Seven runs in the first three innings allowed
the LJHS Trojans to put the game away early.
A walk by Mackenzie Antoine (CEL) in the first inning, and a wild
pitch, a two-run double by Kayla Maly (WLB), an error and a
groundout by Chloe Laubenstein (LJHS) during the second inning
fueled the Trojans' offense early.
Brooke Kitner (CEL) racked up three RBIs on two hits for
the Trojans. She doubled in the fifth inning and
singled in the sixth.
The Trojans got the win thanks in large part
to Kayla's dominant eight-strikeout performance. She allowed
no earned runs on four hits and no walks over four innings.
The top of the first saw the Trojans take an
early lead 1-0. The Trojans' rally started
when Kerstin Osborne (LJHS) singled.
The Trojans tacked on another two runs in
the fifth. The inning got off to a hot start when Brooke Kitner
(CEL) doubled, plating Maddie Tanner (LJHS). That was followed
up by Kerstin's single, scoring Brooke Kitner (CEL).
The Trojans piled on three more runs in the
top of the sixth. Chloe doubled to start the inning.
LJHS improved to a 3-2 record with the win.
