The Washington County Commanderettes softball team didn’t quite have the game it wanted against the Hart County Raiders Friday, losing 13-0 after five innings.


Six runs by Hart County in the first inning very quickly put the Commanderettes in a big hole, and they were stifled on offense, unable to get runners into scoring position. Washington County didn’t get a runner to third base until the top of the fourth inning, and she was stranded there.

“Hart County has a good team,” said head coach Christy Baker. “It’s a disappointing loss, but we can’t dwell on it.”

Haylee Graves was the starting pitcher, and she worked three innings and took the loss. Trinity Baker recorded two strikeouts in relief.

Hart County dominated overall across the field, however, and successfully kept Washington County’s offense in check.

“We just have to move forward and keep getting better each week,” Baker said.

The Commanderettes’ next game is set to be against Bethlehem Thursday. The game is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. at Idle Hour Park.
