Carter belts 2 homers for KCC

ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. - Randyn Carter belted a pair of home runs for the  fourth-ranked Kirkwood Eagles Monday in Kansas.

One of Carter's homers came in a 3-2 loss to 19th-ranked Cowley  County. The other homer came in an 18-6 romp over Cowley in the second  game of their doubleheader.

The split left Kirkwood with a 13-4 record for the season.

Erin Hocker was the hard-luck losing pitcher for the Eagles in the 3-2  loss in the first game. All three of Cowley's runs against Hocker were  unearned thanks to three errors.

Carter hit a solo home run in the tight defeat. Lauren Kuch and Rachel  Stewart had two hits.

Kuch went 3-for-5 with four RBIs in the 18-6 victory in Game 2. Carter  was 3-for-3 with another solo homer. Stewart was 3-for-4 and drove in  two runs. London Jackson was 2-for-3 with three RBIs.

Taleah Smith, Stewart, Lauren Klaahsen, Jayme Finn and Shelby Hulsebus  drove in two runs. Autum Barthelman scored four runs. Carter scored  three times. Kuch, Jackson and Stewart scored twice.

Jackson, Stewart and Klaahsen joined Carter in the home-run parade in  Game 2. Stewart collected two doubles.

Bradee Bouman was the beneficiary of all that offense and cruised to  the victory after Kirkwood built a 17-1 lead in the top of the fourth.
