Devilettes dispose of Warren County
May 02, 2007 12:00 am
MCMINNVILLE — Lebanon defeated Warren County 5-1 Monday night, setting up a rematch of the Devilettes' 5-4, 12-inning Saturday triumph over Siegel tonight.
Meghan Maynard allowed one hit to the Lady Pioneers on Monday as Lebanon improved to 25-13 for the season and 8-3 in District 7-AAA. The senior right-hander struck out nine, walked two and withstood four errors by her teammates.
Lebanon jumped to a 4-0 first-inning lead before missing numerous opportunities to stretch the margin. The Devilettes twice left the bases loaded as they stranded 10 base runners for the evening.
"We got complacent," Lebanon coach Brad Rowlett said.
Missy Roberts ripped an RBI double, Maynard a two-run triple and Lauren Ludwikowski a run-scoring single in the first. Mallory Mason got a bases-loaded, two-out single in the seventh for Lebanon's final run.
Kelsey Blackburn had three of Lebanon's 10 hits. Roberts and Ludwikowski each racked up two hits each while Mason, Maynard and Lauren Carr collected one apiece.
The Devilettes dispensed of Siegel 5-4 in 12 innings Saturday at Baird Park in the makeup of a game rained out last Thursday.
"It could have gone either way," Rowlett said.
Maynard fanned 10 and scattered five hits in the victory.
Siegel went ahead 4-3 without benefit of a hit in the top of the 12th inning before Lebanon scored twice in the bottom of the inning. Maynard scored the tying run on a throwing error on Mason's sacrifice bunt. Ludwikowski crossed the plate with the winner on Carr's single over the second baseman's head.
Maynard led the way, knocking three hits for the Devilettes. Carr and Roberts each had two hits and Blackburn, Mason, Lacey Doak, Monica Maynard and Kenzie Fish had one apiece.
The Devilettes will bring a 25-13 record to Siegel tonight for a 6:30 p.m. season finale which will give Lebanon the No. 2 seed with a win. A loss would leave the teams tied and forcing a coin flip. But the worse LHS can finish is third, keeping the Devilettes out of the bracket with top-seed Riverdale.
The district tournament gets underway Friday at Oakland.
Mason drives in six runs, Morris shuts out Smyrna to set up MJ's battle with Wilson Central tonight
SMYRNA — Mt. Juliet took care of business Monday in an 11-0 makeup win over Smyrna, setting up tonight's battle for District 9-AAA runner up against Wilson Central.
Shelby Morris fired a five-inning six-hitter with a walk and eight strikeouts as Mt. Juliet, which had to cancel a game scheduled with Father Ryan to make up the Smyrna contest [which was rained out last Thursday], improved to 34-8 for the season and 9-2 in the district.
Mt. Juliet, Central and Hendersonville have the same district record, but the Lady Commandos own the tiebreaker. After the Lady Bears host the Lady Wildcats at 7 p.m. tonight at MJ League Park to settle second and third, both will play at home Friday in the opening round of the league tournament before going to Central next Monday. The tourney is double elimination all the way.
As for Monday's game, Caroline Mason drove in six runs on three two-RBI singles. Hannah Irwin added a pair of RBI singles while Shelby Barrett blasted a two-run triple in the six-run second inning.
