Amato’s Walks off With Win 10-9

On a great night for softball, the Amato’s Majors hosted Pleasant Hill Embroidery. Abbey Murrell took the mound for the home team pitching the first two innings and looked very sharp. Murrell’s line was 2 walks and 5 strikeouts with no runs allowed. The bottom of the 1st saw leadoff hitter Mary Farnkoff lace a double into centerfield. After stealing 3rd base and the next two batters being retired, Murrell had an RBI single platting the first run of the game later scoring on Chelsea Hughes double to the outfield. The bottom of the 2nd, Lindsay Kelley drew a free pass, stole second and third then scored on a passed ball to make the score PHE 0 Amato’s 3.

Emily Jeffords toed the pitching plate next the next two innings. Witching well, had a little trouble finding the strike zone consistently. PHE were able to score 9 time on 7 hits, 6 walks while collecting 2 strike outs. The Amato’s Girlz scored 2 more runs in the bottom of the third on an RBI single by Anna Driscoll and a throwing error by the defense bring the score to 9 to 5 in favor of Pleasant Hill Embroidery.

Chloe Gorey took the mound for the home team the next two innings facing 7 batters and only allowing one base hit thanks to the sharp fielding of Grace bailer who made two plays down the third base and making strong throws to first base retiring the batters.

The bottom of the 5th found PHE starter find a little control trouble allowing 5 walks and a base hit before being relieved and 4 earned runs charged to her tying the game at 9 apiece. The bottom of the 6, leadoff batter Jamie Dillon fouled off a pair of pitches before working a walk, then stealing second base. Grey up next dropped a base hit into the middle of the infield on a fly ball and took second base putting runners at 3rd and 2nd with no outs. Murrell then hit a 3-1 pitch into left field to plate the winning run.

Game notes: Emily Jeffords making a bare hand grab of a ground ball then throwing out the running at first was AWESOME. Emily Taggart almost catching a ball lined above her head that she got a glove on and almost got and RBI single. Lindsey Kelley, Abbey Murrell each had 2 base hits. Grace Bailer scored twice and had 2 stolen bases. Tonights game saw no errors for the Green and gold, and their first walk off hit of the season.
