Carpenter drives in four, leading Neosho over Joplin

Abbie Carpenter drove in four runs Tuesday night for the Wildcats.

JOPLIN, Mo. – The Neosho Wildcats top the Joplin Eagles Tuesday night 9-4. Sophomore Abbie Carpenter drove in four runs for the Wildcats.

“I’ve been in a slump, so it’s good to be back,” Carpenter says, “It’s a win, so that’s good. Our hitting could have been better, and our defense for sure.”

“She finally hit some balls hard, and we know she can do that,” says Neosho head coach Catie Cummins, “She’s been crushing it in the cage, it just hasn’t come to fruition on the field. She’s done a great job, and for her to kind of feel it on the field and for it to be seen is a big deal. We’re really happy for her.”

Neosho is now 14-6 on the year.
