Lexington’s Lady Eagles were beaten by the Academy Lady Bees 7- 0 Tuesday night. The game was delayed in starting from about 6:15 to 8:15 by lightning that moved through the area. The lightning delay did not keep the two teams for playing inspired ball the first four innings. Academy got one unearned run across in the second to take a 1-0 lead. Three more runs came in the fifth and sixth innings each for the final score. The loss leaves Lexington in fourth place just behind Cameron. Cameron comes to Lexington Friday April 13th for what appears to be a win or stay home game for the playoffs.

Madison Bexley got Lexington’s first hit, in the top of the second inning. Bexley advanced to second on the error by the Lady Bee third baseman. A wild pitch that did not get that far away from the catcher caused Bexley to get thrown out at third trying to advance.

Lexington got two hits back-toback in the fourth innings when Mackenzie Brown and Courtney Robertson singled. A fielder’s choice and a pop fly ended the threat.

The Lady Eagles loaded the bases in the top of the seventh with two out. A grounder to third ended the game on a force out.

Academy out hit Lexington 9-4, which combined with the five Lexington errors gave the Lady Bees plenty of offense. The four Lexington hits were spaced out except for the two in the fourth.
