Woodford stings Frankfort 10-2

By LINDA YOUNKIN State Journal Sports Writer Published:

Frankfort High's baseball team was looking for a few more hits and a little momentum Wednesday.

The Panthers got neither, and Woodford County came away with a 10-2 win at Capitol View Park. The game was a first-round contest in the Capital City Classic.

"Three hits. That's it right there," FHS coach Joe Peach said of his team's total. "When you're not hitting the ball it's hard to win.

"I'm kind of surprised," he added, "because over the weekend we had 12 hits on Saturday, 16 hits on Sunday, and 12 on Monday. Then three today."

Woodford County took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning on a home run by Chase Aitkin, but FHS threatened in the bottom of the inning.

Aaron Jones drew a four-pitch walk off Travis Clements, and Will Current followed with a single to put runners at first and second. Cam Howell then hit into a fielder's choice, forcing Current at second and sending Jones to third.

With runners at first and third and one out, Howell was picked off first for Frankfort's second out, and a strikeout ended the threat.
