M. Ogden hit a triple with the bases loaded in Zadnik’a 5-5 tie against Franklin Square 1. Pitchers M. Bleeker and M. Bronzino worked the mound and did very well. Most of the girls are getting some good hits in and getting on the bases.
Ogden again had what would have been 3 triples but held up at second due to a pulled leg muscle and had 5 RBI’s in a 14-11 win over Stewart Manor. Bronzino and Ogden pitched and did a really good job. Sara P caught the entire game and did amazing. She had a couple of tries at picking off the runners but they were a split second quicker to the base. M. Bleeker hit a single and a double. Emily Locker had 3 singles and Mia had 4 singles. Sara P had 2 singles and Vanessa and Brianna each had a single as well. Brianna stole one base and Katie Hop attempted to steal home and was tagged out with a glove to the face, it might not have hurt as much if she would have been safe! As always, it was an exciting game and the girls had fun!
