Lady Tigers Close Out Regular Season With 4-0 Win Over Schuyler County
Abi Feeney grabs the final out of SCR-Iís win over Schuyler County to close out the regular season.
After nearly a week off due to Mother Nature, it took Scotland County's bats a little while to come to life, but the hitting arrived just in time to send SCR-I to a 4-0 win over Schuyler County on Monday night in Lancaster.
The Lady Tigers closed out the regular season on a high-note courtesy of a big sixth inning.
Freshman Abi Feeney started the rally with a bunt single. She scored on an RBI triple by Miranda Holland to break a 0-0 deadlock. Randi Slaughter followed with an RBI single. She stole second base and came in to score on a base hit by Bethany Rader to make the score 3-0.
The Lady Tigers tacked on an insurance run in the seventh inning. Shaye Wright crushed a double down the third base line. She scored on an RBi single by Holland to make the final score 4-0.
SCR-I was silent on offense through the first five innings, with freshman designated hitter Maddie Brassfield delivery the only two hits of the contest.
Rader did not need a whole lot of offense. She allowed just one hit through the first three innings. The senior hurler got some help from her defense as well. Slaughter made a great diving stop near second base to rob Schuyler County of a hit.
The Rams did not have a runner reach third base until the seventh inning. Rader walked the first two batters but came back to work out of the jam and secure the shutout.
She allowed no runs on just four hits while walking two and striking out seven.
Holland went 2-4 at the plate with a run scored and two RBIs while Brassfield finished 2-3.
