Brandi Parks Falcon Bus

Updated on March 27, 2015

Miller on the Mound

Overshadowed

Brandi Parks will be all the rave around the watercooler on Friday morning for her shutout performance of the Forbush Falcons' offense that averages double digit runs per game. Parks struck out 16 Falcon batters and scattered three hits over seven innings of work. When a picture of her caliber executes like she did Thursday night, the only thing to do is just tip your cap and move on to the next day.

What may be overshadowed is the outstanding job Sydney Miller did on the mound for Forbush. Miller allowed one run on three hits over six innings of work. She struck out five batters, and only allowed three balls out of the infield all night.

The pitching duel between Parks and Miller gave the game a playoff-like atmosphere. The two teams battled on every play, but it was the Cardinals that managed to scratch home the lone run of the game.

The Falcons challenged in the bottom of the first inning with a deep fly out by Savannah Yale that was kept inside the park by the gusting wind. Taylor Wooten followed with a two-out double off the left center field fence. With a runner in scoring position, Logan Wood went down on strikes as Parks painted the outside corner.

It was the Cardinals turn in the bottom of the first inning. With one out, Bullard reached base on a swinging bunt out in front of the plate. Macemore tried to sacrifice Bullard over, but confusion between the Falcon fielders put two runners on base with only one out. Miller got Brandi Parks on strikes, but Johnson came through with a two-out hit to score Bullard.

The Cardinals would hold the one run lead the rest of the game as Parks used the strikeout to work out of trouble in the 5th and 6th innings. The Falcons put two runners on in the 5th inning with no outs, but could not get the hit to drive home a run. The Falcons put two runners on in the 6th inning, but struck out looking to end the threat.

Sydney Miller settled in after the first inning and only allowed two base runners the rest of the game. However, the damage was done as the Cardinals claimed the victory. Congratulations to the Cardinals on a well-played game.

Back to work, Falcons!

What Could Have Been?

Taylor Wooten was the most dangerous threat for the Falcons on Thursday night. In the first inning, Wooten lined a double to left field, but was stranded. In the fourth, Wooten drove a 2-2 pitch deep down the left field line for what appeared to be a game-tying home run. The Forbush dugout thought it wrapped around the foul pole, but the official saw it differently. After much debate the call stood, and Wooten returned to the batter's box. She was struck by the ball on the next pitch and again stranded on base. In the sixth, it was Wooten's turn with runners on base. Savannah Yale led off with a single. Wooten fought off several tough pitches, but took a called strike three.

That is pretty much how the night went for the Falcons. The home run/foul ball left a lot of fans wondering, "what could have been?"
