Softball: Bush baffles Fannin Co. in Buford win
BUFORD -- The Buford softball team handled Fannin County 9-0 on Thursday in six innings in Buford.
The top-ranked Lady Wolves (11-0, 2-0 Region 7-AAA) scored three runs in the first inning and added five runs in the sixth to close out seventh-ranked Fannin.
Buford sophomore Bria Bush pitched her best game of the season so far, tossing a complete game (her sixth of the season), while giving up only two hits, with no walks, and a career-high 10 strikeouts. It was her third shutout of the year and improved her record to 7-0.
Bush also produced the game-ending hit -- a bases-loaded double that sailed over the head of the Fannin County left fielder, scoring three Buford runs.
Niki Cook also helped lead the Lady Wolves at the plate, going 2-for-2 with two runs scored, an RBI and five stolen bases. Baylee Sexton also went 2-for-4, with two runs scored and an RBI, while Remington Hasty was 1-for-2, with a double, two RBIs and a run scored.
Buford will travel to White County on Sept. 6.
