Hamilton tops Polson in eight-inning slugfest

 • 

POLSON – Sophomore Kloie Nye’s walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning gave Hamilton a 12-11 win over Polson in a quarterfinal matchup Thursday at the Class A state softball tournament.

The Broncs (21-5) will battle Libby (18-5) in a championship bracket semifinal Friday at 1 p.m. at the Polson Softball Complex. In the other 1 p.m. semifinal, Frenchtown (20-1) will face Billings Central (14-7) after the Broncs made quick work of Havre (10-11) on Thursday afternoon, 9-0.

Polson made it out of the first round with an 8-5 win over Laurel while Libby took a 2-0 decision from Butte Central in its tournament opener.

In other first-round games, Livingston edged Anaconda, 5-4, and Havre topped Miles City, 7-5. Billings Central earned its semifinal date with Frenchtown behind a 1-0 decision over Livingston in a quarterfinal.

Taylor Gologoski hit a three-run home run to give Hamilton a 9-8 lead in the bottom of the sixth. Tayler Reynolds followed with another tater to give the Broncs a 10-8 advantage.

Day pitches Central to 1-0 victory at State A tourney

POLSON -- Molly Day fired a two-hitter and Billings Central began play Thursday at the State A softball tournament with a 1-0 victory over Livingston.

Day, a junior right-hander, struck out seven and walked none. Pinch-runner Josie Snyder, a freshman, scored the game's only run on a passed ball in the second inning.

"They played well. We played well," Central coach Coleman Rockwell said. "It was a good scrappy game."

In the second, Addy Daubert got things started for the Rams with a double.

Snyder, who entered the game to run for Daubert, then moved to third on a bunt by Allison Walter and scored on the passed ball.

The Rams, 14-7, will now play defending state champion Frenchtown, 20-1, on Friday at 1 p.m.

"It will be a good test for us, for sure," Rockwell said. "I'm looking forward to it, and I think the girls are, too. We'll see where it takes us."

Against Livingston, the Rams managed just three hits.

"Our defense definitely stood out, and Molly pitched a good game," Rockwell said. "They put the ball in play a lot. We just made a lot of plays."

In other first-round games, Laurel fell 8-5 to Polson and Miles City was beaten by Havre 7-5 to fall into loser-out games on Friday.

Laurel will face Livingston at 9 a.m., followed by Miles City vs Belgrade at 11 a.m.

Laurel owned a 5-1 cushion over Polson before the Pirates tallied three runs in the fourth and three more in the fifth to take control.

The Locomotives were limited to four hits. Polson had eight.

Miles City, which is making its first-ever appearance at state, was leading 5-4 over Havre until the Blue Ponies' Dani Wagner belted a 3-run home run in the top of the sixth inning.

In addition to her winning blow, Wagner, a sophomore, also smacked a 3-run double in the third inning to wipe out an early 2-0 deficit.

The Blue Ponies are playing at state for the first time in five years.

State tournament play will continue through Saturday.

Great pitching leads Loggers past the Belgrade Panthers 2-1

An ace performance by Hannah England hoisted Loggers to a 2-1 win in seven innings over the Belgrade Panthers on Thursday at PSC.

Loggers got the win thanks in large part to Hannah's dominant, 12-strikeout performance. Hannah allowed one earned run, three hits and no walks over seven innings.

Loggers staved off the Belgrade Panthers as the Belgrade Panthers were unable to match Loggers down the stretch.

The Belgrade Panthers scored one run in the sixth on an RBI double by Jordan Branch. Still, the Belgrade Panthers couldn't catch Loggers.

Judy Taylor was the game's losing pitcher. She lasted just seven innings, walked two, struck out none, and allowed two runs.

The lead stayed with Loggers after the fourth, when it scored one run on an RBI single by Auria Benefield

At Polson in a game between teams that share the same purple & gold school color scheme, the Lady Pirates drew first blood when Taylor Brackey opened the bottom of the 2nd with a double, scoring when freshman Ashley Benson hit into a routine infield play for an RBI.  Not to be intimidated, the Lady Locomotives responded in kind when pitcher Brianne Jones reached on a throwing error and would eventually score on a single by Kylie Goodson to even the tally at 1-1.  In the bottom of the 3rd, the Lady Pirates opened with a single by the top of their order, but her threat of reaching scoring position was negated by a fielder’s choice.   After an ensuing walk, the Locos turned a double play to send Polson back to the dugout empty.  Motivated by their defensive gem, the Locos placed two runners on board with one out.  Jones capitalized on the RBI opportunity by stroking a 2 run scoring double.  A single by Kylie Hergenrider put runners at the corners, with Kylie moving to second on a fielders choice to put two runners in scoring position.  Back to back errors by Polson would allow Laurel to extend the lead to 5-1.    Polson responded in their half of the inning by closing the gap to 5-4.  After an uneventful Laurel 5th, Polson retook the lead by plating a trio of runs to go up 7-5.  An insurance run was added in the bottom of the 6th to extend the margin to 8-5.  Laurel would threaten with a pair of runners in the top of the 7th, but the Lady Pirates wiggled off the hook by securing the win to advance against Hamilton.

stat spec scoring anomaly supplement
 
Top4th - infielder attempted to tag out runner after Goodson hit attempt, but missed when she evaded the tag, allowing her to reach base safely.  This evaluator scored the play as an error, whereas another more partial stat assessment scored the play as a hit.  All the fielder had to do was throw to first base.  Instead, they deviated from the routine expectation and the runner reached first base safely.  Can’t count such a play as a bonifide hit.
Btm5th - Polson’s Brackey hit ball just toward gap outside reach of third base infielder, who got a glove on the ball, but it glanced off the fielding attempt.  O  Understandably, one stat source scored the play as an error.  However, making the play would have been difficult in this evaluators assessment.  Benefit of the doubt goes to the batter, hence play scored as hit.
Laurel’s H.Maurer 0-1  had 3PA.  Stat scoring assessments varied.  One stat source listed her 0-3 on account of put-outs, but this evaluator and another stat assessment listed two of her at-bats as sacs on account of her successfully moving runners on base over with an executed hit.  Technically it may not have been a square up at the plate bunt, but this viewer considered them in the context of a variation of the slap-bunt variety.  

 

Four-run seventh dooms Copperheads at State A

POLSON — A three-run lead heading into the bottom of the seventh turned into a Copperhead nightmare Thursday during the first round of the Class A State tournament.

Livingston, a team that thrived on swinging at bad pitches after being ahead of the count for the first six innings, all the sudden resembled a team that earned the No. 2 seed in the Central in their final at bat. Starting with the top of the order, Livingston collected four of their 10 hits in the inning without recording an out, capping their comeback with a walk off RBI double by cleanup hitter Hailey Versland to shock Anaconda 5-4.

The tough loss spoiled a solid outing by freshman left-hander Michaela Courtright, a pitcher who emerged as an important cog in the Copperhead rotation after last week’s Southwestern A divisional.

The game plan for Anaconda was simple — make Livingston’s offense hit pitches off the plate. Courtright, who threw 112 pitches (58 balls, 54 strikes), mixed her speeds and pitches well enough to battle through what’s considered the most important stat with pitchers — first pitch strikes and working ahead in the count. Courtright threw just 36.7 first pitch strikes (19 balls, 11 strikes), but showed poise beyond her years battling back against the odds versus a solid offensive team.

After giving up a slap hit single to lefty leadoff Megan Megan Gibson to lead off the seventh, Courtright walked Jaccy Schleicher on four straight pitches. Instead of putting too much on the shoulders of the young hurler, head coach Dotsie Shafer elected to go to her junior pitcher Kristy Hayden in the closing situation.

Cassie Versland then hit a 3-2 pitch into left center scoring two to cut the Copperhead deficit to 4-3 with no outs. She advanced to second when a throw to the plate left a hole in the Anaconda defense. Still with no outs,  Shyann Mushrush, pinch-running for Versland, scored moments later when Meadow Ingram drilled a single back up the middle into center.

Again, not keeping the force by hitting the cut, Ingram advanced to second when the throw came in to the plate. Five-hitter Hailey Versland then dropped a double just outside the reach of a diving Lacee Moodry in left for the walk off, game-winning double.

Livingston pitcher Sierra Higgs scattered 10 hits in the complete-game win, throwing an economical 98 pitches (65 strikes, 33 balls). Hayden was tagged with the loss in relief.

Offensively, Anaconda pounded out 10 hits led by seniors Courtney Moodry and Sara Schaefer each going 3-for-4 at the dish. Lacee Moodry added two hits and Julia Peterson drove in two runs going 1-for-3 with a sacrifice.

The loss moves Anaconda into the Saturday morning loser out against Polson, who lost 11-10 in 10 innings to Southwestern A No. 1 seed Hamilton, at 11 a.m.

That game will be broadcast live on kana580.com
