Hinton defeats Harris-Lake Park on the diamonds
HINTON — The Hinton softball and baseball teams beat Harris-Lake Park in War Eagle Conference action Friday.
“We finished out the week strong with a win over H-LP,” Hinton softball coach Jennifer Jacobs-List said. “Case pitched a good game and we played solid defense to end a long week.”
The softball team won 8-1. Aubree Lake led the team with 3 RBI as she hit a double and also had a sacrifice fly in the game.
Jadyn Case hit three doubles and reached on a walk while Ashlyn Kovarna had a pair of singles for the team’s multi-hit games.
Case pitched the win with 12 strikeouts in seven innings. She gave up one run on three hits and two walks. Payton Reimers took the loss for the Wolves.
Hinton improved to 14-8 with the win. H-LP fell to 2-14 with the loss.
The Hinton baseball team won by a score of 9-7 although a pitch count violation gave them a forfeit win over the Wolves. Caleb Hemphill came on in relief to record one out, but was not on full rest after throwing 86 pitches in a game on Tuesday, resulting in the infraction.

Owen Eli had a single and double and Ty Ridgway added two singles for the other multi-hit games for the team. Eli finished with a 2 RBI along with Beau Cook.
Glen Carlson struck out 11 in 4 1/3 innings, but also gave up five runs, two of which were earned, on five walks, two hits and a hit batter. Easton Stusse struck out one while giving up two runs, one of which was earned, on a hit and a walk in 2/3 of an inning thrown.
