Trigg County used some timely hitting and a strong bullpen to beat Todd County Central 7-4 Saturday in Cadiz.
Sophomore Trevor Cortner was inserted into the leadoff spot and responded with three hits and two stolen bases. Darrin Brown had two hits and two RBIs, while Micah Brown had two hits and two runs scored.
Todd County scored first when Austin Rager walked and later scored on an RBI single by Trevor Henderson.
Trigg answered in their half of the first when Cortner singled and scored on Riley Stallons' triple. Darrin Brown followed with an RBI single to put Trigg ahead 2-1.
Todd added two runs in the second and another in the third when Rager tripled and scored.
Trigg took the lead with four runs in the fourth inning on consecutive singles by Savion Radford, Micah Brown, and Cortner.
Will Allen scored a run with a fielder's choice, and Darrin Brown added an RBI single to center.
Trigg scored their final run in the sixth inning when Micah Brown singled and scored on a hit to left by Jake Terrell.
Two days after being limited to one hit by Carlisle County, the Wildcats busted out for 11 hits.
Trigg's bullpen of Radford and Terrell combined to pitch four and a third innings of one hit baseball, allowing one hit and striking out six. Radford got the win, and Terrell retired all nine batters he faced for the save.
The win was Trigg County's ninth straight over the Rebels (1-11).
