Rising Sun’s Bryce Kendrick:

After pitching a complete game, 7-inning victory over 4A East Central the night before, Sydney Pitts returned to the circle Thursday and threw a 2-hit shutout with 6 strikeouts against conference foe Switzerland County. Pitts, offensively, contributed 2 hits, 2 RBI, 2 runs and 2 stolen bases.

For a second straight game, Lindsay Montgomery knocked in 5 runs, this time on the strength of 3 doubles. She also had a pair of assists at third base.

Switzerland County has shown an ability to make a comeback on multiple occasions this season.  The Pacers made a late run against us in our first meeting.  I was pleased our pitching and defense didn’t let that happen this time.
