The Marshfield Lady Jays once again got off to an early lead by pouncing on the Lady Pirates in the first two innings taking a 5-0 lead. From there the game seemed to be under control until Branson made it close by scoring 4 runs in the top of the fourth. The score remained 5-4 til the Lady Jays got some insurance runs in the bottom of the 6th, making the final score 7-4.
Ashton Worth got her second start in 2 days and the Jays defense retired the first 9 Pirate batters in a row. Worth struck out 8, walked 1, allowed only 3 hits in 7 innings pitched.
Offensively for the Jays:
Baderdeen singled, reached on an error, and scored twice.
Gourley sacrificed, reached on a fielder’s choice twice, and scored.
Hannah Keeth singled and reached on an error.
Kleeman, Crowley, Bertoldie, and Jones also scored for the Jays.
Next up is the Morrisville tournament Friday and Saturday. Friday night the ladies play at 6:15. The second round game will be Saturday at 11:45 a.m. We hope to bring that one to you "LIVE".
