  • McClish slam fuels Cats' win

    Seth Williams was already pitching a good game for the Wildcats last week against Williamstown.

    In five complete innings of work, he coughed up just five hits, struckout nine and allowed no walks in the first round of the North Central Kentucky Conference tournament.

    But Aaron McClish had a good day, too. McClish, was 4-4 at the plate, including a grand slam for extra flavor.

    That grand slam, a no-doubt shot to left field, came as part of a seven-run fourth inning that gave the Cats an 11-0 lead.
