Lady Rams beat 3A Columbia


Jensen Cloe got hold of a 1-2 pitch and raced around to 3rd for a triple. She was left on base, but the Rams had a lead.

In the top of the 5th, Columbia finally got on the board against Moll and the Rams. Moll KO’d her 7th victim, but Tochette got enough of a pitch that it jumped off the bat for a triple. A sac fly scored the Columbia 3rd baseman, 2-1 Rams. Moll hit the #9 batter, but threw out the #1 hitter on a comebacker to the mound.

The Rams were still holding on to the tenuous lead heading into the 7th, but things would get interesting.

In the top of the 7th, the Columbia shortstop, Bastien, led off with a single. Moll threw her ninth strikeout, but the runner on 1st stole 2nd. and 3rd. Fox threw out the next batter, but an error at home allowed Bastien to score and tie the game, 2-2. The next batter walked, but was thrown out trying to steal 2nd, ending the inning.

Shelby had a shot to get the win in regulation in the bottom of the 7th. They took advantage of their opportunity.

Madison Boone led off with a single and Kayla Brachbill made it two in a row. With two on and no outs, Moll was walked. Weilbacher struck out the next batter. Then Brandy Smith laid down a perfect, game-winning bunt as Boone sped home for the 3-2 walk-off win.
