Lady Ram Roller Coaster Loss

It was a classic. It was the Agony and the Ecstasy, then the Agony, again. Then it was Great Expectations that just fell short. All in all, it was an Odyssey as Shelbyville Moulton softball lost to Altamont in the bottom of the 7th, 23-22.

Spectators should have taken dramamine before the roller coaster ride that took almost 3 hours on Monday at Forest Park.

Visiting Altamont scored four runs in a long first half-inning, sending ten players to the plate. That was the early agony. However, Moulton didn’t fold on the opening hand. They came for four runs of their own in the bottom of the 1st, sending nine batters to the dish. It was a new game in the 2nd inning, but it already felt like the 4th inning.

Shelby then hunkered down with Kayla McCabe on the mound and the Ram defense making plays. They held Altamont scoreless in the 2nd and 3rd. Then Shelby got offensive, tatooing the ball and the opposing pitcher, sending 10 batters to the plate and scoring six runs to go up 10-4. That was the ecstasy.

Altamont started to chip away in the 4th as the Ram defense cracked, cutting it to a 2-run lead, 10-8. Shelby got two runs back and led 12-8 at the start of the 5th. Altamont scored one run and seemed to be regaining their footing as the Rams let things slip.

In the top of the 6th down 12-9, Altamont started hitting the ball . They sent 14 batters to the plate and vaulted past Shelby with a 10-run rally. Shelby was down again, 19-12. That was the recurring agony.

In the bottom of the 6th, Shelby dug deep and responded. They sent 12 batters to the plate and had a 7-run rally to knot the score at 19-19. After starting the season 1-3 with some lopsided losses, Shelby had great expectations of going the distance and getting a hard fought win.
