MORAVIA — Moravia took care of business on Wednesday night defeating Moulton-Udell 13-4 and 14-0 in a Bluegrass Conference doubleheader.

After leading 2-0 for the first three innings, the Moravia offensive would explode for four runs in the fourth, three in the fifth and four in the sixth to run away with game one.

The Mohawks’ top four batters did the brunt of the damage as they accounted for 10 hits and nine RBIs. Isabel Hanes and Mikayla Fritz each had three hits and two RBIs while Jessica Self finished 2-for-4 with four RBIs.

Anaya Keith got the start in the circle and the win, pitching all seven innings while giving up four runs, three earned, on eight hits with two walks and four strikeouts.

Moravia then wasted little time getting their bats going in game two as the Lady Mohawks brought across seven runs in the first inning on account to six walks, a RBI single by Destiny Nathaniel and a two-RBI double by Ronnie Cormeny.

Three more runs in the third and another four in the fourth would end the game by run rule in fourth inning.

The Lady Mohawks drew 12 walks while Cormeny drove in another two runs. Fritz, Keith, Destiny Nathaniel and Emilee Howard all had one RBI.

Self would go 2-for-3 at the plate with a walk and two RBIs while dominating on the rubber. The senior would pitch four hitless innings with six strikeouts.

These two will meet again in Moravia in the first round of regionals in a couple of weeks.

Moravia (15-11) are back on the field on Thursday at 6 p.m. when they battle Orient-Macksburg (7-16) on senior night. Moulton-Udell (3-13) will return home to face No. 13 Twin Cedars (24-3) on Thursday at 6 p.m.
