Raiders Stun Rams



A&M scored two runs in the 4th to take a 2-1 lead. Taylor Jordan beat out an infield slap hit. She went to 2nd on a wild pitch and stole 3rd. After Kayla Brachbill caught a pop up, Rachel Townsend singled into right and Jordan scored to tie the game, 1-1.

Rachel Friesner followed with a single. Morgan Damery hit into a fielder's choice and Townsend scored for a 2-1 lead.

Shelby answered in the top of the 5th. Mackenize Durbin led off the inning with a single. After Lexee Smith threw a strikeout, Cloe singled. Brachbill followed with an RBI double and Moll grounded out, but drove courtesy runner Courtney Williams home to reclaim the lead, 3-2.

Reliever Abbie Watton clamped down on A&M in the 5th, with back-to-back strikeouts and a pop up to Rachel Fox at 3rd. Shelby could not take advantage in the 6th, but they might have. 

With two outs Fox launched a ball to the warning track in left and the fielder couldn't get it. She rounded 2nd and went for 3rd. A good relay gunned her down dead to rights and ended another shot at a Ram insurance run.

Down one in the bottom of the 6th, A&M stepped up. The top of the order was up and Jordan hit another single and stole 2nd. Colby Callan singled and Jordan went to 3rd. With the tying run at 3rd and plenty of speed, Callan stole 2nd without a throw.

With no outs and two runners in scoring position, Rachel Townsend doubled deep in the left-center gap, scoring two runs for a 4-3 lead. 

Friesner reached on a bobbled ball at short. With one out, Allison Kresin reached on a fielder's choice as Friesner was out at the plate. Mikah Maples was hit by a pitch. A ground ball ended the Raider rally.
