From Herald Staff Reports
Friday night may have been rather cool compared to some of the temperatures we’ve seen this spring but a few local baseball and softball teams made sure to try and keep their bats hot.
Here’s a brief rundown of what you might have missed in Friday night’s prep sports action.
Panthers 13, Rangers 3: It was a rough night for the Forest Park baseball team at home against Daviess County (Ky.) on Friday evening.
The Rangers were only able to rack up four hits as they struggled to bounce back after giving up seven runs in the second inning.
Caden Scherer was the losing pitcher on the mound for Forest Park.
Rangers 7, Bears 5: The Forest Park softball team was victorious in the opening game of the Evansville Central Invitational as they recorded a victory over the host Bears.
Forest Park scored at least one run in the third, fourth and fifth innings to take control of the game. Ali Welp, Lydia Hauser and Allyson Werner all had multiple hits for the Rangers while Welp and Hauser both drove in two runs each.
Werner recorded her eighth victory of the season on the mound.
Patriots 6, Hornets 1: In the first game of the Daviess County (Ky.) Tournament in Owensboro, Heritage Hills defeated Hancock County (Ky.) after trailing early.
The Patriots found themselves down 1-0 after four innings of play but used three-run fifth and sixth innings to pull ahead for the win. Heritage Hills had three home runs in the victory — Lauren Caswell had two and Brianna Quinn added another. Caswell and Quinn were both perfect at the plate, 4-of-4 and 3-of-3 respectively.
Emma Eubank was the winning pitcher on the mound for Heritage Hills.
