Rogers Rips Lexington’s Ladies
In what was supposed to be the game for first place, Rogers put a 10-0 whipping on Lexington. The game had turned out to be a warm up game for the state playoffs due to Lexington’s loss to Cameron on Friday night that handed the championship to Rogers.
Rogers took the lead in the opening frame with two unearned runs. Both reached on errors and moved around the bases on balls that went to the screen or got away from the catcher. Rogers scratched out two singles later in the inning but the damage was done. Two more runs in the third inning for Rogers on a single, a walk, stolen bases, and a fielder’s choice.
Rogers finished off the game with six runs in the top of the fifth inning. The runs came on three hits, two Lexington errors, and two walks, with a fielder’s choice added to the mix.
Lexington managed but two hits in the game. Meghann Wrinkle had a one-out single in the first inning and Tayllor Lagrone had a lead off single in the bottom of the third inning. Lexington mounted one charge in the fourth inning. Hailey Jatzlau walked with one out. Mackenzie Brown reached on an error by the first baseman. Some chancy base running did not pan out as Jatzlau was tagged out and a force out ended the mini rally.
The loss coupled with Academy’s win over Thorndale put Lexington in a tie with Academy for second place. The two teams played off Monday positioning in the state playoffs.
