Lexington lost its second straight game in a 13-12 loss to Cameron. The loss wasted a huge comeback by the Lady Eagles. Also wasted were two home runs by Meghann Wrinkle. Lexington was down 10-4, but rallied with seven runs in the sixth inning to take an 11-10 lead going into the bottom of the sixth inning. The Lady Yoe also rallied this time, scoring three runs to retake the lead 13-11. Lexington tried once again to rally, but fell one run short.

Lexington took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first as Meghann Wrinkle launched a massive blast over the left centerfield fence. Cameron scored four in the bottom of the first as they parlayed two hits and multiple Lexington errors, to take the lead.

Lexington tied the score in the top of the fourth, as Bailey Reynolds reached on a fielder’s choice. Mackenzie Brown singled and both runners advanced on an infield out. Courtney Robertson singled both runners home with a solid single. A wild pitch and a single by Kasey Smith tied the score.

Cameron retook the lead in the bottom of the fourth. A pair of singles, an error, and an infield ground out with a run down, got two runs. Three more in the fourth made it 9-4 and a solo homerun by Kausian Wells in the fifth made it 10-4.

Then came the Lexington sixth. Robertson led off with a single. Smith followed with a single. Madison Bexley doubled both home. Kassie Prew followed with a single and Chelsea Nadeau walked. Brown singled home a run and Wrinkle emptied the bases with a three-run shot over the fence. Bexley scored on a ball that bounced back to the screen.

Cameron tied the score on a home run. Regaining the lead came on a double, a single, a single, and another single.

Bexley walked to lead off the Lexington seventh. A ground out, and a passed ball got her home. Nadeau singled with two out, but could not score.
