Fort Hill 1
CUMBERLAND — Kadi Cosgrove limited Fort Hill to four hits and one run and the Sentinels errors paid dearly for their four errors during HOPE for Hyndman’s 4-1 win Friday afternoon at Washington Middle School.
Cosgrove had a pair of singles as well as earning the win with four strikeouts in a complete game. The Hornets finished with seven hits, and none of the runs they scored were earned.

Fort Hill had four hits and Emma Bauer finished with two of them, both singles. The Sentinels took advantage of six Cosgrove walks to get runners on base almost every inning, but could never get the hit they needed.
Sierra Minnick struck out six, walked no one and allowed no earned runs while getting tagged with the loss.
“The season is a long journey and we haven’t gotten out to the start we would have liked, but the girls have played as hard in the four games that we’ve lost as they did in the win,” Mike Bittner said after his team dropped to 1-4. “These girls battle to the end of every game and it’s because of them that I’m sure we be in the thick of things at the end of the season.”
Fort Hill will play Southern at home on Monday at 4:30.
