BENNINGTON – When you score 22 runs on 22 hits in two games you would think a win would be part of the deal, but unfortunately defensive woes kept the Inman softball team from winning on Friday as they lost both games of a road doubleheader at Bennington, 13-9 and 23-13.
In GAME ONE, the game was tied at 2-2 going into the bottom of the fourth when Bennington put up three runs and after Inman pulled back within one in the top of the fifth, Bennington scored seven runs to take a commanding 12-4 advantage. The Lady Teutons then put five runs on the board in the top of the sixth to pull back within three before Bennington added one more in the bottom of the inning and then shut down the Inman bats in the seventh to get the 13-9 win over the Lady Teutons.
Seven defensive errors did not help the pitching by the Lady Teuton’s Emma Brown as she threw 129 pitches and struck out nine in the loss.
At the plate, Savannah Smith went 3-for-4 with a double, a pair of runs batted in and scored three times to lead the Inman offense. No other Lady Teuton had more than one hit though Joee Hurley also hit for a double.
Both teams put six runs on the board in the first two innings of GAME TWO, before Bennington took a 12-7 lead after four with two runs in the third and four in the fourth.
The Lady Teutons put four on the board in the top of the fifth to pull within one run before Bennington added two more in the bottom of the inning and while Inman put two more on the board in the sixth to make the score 14-13, Bennington poured nine runs across in the bottom of the sixth to take the misleading 23-13 victory.
Once again the Lady Teuton defense caused issues as they committed 11 errors which lead to 12 unearned runs recorded against Emma Brown and Halee Konrade who split time on the mound for Inman.
While Alyssa Johnson went 3-for-3 and Kambrey Woods went 3-for-4, the big hits for the Lady Teutons came on doubles by Emma Brown and Halee Konrade.
