Holy Names 9, Bainbridge 5

The Metro showdown between ranked, unbeaten teams saw a total of 24 hits and 10 errors (five by each team), so it wasn’t real pretty. But No. 9 Holy Names got the early bragging rights over No. 3 Bainbridge (and should move up considerably in next week’s 3A top-10, barring a meltdown the rest of the week).

Shelby McCannell (3-for-4) and Cara Lohman (2-for-2) led the Cougars, while Erin Kinney went 3-for-3 with a double for Bainbridge.
