Lady Eagles continue to roll through district play
The Milano Lady Eagles continue to roll through District 27A play, as they hosted Snook on Tuesday night and run ruled them in four and a half innings 19-6.
Cashlyne Blake tossed the win for the Lady Eagles, going four innings and fanning three Lady Jay batters.
Milano (11-6-1, 3-0) had 19 hits on the night as well. They scored three runs in the first, five in the second, six in the third and five more in the fourth.
Snook opened the game with four runs in the first but didn’t cross home plate again until the fourth when they scored two.
Kelly Wadlington was four for four on the night as was Emily Overall who had four runs batted in.
Elizabeth Holt slammed a two run homer in the bottom of the third inning over the centerfield fence.
Blake hit a triple and a double to help her own effort.
Also connecting for doubles were Naomi Graham, Keely LaGrone and Overall (two).
The Lady Dogs improved to 1-1 in District 26A play on Tuesday night, defeating Bartlett 13-0.
Thorndale sits at 7-12 on the season.
Against Bartlett, pitcher Mary Leopold fanned nine Lassie batters to take the win. She was also two for three at the plate with three runs scored.
Heather Remmert had a big night at the plate, going three for three with two doubles and a triple.
The Lady Dogs have had some personnel changes since the beginning of the year, but have adjusted and are ready to make a run at a postseason spot.
“I think we have all of the pieces put together now. I think we will be in the thick of the playoff hunt, we just have to put together some good solid games and we will be in good shape,” head coach Lance Betak said.
In their district opener on March 11, the Lady Dogs fell to Holland 9-2. Mary Leopold absorbed the loss.
Thorndale had seven hits on the night, but committed six errors.
Shelby Anders and Danielle Pedroza were both two of four at the plate. Peytyn O’Campo went two for three.
“We hit the ball well but right at them and we could not put a big inning together. We left 12 men on base. That killed us,” Coach Betak said.
