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


Somerset —

Pulaski returned to the top of the lineup with Foster, she hit the ball out to deep leftfield and managed to get a double out of it knocking in Lorman and Bryant. Emily Evans also doubled and Foster was able to score off the hit. Howard got the last out for the Lady Maroons, the score was 5-0 at the end of the inning.
In the third inning Howard struck out three batters but not before her and Lady Maroons gave up a run. Howard walked the eighth batter in the lineup. The ninth batter singled and when Berea returned to the top of the lineup Howard struck out the leadoff. The Pirates were able to double off an error by Davis and score a run. Howard ended the inning with another strikeout. Berea seemed to have fixed their problems defensively and ended the inning 5-1.
“In the second inning we were aggressive at the plate and we attacked the ball,” Coach Mckee stated. “It seemed like we thought after we got those five runs, we thought we didn’t have to work any more.”
In the fourth inning Pulaski started off by giving up a single run homerun. Their troubles didn’t end there, as two batters later the Lady Maroons allowed a triple. The base runner was able to score off a wild pitch. Pulaski got the next batter out. The Lady Maroons were not able to get anything done offensively as the first three batters of the inning all got out.
Pulaski returned the favor by getting out the first three batters of the fifth inning. The first two batters for the Lady Maroons got thrown out at first. Howard was able to single off a Berea error, curtsey runner for her was Riley Burton. Blevins ended the inning by hitting a pop fly to right field, and the score at the end of five was the score was 5-3.
