Amato's Clip The Cardinals

The Cape Cardinals started off strong, scoring 3 in the top of the first on hits by Penley, O’Connor and Pinnette with the Scarborough Amato’s Girls Majors scratching out one run. The 2nd inning was almost a mirror of the first thank to Lindsay Kelley laying out as SS preventing further runs scoring in the inning.

Abbey Murrell pitching for the Amato’s club, kicked into gear setting the Cardinals down 1,2,3 in the top of the 3rd. Jumping on that goose egg, the green and gold scored the inning limit of 5 runs on 4 base on balls and 4 hit batters.

Cape was not able to score in the top of the 4th and brought a new pitcher for the bottom half of the inning. Relief pitcher Pinnett for the Cape team was tagged with a bomb off the bat of Mary Farnkoff for a triple to lead off the bottom half of the 4th. Followed by three more hits in the inning, scoring only two thanks to good defense, that included a good relay to the plate to cut down a run at third base and a back handed “Brooks Robinson” like play at 3B by Penley to retire what looked like a sure hit for Grace Bailer.

After another donut in the top half of the 5th, the Amato Girlz weren’t content., with a leadoff walk by Kelley )her third of the day), she stole 2ND base, then scored on a double by Emily Jeffords. Emily Taggart, advanced Jeffords to 3rd on a fielder’s choice, then Ashley Imler connected for her first hit of the season driving in a run with the home team scoring 4 runs in the bottom half of the inning.

The Cardinals were able to score a run in the top of the 6th on a couple of dropped balls, but wasn’t enough to catch up. Final score Amato’s 13 Cardinals 7.
