GRATIOT - Monticello sophomore Becky Nelson didn't have time to even think about the Ponies' struggles with runners in scoring position in the sixth inning. The Ponies were 0-for-9 hitting with runners in scoring position entering the sixth, but Nelson changed all that with a two-run single that gave Monticello a 5-1 lead. "I was a little nervous. I didn't know where they were," Nelson said of the runners. "I just wanted to hit it and get it in play." The Ponies (3-0, 1-0 Six Rivers East) weren't done as freshman Jordyn Kubly came through with a clutch two-out, two-run single that closed the door on the Ponies' 7-1 win over Black Hawk Monday.
