Pulaski County slides by Berea, 7-6, after surrendering lead

Somerset —  

The Lady Maroons slid past the Lady Pirates from Berea 7-6 on Friday night, after giving up a 5-0 lead in the second inning.
“I was pleased that the girls didn’t give up and came back to get the lead again,” stated coach Kevin Mckee. “The girls have to start showing a little more heart! They almost let this one get away from them.”
Senior Sarah Howard was on the mound for the Lady Maroons. Howard was able the throw nine strikeouts in the victory. Berea had six errors in the loss but the Lady Maroons managed to have three of their own. Luckily, Pulaski’s weren’t as costly.
In the first inning, the Lady Maroons defense allowed no hits or base runners as Howard struck out two batters. The last batter hit a ground ball to first baseman Taylor Brock, who was able to make the easy play at first.
Unfortunately, the Lady Pirates also displayed good defense by striking out Pulaski’s leadoff batter Jessica Foster. Berea also got out the next two in the line up by fielding their hits and making the out at first.
In the second inning, the Lady Maroons kept up their strong defense, Howard and crew still didn’t allow any base runners.  When Pulaski stepped up to the plate they were at the strong part of their line up with their “clean up batter” up first.
Makayla Blevins was the number four batter for the Lady Maroons but she was thrown out at first. Brock was next, and she hit a ball to the third baseman who made an error and over threw the first baseman. Brock was safe at first.
The next batter was Alyssa Madden and she popped one up to the left fielder. Junior Kelsey Lorman was next up, she singled off and error also. Batting sixth in the line up was Makayla Bryant who was walked. With two outs and bases loaded eighth grader Taryn Davis was up. With a full count on Davis, she patiently waited for the right pitch but was walked before she got it. Brock scored the first run for the Lady Maroons.
