Braves sweep season series from Aces

Logan Elm scored the first seven runs of a Mid-State League Buckeye Division game on Friday on its way to a 9-3 win over host Amanda-Clearcreek.

Taylor Fowler doubled to center with one out in the second, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly to center courtesy of Peyton Richendollar to put the Braves ahead 1-0.

Sadie Binkley helped her own cause when she led off the third with a solo homer over the left field fence.

Logan Elm went ahead 3-0 in the fourth when Taylor Fowler singled to right, was sacrificed over to second by Tia Fowler and scored on a single to right by Richendollar.

The Braves doubled their lead in the fifth to make it 6-0.

Logan Elm loaded the sacks with no one out when Jacie Clifton was hit by a pitch, Ryleigh Wolfe singled to left and Taylor Fowler reached on an error.

The second A-C error of the inning on a ground ball hit to shortstop allowed Clifton to score.

Wolfe came around to score on a passed ball and a single to center by Binkley allowed Taylor Fowler to score.

Binkley led the Braves by going 4-for-5 with two RBI and two runs scored, Taylor Fowler was 2-for-3 and scored twice and Wolfe went 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

Alex Martin was 2-for-4 with an RBI and Haley Robinson went 2-for-3 and scored to pace the Aces.

Binkley scattered seven hits and three runs (one earned) in a complete game win. The freshman right-hander walked a pair, hit a batter and struck out eight.

The Aces (6-11, 3-8) host Bloom-Carroll on Saturday to continue league play and the Braves (13-8, 7-6) entertain the Bulldogs on Monday.
