Game Summary

In a battle of Wildcats on Tuesday afternoon, Ethel Walker defeated Cheshire Academy 6-5. The game was well-played by both teams, with Walker’s jumping on Cheshire 2-0 in the bottom of the first inning. Cheshire struck right back in the top of the 2nd, however, scoring 3 of their own to grab a one run lead. Walker’s, not to be outdone, scored 3 in the bottom of the 2nd to take a 5-3 lead.

From there, pitching and defense took over, as the teams scattered just 3 runs over the remaining 5 innings after scoring 8 in the first two. Cheshire scored one to cut the deficit to one run, but Walker’s scored in the bottom of the 5th, getting much needed insurance to take a 6-4 lead. After a leadoff triple in the top of the 7th inning, Cheshire sacrificed the runner home, and Walker’s was able to retire the next two Cheshire batters, earning a 6-5 victory.
With the win, Walker’s moved to 7-1 on the season.
