CAMBRIDGE CITY — If the there’s ever a need to calm down her battery mate, Savannah Blevins knows she’s earned the right tell Taylor Mercer to simply calm down. After catching Mercer for three years on the Eastern Hancock varsity softball team as well during numerous summer games, the two have become a very successful pair.
“I can look at her and say, ‘Hey, relax, you got this,’” Blevins offered shortly after she and Mercer limited the opposition to eight hits.
Tuesday night in a Class 2A Sectional 41 Quarterfinal tilt against Centerville, there wasn’t any need for couples’ therapy. The EH offense provided all the resolution necessary, coming up with 14 hits as Eastern Hancock throttled Centerville 12-3.
