On Thursday, the Inman softball team tangled with Hutchinson Trinity and lost both sides of the doubleheader 22-18 and 19-3.
In game one the Lady Teutons came out with all cylinders firing at the plate as they scored 12 runs in the first three innings and held a 12-6 lead heading into the fourth. After adding six more runs in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings, it appeared to be all Inman with a commanding 17-8 advantage going into the sixth inning.
Then the wheels came off and Trinity poured across 10 runs in the sixth before Inman added a run in the sixth to make the score tied at 18-18 going into the seventh inning where Trinity added four more runs while holding the Lady Teutons scoreless to get the wild 22-18 win.
The game produced 40 runs, 33 hits, 20 walks and 12 errors.
For the Lady Teutons, Kambrey Woods, Cora Johnson, and Chesney Black all had three hits with Savannah Smith scoring four times and Emma Brown knocking across five runs thanks to a home run in the first inning. Both Alyssa Johnson and Savannah Smith pounded out doubles.
Emma Brown struck out 13 while working the mound and taking the loss for Inman.
The nightcap was all Hutchinson Trinity as they held the Lady Teutons to just one hit by Jolee Hurley. Hurley also pitched and took the loss.
The Lady Teutons are now 1-5 for the season as they get a week off before returning to the competitive diamond on Friday, April 14 on the road at Bennington.
