Splendora vs Shepherd Round 2
April 5, 2014By Nate Perrone of Splendora High School
The sun was setting & the bright lights of Lady Cat Field told one & all, that is was time for softball. Splendora played host to the Lady Pirates of Shepherd and earned the first run rule decision of the year.
The Lady Cats jumped out to an early 8 run lead in the first 3 innings of play. Shepherd did not score until the top of the 4th inning, posting 2 runs. Splendora responded by posting 2 runs in the bottom half of each of the next 2 innings to make the final tally 12-2.
The Department of Hits saw contributions from multiple Lady Cat players. Tiffany Hinkelman & Brooke Millican lead the way with 3 RBIs each. Madison "Hoss" Prince & Ashley "AP" Prince both slammed hits for triples while Alexa Millican hammered 2 doubles & added 2 RBIs of her own. Overall the Splendora line up produced 14 hits, 8 of which were for extra bases.
In the Department of Defense, Natalie "Noot" McComber recored all 3 outs in the top of the 3rd inning, fielding all 3 fly balls to center field.
The Splendora Lady Cats will next take the Greatest Show on Dirt on the road to face the Tarkington Lady Horns.
