|From Staff Reports|
April 9, 2004 -- EDGEWOOD -- Como-Pickton could manage only two hits Thursday afternoon, and Edgewood got the only run it needed in the first inning on its way to a 1-0 victory.
Taylor Moss and Kelli Harmon singled in the fourth, but the Lady Eagles couldn't muster another hit. Twelve CPHS batters struck out.
Christy Hunt (9-5) went the distance, giving up three hits, one unearned run and striking out two.
Edgewood led off its half of the first inning with a single, and two runners reached scoring position on an errant throw off a sacrifice bunt. Another single plated the game's only run.
There is now a tight battle for the second and third playoff positions between the Lady Eagles and two other teams. Grand Saline still has a firm grasp of first place with only one district loss.
CPHS (11-5, 7-3 District 14-2A) will try to get back on track at home Tuesday against Scurry-Rosser.
