Friday, September 19, 2008

SHS netters log first two wins of the season Thursday

BROSELEY -- The Sikeston Lady Bulldogs rallied back from a three-run deficit against the Twin Rivers Lady Royals in the top of the seventh inning to tie the game at four and then won the game two innings later.

Emilie Martin hit an inside the park home run to left field giving Sikeston a 5-4 lead in the ninth inning.

"It all stared in the seventh inning with the three runs we scored," Sikeston head coach Tiffany King said. "We finally starting hitting there and then Martin, who is one of our leaders and is the only starting senior on the varsity squad, had a nice hit to win it for us."

Martin finished with the home run and two RBIs. Sarah Hopson added a hit, an RBI and a run while Krystal Henson chipped in with a hit as well. These were the only hits that Sikeston had during the game.

Hopson pitched all nine innings giving up four runs (two earned) on eight hits and no walks. She also struck out four batters.
