Falcons Over Bobcats

Falcons Play a Game!

After almost one month of poor weather and scattered practices, the Lady Falcons were able to step onto the field for their first regular season game.

Sydney Miller took the mound for the Falcons and delivered a first pitch strike to MacDonough, the lead-off hitter for the Bobcats, and the game was underway. First pitch strikes would be the trend for Sydney for the majority of the game as she threw 22 first pitch strikes out of 29 total batters.

The top of the first inning went smoothly for Miller with only four batters coming to the plate. A deflected ball in the infield was the only hit of the inning. In the bottom of the first, the Bobcat's pitcher (Foley) was feast or famine. She retired three Falcons on strikes, but also gave up five hits (four consecutive) as the Falcons put up four runs on the board. After back-to-back singles by Savannah Yale and Taylor Wooten, Logan Wood hit a laser off of the right-center field fence for a double; scoring Yale and Wooten. Sydney Miller followed with a single, scoring Wood. Her courtesy runner, Olivia Wingler scored later on a single by Kayla Shore.

The Falcons gifted a run in the second inning by allowing the first two batters to reach (HBP, error) before Kluk squeaked a single down the third baseline to score the lone run for the Bobcats on the night.

Sydney would face the minimum in the third and fourth innings to hold the lead at 4-1 entering the bottom of the fourth. Brooke Hardy got things started by working a walk from Foley. Mitchell, Yale and Wooten would also receive walks as the rain seemed to impact the pitcher's control. That brought up Logan Wood with runners in scoring position and a chance to break the game wide open. With nowhere to put her, Foley challenged Wood and paid dearly for her earlier mistakes. Wood decided to test the durability of the left-center field fence as she all but knocked it down with a line drive. The Falcons pushed its lead to 7-1.

Sydney closed out the final three innings strong with two strikeouts in the seventh to earn the win. The Falcon offense tacked on two more runs to win 9-1.

Next up for the Falcons is the Reagan Raiders on Friday.

Savannah Yale

Solid

Savannah Yale moved into the number 2 spot in the Falcons' order last night in place of injured outfielder Mallory Choplin. She did an outstanding job of getting on base and moving base runners with her two hits and walk.

Way to pick up a teammate, Savannah!
