Boggess tosses a gem as Winfield blanks Shady Spring, 5-0

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Maci Boggess tossed a four-hit shutout as Winfield advanced to the winners bracket final of the Class AA state tournament with a 5-0 win over Shady Spring.

Boggess did not walk a batter and struck out 13. The Tigers did not put a runner in scoring position after the first inning.

Winfield scored the only run they would need in the bottom of the first when Evie Loyd came home on a run-scoring groundout from Kennedy Dean.

The Generals added another run in the third inning when Dean drove Georgia Moulder home with a single. Winfield (25-7) broke the game open in the fifth by adding three more runs. Dean and Chloe Kimble came through with RBI doubles while Lola Baber added another run on a groundout.

Dean went 2-for-3 with three runs batted in.

Paige Maynard went the distance in the circle for the Tigers (20-5). She struck out seven batters. Olivia Barrett had two of Shady’s four hits.

Winfield will face Oak Glen in the winners bracket final Wednesday evening. Shady Spring meets Herbert Hoover in an elimination game at 4:45 p.m.
