Lady Bulldogs outlast Lawrenceburg

Scoreboard operators were busy Thursday, May 22, as the Batesville and Lawrenceburg varsity softball teams combined for 22 runs. The Lady Bulldogs eventually won the offensive battle 12-10 in seven innings, notes coach Jody Thomas.

There were 25 hits, including seven extra base hits. The game was back-and-forth heading into the sixth, with 11 lead changes.

The Lady Bulldogs finally managed to grab the lead after a strong sixth inning. They went up for good on a two-run double by Katie Thomas off No. 9, scoring Madison Meehan and Hannah Wintz.

Thomas racked up three RBIs on four hits for the team. She got the win for the Lady Bulldogs despite allowing 10 runs over seven innings. The pitcher struck out four, walked 12 and gave up eight hits.

Player No. 9 took the loss for Lawrenceburg. She allowed 12 runs in six innings, walked two and struck out nine.

The bottom of the second saw the varsity athletes take an early lead, 1-0. After Carissa Werner doubled, the Lady Bulldogs kept the pressure on Lawrenceburg pitching, as Meehan singled.

After a quick strike from Lawrenceburg, the Batesville team responded with three runs in the third. They scored on a two-run double by Hannah Putnam and an RBI double by Alyssa Dudley.

It didn’t take long for the Lady Bulldogs to respond as they scored four runs of their own in the fourth – an RBI single by Thomas, an RBI single by Rebecca Roell, an error, and an RBI single by Dudley.

The coach points out his team never surrendered the lead after the sixth inning. “The runs piled on, thanks to an RBI double by Madison.”
