Moulton by the numbers, 15

Moulton softball was stuck on the number 15, either by feast or famine, until Saturday. They opened the season losing to Maroa, 15-2. Moulton then beat Ramsey in a flip-flop of fate, 15-3. On Thursday, fate flip-flopped again as Moulton lost to Clinton, 15-1. They finally got off the number 15 on Saturday, losing to Meridian, 11-1.

The Rams didn’t get much going offensively against Clinton. They only managed two hits and they didn’t come until the 5th inning with time running out.

Sydney Trainor and Savannah Marty had back-to-back hits to start the bottom of the 5th. A fielder’s choice a K and a ground out ended the game, but Marty was able to score and put Shelby on the board.

Four of the seven Clinton batters in the 1st reached base and three scored. Shelby went in order in the 1st. Three of six batters in the Clinton 2nd reached base and two scored for a 5-0 lead. Shelby went in order in the 2nd.

Shelby pitcher Kayla McCabe and the Ram defense was able to retire Clinton in order in the 3rd. The first two batters reached base, but were also out on the base paths. Shelby went in order again in the 3rd.

Clinton had six of eight batters reach base in the 4th. Four of them scored for a 9-0 lead. Shelby went in order in the 4th.

The first four batters in the Clinton 5th reached base. With one out three more reached base and six of the seven base runners scored for a 15-0 lead. That’s when Trainor and Marty tried to start a 5th inning Moulton rally, to no avail.
