The Western Hills baseball team battled Anderson County for six innings Tuesday night, but the Bearcats pulled away in the final inning for a 9-3 win at WHHS.
"I think the layoff really hurt us," Western Hills coach Craig Fry said of the game. "It really hurt our bats today."
The Wolverines were playing for the first time since last Wednesday when WHHS defeated Frankfort High 16-10. Their game Friday versus Woodford County was rained out as was their game Monday versus East Jessamine.
WHHS had 15 hits in the win over FHS but was held to four hits against Anderson County.
"If anything, I'm glad we got this one in," Fry said. "I would have hated taking the field against Woodford County without getting this one in."
That district game versus the Yellowjackets is set for tonight at WHHS, weather permitting.
Anderson County finished with 10 hits Tuesday.
The Bearcats struck first, scoring a run in the second inning and two in the third.
Western Hills made it 3-2 in the third inning, scoring runs on a walk, an RBI double by Joey Wainscott, a fielder's choice and a base hit by Gary Thompson.
