Aberdeen 20, Shelton 4

Aberdeen had a big day at the plate to earn a 20-4 victory over Shelton in a 2A Evergreen Conference game on Wednesday in Shelton.

The Bobcats (8-1, 3-0 2A Evergreen) put up plenty of crooked numbers, scoring four runs in each of the first and fourth innings and scored 11 runs in the top of the sixth to earn a mercy-rule victory.

The top of the lineup did a ton of damage for Aberdeen. The Cats 1-5 hitters went a combined 14-for-24 (.583), scored 13 runs, had 11 RBI and belted five extra-base hits.

Two of those extra-base hits came in the form of home runs.

Starting pitcher/first baseman Lilly Camp belted a two-run shot in the first inning while first baseman/pitcher Annika Hollingsworth led off the fourth with a solo shot, her fifth round-tripper of the season.

Hollingsworth finished with four hits in the game, pushing her average up to .615, while Camp had three hits and drove in four runs.

Leadoff hitter Zoe Vessey also did her fair share of damage, scoring four times with two doubles in the Aberdeen rout.

Eleven different batters collected a hit in the game for Aberdeen.

Camp moved to 4-1 this season with the win, allowing no runs or hits with a walk and seven strikeouts in three innings pitched to lower her ERA to 0.95.

Hollingsworth gave up four runs – none earned – on four hits with a walk and nine strikeouts in three innings of relief.

Aberdeen faces Tumwater in a battle of first-place teams at 4:30 p.m. on Friday at the Bishop Athletic Complex in Aberdeen.
