H.S. SOFTBALL: Central rallies past Lincoln County

RICHMOND — The Lady Indians used a late rally to pick up a third-straight victory.

Madison Central scored three times in the sixth inning and held on for a 3-2 win over Lincoln County Friday in Richmond. MacKenzie Wilder earned the complete-game victory, striking out seven, while not walking a batter.

“MacKenzie kept us in it,” Central coach Daniel Rogers said. “Then our bats came alive there late.”

Since opening the season with three-straight losses, the Lady Indians (3-3) have not lost.

Lincoln County scored once in the second inning and once more again in the fourth.

In the sixth inning, Katie Brock started the game-winning rally with a walk. Emily Frakes doubled and Summer Fleeman followed with a two-run double that tied the score.

After Wilder put down a sacrifice bunt, Fleeman scored the go-ahead run on a squeeze bunt by MacKenzie Humphrey.

Wilder allowed just five hits and stranded five runners.

Sarah Arthur was 1-for-2 with a single and a walk, while Brock was 1-for-2 with a walk and a run score.

Central is set to return to action April 9 at home against Southwestern.
