The hits kept coming Tuesday for the Verona Area’s softball team.

The host Wildcats banged out 19 hits en route to a 14-4 win over Janesville Craig in a Big Eight Conference game that ended in the sixth inning due to the 10-run rule.

Craig (3-4) tied the game at 4-4 in the top of the third, but Verona responded with four runs in the fifth and six more in the sixth.

“Playing the same team two nights in a row is tough,” Craig coach Kristen Worm said. “We ran out of tricks in our bag.

“They started hitting, and we just couldn’t stop them. We just came up a couple innings short tonight.”

Presley Stanley and Abby Humphrey had two hits each for Craig.

The Cougars host Sun Prairie on Friday at the Youth Sports Complex.
