Boll Weevils ride fourth inning flurry to down Bobcats
The Inverness Boll Weevils used a big fourth inning to top the Bay Springs Bobcats by a 4-2 margin.
The Boll Weevils sent nine batters to the plate during the inning and collected two hits. They were helped by four walks and a hit by pitch in scoring their four runs.
The first three innings had been a pitcher’s duel between Jonathan Hicks of the Boll Weevils and Josh Smith of the Bobcats. Neither pitcher had allowed a hit although the Bobcats held a 1-0 lead courtesy of Austin Graham’s score. Graham (West Union)was hit by a pitch and wound up at third with one out. Graham scored on the RBI ground out to post the 1-0 lead.
The Bobcats scored a run in the bottom of the fourth as Harrison Hawkins scored on a JT Gaines (Myrtle) RBI single. That would be as close as the Bobcats would get as a ground out ended the inning with Gaines stranded on base.
Myles Steen (West Union) worked two innings of relief, allowing no hits while walking three and striking out five for the Bobcats. Gaines had the only hit for the Bobcats.
