U14 Fillies rally to win in 8 innings
Rebounding from a five run deficit, the Medina U14 Fillies rallied to nip the Sandlot Saints 9-8 in 8 innings Tuesday in a Metro Girls Softball League game at Vets Park.
Trailing 6-1, the Fillies bats came alive in the bottom of the fifth inning as a double by Micaela Erway singles by Grace Cook and Brandi Guild and a triple by Morgan Allis led the charge scoring 7 runs plating, Erway, Ashlee Howell, Erin Dunham, Tessa Boyce, Cook, Guild, and Brooklyn Brown.
Sandlot was able to tie the game at 8-8 by scoring single runs in the 6th and 7th.
The Fillies then got out of a jam in the top of the eighth on a double play by Howell and Camri King. Cora Payne had struck out the first batter.
Keeping the momentum, the Fillies then scored the game winning run in the home half of the eighth on a hit by Lacey Kenward which drove in Allis completing the comeback win.
Sandlot had scored 3 quick runs in the first inning and 2 more in the second for an early 5-0 lead.
In the circle, Kenward had 3 strikeouts in 4 innings, and Payne got the win striking out 6 Saints in her 4 inning of work.
“It was a hard fought game and our girls didn’t give up and were rewarded for all their hard work,” said Fillies Coach Matt Maynard.
