Lady Bulldogs blanked by Demons

The Lady Bulldogs’ woes continued Monday evening against the Duncan Demons.

The Demons got off to a hot start against the Lady Bulldogs and never really slowed down, wracking up 13 total hits in seven innings of play.

The Lady Bulldogs managed to keep it close through three innings with Kymbree McKee giving up only three runs, but it was the fourth inning that would ruin her night as the Demons blew open the game, scoring five runs in the inning.

Unfortunately, McKee’s troubles did not stop there. In the bottom of the fifth inning, McKee was pulled in favor of Alana Lopez after giving up two walks and a hit to start the inning.

McKee ended her night giving up 10 hits, eight runs with seven of them earned, five walks and two strikeouts.

Meanwhile, Lopez finished the game strong giving up just three hits, one run with zero earned, and one strikeout in two innings of pitching.

For the Lady Bulldogs, Kelsee Baker was a bright spot for the offense as she earned two hits in three at-bats.

Unfortunately, the Bulldogs could not plate a run and ended up losing 9-0 to the Demons dropping them to 1-3 on the season.

The Lady Bulldogs resume play at Missile Park today at 4 p.m. in a double header against Western Heights.

Duke Lady Tigers pummel Indiahoma Warriors

The Lady Tigers came out with one mission and that was apparently to win the game as quickly as possible.

The Lady Tigers needed only two and one-half innings to dispatch of the wounded Warriors, scoring five in the first inning and ten in the second to activate the mercy rule.

Abby Jones pitched lights out for the Lady Tigers, going three innings and allowing only three hits and one run while striking out five and walking zero.

The Warriors lone run came in the first inning and it was the only bit of offense the Warriors were able to generate.

The first points of the game for the Lady Tigers came after a bases loaded situation saw Kaylee Keck rip one over the left field wall for a grand slam.

Keck ended the night as 2-for-3 with two runs scored and four runs-batted-in or RBI’s.

Kelsey Summers also had an outstanding night at the plate, driving in three runs, scoring once herself and going a perfect 2-for-2.

Other notables include Calebi Cusher’s 2-for-3 showing with two runs scored and two RBI’s and Abby Jones’ 2-for-2 night with two runs scored and two RBI’s.

The Lady Tigers are 3-1 on the season and will be at home against Hollis tonight at 5:30 p.m.
