Shelby Drops Title Game

Sullivan was sharper out of the box and they used that to notch their first-ever softball regional title at Shelbyville on Saturday, beating Shelbyville, 5-3.

Sullivan jumped on Ram pitcher Torre Koontz on the first pitch. Only a great play by 3rd baseman Courtney Williams saved a run in the 1st. She went high to snag a high chopper down the line and threw to the plate to gun down the lead runner. Catcher Rachel Fox blocked the plate and got the tag. Koontz rang up the next batter.

Madison Boone was hit by a pitch in the Ram 1st and Kayla Brachbill singled, but three straight outs kept the game scoreless.

After Koontz threw her second straight K, Ram defensive troubles reared their heads. A hot into center field was mis-played and rolled to the fence. The next batter smacked an RBI-double. An error at shortstop allowed another base runner.

Instead of being out of having two outs and two runners on with no runs in, a single made it 3-0. Shelby went in order and Sully came back for more.

An error in right let a runner on in the 3rd. Brachbill threw two batters out, 2nd to 1st, but the runner on base scored as the next batter reached base, 4-0.

In the bottom of the 3rd, Lindsey Eigsti sparked a score with a lead-off double and went to 3rd on a passed ball. Boone lifted a sacrifice fly and Eigsti tagged and scored, 4-1. Brachbill and Fox singled, but were left on.

In the 4th, Sullivan added to their lead. Another error by the Rams was followed by a fielder’s choice and a Koontz K. However, Stewart singled and made it 5-0. Eigsti squeezed a fly ball to stop anymore Redskin scoring.

Maddie Holland and Brandy Smith singled in the 4th, but were stranded. Sullivan was stopped in the 5th and left the door open for a Ram comeback.
