Lady Eagles Cage Lady Cougars
Lexington struck early as they scored three runs in the top of the first inning. Meghann Wrinkle led off with a walk. Mackenzie Brown reached on a fielder’s choice, as the Lady Cats tried to get Wrinkle at second base. Robertson singled both runners home for a 2-0 lead. Jorden Kelley, running for Robertson, scored on a sacrifice fly by Bailey Reynolds.
Three more runs came in the second. Chelsea Nadeau walked and Rachael Beard sacrificed her to second. Brown singled and Robertson blasted her three-run homer.
Jarrell scored three in the third to close to 6-4. Another run for Jarrell in the fourth made the score 6-5 Lexington.
Lexington added three more in the fifth without the aid of a hit. Robertson walked to lead off, as did the next batter, Kasey Smith. Madison Bexley hit a grounder to the second baseman. She tried to get Kelley at third to no avail. A passed ball allowed Kelley to score. The other two runs scored as Nadeau hit a grounder to second base that was mishandled.
Bexley scored the last Lexington run in the top of the seventh. She walked, stole second and third. She then scored on a wild pitch, as the Lady Eagles scored again without the aid of a hit.
Jarrell added two more runs to their total in the bottom of the seventh.
