Macks Creek outlasts Springfield Central 25-15
It was a wild one in Camden County as the Macks Creek Lady Pirates and the Central Lady Bulldogs combined for 40 runs, 31 hits, 13 walks, and 11 errors in a 25 - 15 Lady Pirates win in five innings on Thursday night.
"This was definitely a wild one," Macks Creek Coach Jason Trusty said. “I kept telling the girls after each inning that we needed to take what runs Central had scored and get them back. We just kept continuing to push back and were able to get a lead and hold it.
“I’m glad to see us continue to swing the bats well,” he added.
Macks Creek banged out 19 hits en route to scoring their 25 runs. Each spot in the Lady Pirate line up produced a base runner and a run scored. Jesse Willis led the bats and fell a home run shy of the cycle, collecting a two-RBI-double, an RBI-single, and a triple as well as scoring twice. Hannah Roofener singled once, doubled twice, scored three runs, and had five RBIs of her own as well.
Macks Creek's Jesse Willis picked up her first career varsity win in relief. She worked the final 1.3 innings, allowing three unearned runs on one hit while striking out one and walking three. Bethany Schmidt started and worked the first 3.2 innings allowing 12 runs, five earned, on 12 hits while striking out two and walking four batters.
Macks Creek (4-2) was scheduled to visit Hermitage on Friday night before hosting Wheatland on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.
