    Special to The Sun

    In regular-season games this year the Taylor and Washington county softball teams were separated by one run in a two-game split. On Monday in Radcliff, in the first round of the 5th Region tournament, the two teams couldn’t have been farther apart.

    Taylor County used 16 free passes, served up by two Commanderette pitchers, and run-ruled WC 12-0 in five innings.

    The Commanderette’s 11-9 victory over Bethlehem last Monday put them in the 19th District championship game the following day.

    The bad news? They would be playing Nelson County, a ball club that has won the previous 18 district titles, and was looking to continue the streak.

    SCC Sports Information

    For one of his baseball teams during the eight years that he has coached at St. Catharine College, Luther Bramblett distributed shirts with the letters WTLG on the back. The meaning of the letters was unclear to the players until Bramblett decoded the message – Win The Last Game.

    But even with the message explained, it is a goal that very few athletes are able to attain. Bramblett’s 2009 squad did not get such shirts; but they are the first team in St. Catharine history to boast that they did WTLG.

    Things are heating up at Idle Hour Park as Little League baseball is well underway.

    The highlight of last week’s action was a no-hitter on May 11 thrown by 9-10 Red Sox hurler Thomas Bartley, who struck out 15 Marlins in a 10-2 victory. Michael Chastain had three hits for the Sox, including a home run.

    Also on May 11, the Cubs edged the Reds 1-0 in 9-10-year-old play. Steven Thompson got the win while D.T. Yocum took the loss.

    The Washington County Commanderettes used a nine-run rally to come from behind to beat the Bethlehem Banshees 11-9 Monday night to advance to the district finals on Tuesday.

    The win also assures them of a slot in the regional tournament.

    The Banshees took the early lead, going up 4-1 in the second inning. The Commanderettes added a run in the fourth as Meagan Spalding scored on a sacrifice by Olivia Thompson.

  • Season over for Commanders

    The season came to an end Tuesday night for the Washington County Commanders as they fell 7-4 to Nelson County in the first round of 19th District Playoffs.

    The Cardinals struck first with three runs in the top of the first, but WC answered with three of their own to tie it up after one inning.

    The game quieted down until the bottom of the third, when the Commanders loaded the bases and Fergus McCain scored the go ahead run on a passed ball.
