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


Somerset —

“We started to get passive and started to swing at balls that were out of the strike zone,” Mckee said. “We didn’t put our heads down when we got behind we stayed focused and pulled out the victory.”
In the sixth inning, the Lady Pirates went to work scoring three of their six runs on Pulaski. Berea first got on base when sophomore Kaylee Wilson made the error of misjudging the ball and allowed a single. Howard walked the next batter.
The seventh batter was struck out, but because Blevins dropped the ball, the batter was able to safely make it to first and load the bases. With the bases loaded, Berea was able to score three runs off two singles. The Lady Pirates took the lead at the top of the sixth 6-5.
When the Lady Maroons got a chance to regain the lead with their turn to bat, they did just that. Brock was first up and hit a ball that was fielded by the third baseman and Brock was out at first.
Madden was next up and Berea walked her, her curtsey runner was Emily Rodgers. The Lady Pirates also walked Lorman immediately after Madden. While Bryant was up to bat, Berea’s catcher over threw the pitcher and the ball rolled to the shortstop who caught Rodgers not paying attention and off the base, she was tagged out.
Bryant was able to get a double and knock Lorman home for the tie. Davis was the Lady Maroons ninth batter but she was able to single and send Bryant home taking the lead back from Berea 7-6.
In the seventh inning, the Lady Maroons just had to hold onto their lead, which they were able to do. Howard walked the first batter of the line up but was able to strike out the next. The third batter of the inning was the Lady Pirates clean up batter. Earlier in the game she had hit a homerun, she this a ground ball to Wilson at second who threw her out at first. Howard struck the next batter out to win the game7-6.
The Lady Maroons advance to 3-1-1, a tie coming from Wayne County when the game was called because of darkness. Pulaski will be retuning to action Tuesday, traveling to Bardstown.
