Arabians shake up lineup, top Eagles

PENDLETON — Pendleton Heights plated a pair of unearned runs in the first inning and stopped Frankton 6-4 in a varsity softball game here Tuesday.

Sarah Dixon, who had been hitting in the leadoff spot, dropped to the second slot and Delilah Wright moved to the top.

Wright reached base three times, twice with walks and scored all three of those runs. One of those times she reached base was on an inside-the-park home run in the second inning.

But the swap might have had an even more significant effect on Dixon. “Dixon is on fire,” said PH coach Rob Davis.

That’s not an overstatement. She had two doubles and a triple, drove in a run and scored one.

The Arabians’ six runs was more than the one run they plated against Frankton starting pitcher Kyleigh Garner, who limited PH to one run in a Madison County Tournament semifinal last month.

PH was helped by two errors from Frankton in the opening inning. It allowed the home team to score three times. The big hit was a two-run double by Jordan Dean.

“I don’t understand that we’re not ready to play,” said Frankton coach Jeremy Parker. “It is something about Frankton when we play Pendleton. I think everybody made at least two mistakes today.”

For three straight innings, the Eagles scored at least a run in each of those frames. In the second inning it was Frankton’s turn to make the most of a PH miscue. In the third inning Frankton cut the lead to 4-3 by scoring twice. Ashtyn Rastetter’s ground out scored Lexi Gray and Kaylee Irwin doubled home Gray.

The Eagles caught up with a run in the fourth against Madison Fowler, who was pitching in relief of starter Emily Morris. Sammie Kilgore walked. Garner singled and Clark tied the game with a bunt single to second.
