SOFTBALL LADY WILDCATS START 2014 SEASON

BY WINNING NEW HAVEN TOURNEY CHAMPIONSHIP

 

The Montgomery County R-2 Lady Wildcats Softball team had a successful beginning to the 2014 season, as they won all 3 games they played in the New Haven Tournament on August 23 and won the tournament championship.  It is quite possible that this is the first tournament championship ever won by a Lady Wildcats Softball team.  If that is not correct, it certainly is the first one they have won in many years.

 

In the First Round game Montgomery County defeated Hancock (out of the St. Louis area) 15-0, as Sophomore pitcher Corryn Hill threw a 3-inning no hitter.  In the Semifinal game they defeated St. James 16-1.  Then in the Championship game they came from behind to defeat Linn 6-3.  Linn is the team that ended the Lady Wildcats 2013 season in the Missouri District Tournament Championship game, so this was quite an exciting win for the Lady Wildcats.

 

HANCOCK GAME

 

The Lady Wildcats batted first in this game and wasted no time taking control, as they scored 9 runs in the first inning.  They loaded the bases with the first 3 batters, as Shelby Miles singled to start the game, Miah Klekamp walked, and Hill reached base on a Hancock error.

 

Miles scored on a walk to Anna Ford.  Then Klekamp, Hill and Ford scored on a triple by Jordan Fischer to make the score 4-0.  The Lady Wildcats loaded the bases again, as Cayleigh Lively and Sydney Queathem reached base on walks. 

 

With the bases loaded the Lady Wildcats scored their fifth run, when Taylor Lauer was hit by a pitch scoring Fischer.  Lively scored the sixth run on a ground out by Abby Bartlett.

 

Batting for the second time in the inning, Miles was walked which loaded the bases again for the Lady Wildcats.  Queathem was forced out at home on a ground ball hit by Klekamp, but Lauer scored the Lady Wildcats seventh run of the inning on a walk to Hill.

 

Anna Ford followed that with a single, which scored Miles and Klekamp.  This gave the Lady Wildcats a 9-0 lead before Hancock ever got to bat.  As was mentioned previously in this report, Hill threw a no-hitter so Hancock never scored.

 

In the second inning, 5 of the first 6 Lady Wildcat batters reached base on a walk.  The first 2 batters (Lively and Queathem) scored on walks to Miles and Klekamp.  Bartlett, Miles and Klekamp all scored on a double by Ford, who then scored on a double by Fischer to give the Lady Wildcats a 15-0 lead.

 

The Lady Wildcats did not score in the top of the third inning.  However, as Hancock did not score in the bottom of the third the game ended because the “Mercy Rule” (a 15-run lead at the end of 3 innings of play), and the Lady Wildcats started the tournament and the 2014 season with an easy win.

 

The individual offensive stats for the Lady Wildcats were as follows (listed according to the batting order):  Miles 1 hit, 3 runs scored, 1 run batted in/RBI; Klekamp 3 runs scored, 1 RBI; Hill 1 run scored, 1 RBI; Ford 2 hits, 2 runs scored, 5 RBIs; Fischer 2 hits, 1 run scored, 5 RBIs; Lively 2 runs scored; Queathem 1 run scored; Lauer 1 run scored, 1 RBI; and Bartlett 1 run scored, 1 RBI.

 

Hill pitched all 3 innings for the Lady Wildcats and earned the win.  She allowed 0 runs, and 0 hits.  She struck out 3 Hancock batters and walked 1.

 

ST. JAMES GAME

 

The Lady Wildcats batted first in this game also, scoring 3 runs in the first inning, 3 more in the second inning, and then 10 runs in the third inning.  Meanwhile, Hill and the Lady Wildcats defense held St. James to only 1 run in those 3 innings, and the game ended because of the “Mercy Rule” and a Lady Wildcats 16-1 win.

 

Miles was hit by a pitch to start the game.  She went to second on a single by Klekamp, and then scored on a 1-out single by Ford.  Klekamp scored on a single by Fischer, then Ford scored on a fielder’s choice ground ball by Queathem to give the Lady Wildcats a 3-0 lead.  St. James scored its only run of the game in the bottom of the first inning to make the score 3-1.

 

In the second inning, Klekamp and Hill reached base on singles.  Ford followed that with a 3-run home run shot to give the Lady Wildcats a 6-1 lead.  After holding St. James scoreless in the bottom of the second, the Lady Wildcats exploded for 10 runs in the top of the third inning to put the game away.

 

With 1 out, Miles reached base on a double and Klekamp reached base on a SJ error.  Miles scored on a single by Hill, and Klekamp scored on a double by Ford to make the score 8-1.  Fischer walked to load the bases, then Hill and Ford scored on a single by Lively to make the score 10-1.

 

A walk to Queathem loaded the bases again.  Then Hope Birkner (Courtesy Runner for Fischer) scored on a single by Lauer making the score 11-1.  This was followed by 4 consecutive walks with the bases loaded, which led to runs scored by Lively, Queathem, Lauer and Bartlett to make the score 15-1.  Miles scored the last run on a sacrifice fly ball hit by Ford, making the final score 16-1 (SJ did not score in the bottom of the third and the game ended).

 

The individual offensive stats for the Lady Wildcats were as follows:  Miles 1 hit, 3 runs scored, 1 RBI; Klekamp 2 hits, 3 runs scored, 1 RBI; Hill 2 hits, 2 runs scored, 2 RBIs; Ford 3 hits, 3 runs scored, 6 RBIs; Fischer 2 hits, 1 RBI; Birkner 1 run scored; Lively 3 hits, 1 run scored, 2 RBIs; Queathem 1 run scored, 1 RBI; Lauer 1hit, 1 run scored, 1 RBI; and Bartlett 1 hit, 1 run scored, 1 RBI.

 

Hill pitched all 3 innings for the Lady Wildcats and earned the win.  She allowed 1 run (earned), on 2 hits.  She struck out 2 St. James batters and did not walk any.

 

LINN GAME

 

This game was much different than the first two games, as the Lady Wildcats did not score in the top of the first inning.  Then Linn took advantage of a single, a walk, and a Lady Wildcat error to score a run in the bottom of the first to take a 1-0 lead.

 

Neither team scored in the second inning, but the Lady Wildcats took their first lead of the game by scoring 2 runs in the top of the third inning.  The Lady Wildcats loaded the bases to start the inning, when Bartlett walked, Miles was hit by a pitch, and Klekamp singled.  Bartlett was forced out at home on a ground ball by Hill, but with 2 outs Miles and Klekamp scored on a single by Fischer to give the Lady Wildcats the 2-1 lead.

 

The scored remained that way until the bottom of the fourth inning.  Linn took advantage of 2 Lady Wildcat errors, a passed ball, and a single to score 2 runs and retake the lead at 3-2.  However, the Lady Wildcats didn’t let down and came right back with 3 runs in the top of the fifth inning to take a 5-3 lead.

 

With one out, Hill doubled and then scored on a double by Ford to tie the score at 3-3.  Ford went to third base on a passed ball, and then Fischer walked and stole second base.  They both scored on a single by Queathem to make the score 5-3. 

 

The Lady Wildcats added a run in the top of the sixth inning when Miles singled, and eventually scored on a single by Hill.  Hill and the Lady Wildcats defense held Linn scoreless in the fifth and sixth innings, and the Lady Wildcats won the game and the Tournament Championship 6-3.

 

The individual offensive stats for the Lady Wildcats were as follows:  Miles 1 hit, 2 runs scored; Klekamp 1 hit, 1 run scored; Hill 2 hits, 1 run scored, 1 RBI; Ford 1 hit, 1 run scored, 1 RBI; Fischer 1 hit, 1 run scored, 2 RBIs; Queathem 1 hit, 2 RBIs; and Lauer 1hit.

 

Hill pitched all 6 innings for the Lady Wildcats and earned the win.  She allowed 3 run (0 earned), on 2 hits, and 3 Lady Wildcat errors.  She struck out 7 Linn batters and walked 1.

 

Congratulations to the Lady Wildcats on winning the Tournament Championship and a successful start to the 2014 season.  Best wishes for continued success, as you go through the rest of the season.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SOFTBALL LADY WILDCATS DEFEAT HERMANN 17-2

IN FIRST HOME GAME OF THE SEASON

 

Just two days after winning the New Haven Tournament, the Lady Wildcats played their first home of the season last Monday, August 25.  They hosted Hermann, and defeated the Lady Bearcats 17-2.  This improved the Lady Wildcats’ record to 4 wins and 0 losses.

 

The Lady Wildcats also had another game last Thursday, August 28, against Silex in an Eastern Missouri (EMO) Conference game.  However, that game was played after this report was written (due to the early report deadline because of the Labor Day holiday weekend).  A report on that game should be in next week’s Standard.

 

HERMANN GAME

 

Neither team scored in the first inning, but the Lady Wildcats scored 5 runs in the bottom of the second inning and never looked back.  Anna Ford started the inning with a double, and Jordan Fischer was hit by a pitch.  Ford scored on an errant throw by Hermann on a ball hit by Sydney Queathem to make the score 1-0.  Hope Birkner (Courtesy Runner for Fischer) went to third base and Queathem went to second base on that same throw.

 

Birkner and Queathem both scored on a single by Cayleigh Lively to give the Lady Wildcats a 3-0 lead.  Lively went to second base on a Hermann error, and reached third base on a single by Abby Bartlett.  Lively scored on a sacrifice fly out by Miles, and Bartlett eventually scored on a single by Klekamp to make the score 5-0.

 

The Lady Wildcats then scored 7 more runs in the bottom of the third inning.  Ford and Fischer started the inning with singles, but Ford was forced out at third on a ground ball hit by Queathem.  A single by Lauer loaded the bases.  Fischer and Queathem scored on a single by Lively to make the score 7-0.

 

The Lady Wildcats loaded the bases again, when Bartlett reached base on a Hermann error.  Lauer and Lively scored on a single by Miles, then Bartlett and Miles scored on a double by Hill.  Hill scored on a single by Ford, and the Lady Wildcats led 12-0 after 3 innings.

 

In the top of the fourth inning, Hermann scored 2 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks, to make the score 12-2.  However, the Lady Wildcats scored 5 runs in the bottom of the fourth to take a 17-2 lead, and end the game because of the “Mercy Rule” (15-run lead after 3 innings of play).

 

Arien Roden (subbing for Queathem) started the inning with a walk, which was followed by a walk to Birkner (subbing for Lauer).  Roden scored on a single by Lively making the score 13-2.  After a walk to Bartlett, Birkner and Lively scored on a double by Miles to make the score 15-2.  Bartlett scored on a double by Klekamp, and Miles scored on a double by Hill to give the Lady Wildcats a 17-2 lead and ending the game because of the “Mercy Rule”.
