the game with five runs in their half of the frame.

Josh Cain had four hits and scored three times for the Wildcats, who also got three hits and five RBI from Wadlington.

Allen, Greenman, and J.R. Davis each added two hits for the Wildcats, who improved to 3-10 on the season.

Bryce Cotton picked up the win on the mound, allowing three hits and two earned runs over four-and-a-third innings. Jared Joiner pitched the final two innings, giving up no hits and striking out two.

The Wildcats play at Crittenden County Thursday night and will play in a tournament at Fort Campbell Friday and Saturday.
