It was a windy day. Lana Carpenter was Southern’s starting pitcher and Imani Matthews was the catcher for the first two or three innings. Today was their debut. Lana walked a few batters and had two strike outs. Imani did a great job behind the plate. I think I just found my backup pitcher and catcher. Makayla Lanham relieved Lana as pitcher and finished the game.
Meade went up by 8 in the 3rd inning. Southern battled back chipping at the lead to tie it in the 5th. Southern had 12 hits in the game and 4 of them were bunts to reach the base on a safe call. Great base running and taking advantage of their errors to take the lead by 2. In the top of the 7th, Makayla Lanham walks the lead-off batter and hits the next batter. Calli Clements gets the grounder and throws to Jayda Washburn at third for the first out. With runners on 1st and second, a grounder is fielded by Casey Kopitskie and she attempts to tag the runner going to second forcing her to run out of the baseline and then throws to first (Imani Matthews) for the double play. Game over and Southern wins by 2. Great job by all.
This game is dedicated to two of our fallen Lady Bulldogs. You will always be a part of our team. Keep working hard and I expect your return next year.
