The Lady Bruins fought Frankton tough 5 innings until the Eagles scored 7 runs on 4 hits, including a two run home run, in the 6th to break the game open.
The Lady Bruins were out hit 11-3. Alex Whittig took the loss for Blackford. She threw seven innings allowing ten runs, 11 hits, and struck out seven. Erin Cagle, Alena Lee, and Saylor Goodspeed each had one hit to lead Blackford.
“We were out hit tonight. They hit the ball well toward the end of the game. On the bright side, we only committed one error against a petty good team,” said coach Dick Lyon after the game.
The Lady Bruins are now 4-8 for the season and face CIC foe Elwood at Bruin Field on Wednesday if official can be located. This game was to be played Thursday but rain in the forecast is the reason the game may move up a day. It will be a 5pm start.
