Mountie baseball falls is another close game

Softball

Late innings in Chargers cant rally past Bulldogs

North Montgomery softball for making progress. The Chargers fell 13-8 against Clinton Central on Monday but it was a late inning rally.

Trailing 10-0 in the fourth inning gave the Chargers seven runs to get to the right back. The Bulldogs would then extend their lead to two in the fifth and one in the sixth to make the score 13-7.

North Montgomery did not go down as quietly as they would have loaded the bases and nobody out in their final frame but could only run a single scratch across.

Piper Ramey and Cascie Keller each had a pair of Chargers and Blair Nichols droves for a pair of hits. Ramey has given up 11 hits and six hits while giving the Chargers the mound for the loss. The freshman is just one striking out eight.

The Chargers fall to 0-3 and will open up the Sagamore Conference play this evening as they travel to Western Boone.

Red Devils to the Athenians

The Crawfordsville Athenian offense showed signs of life in West Lafayette on Monday, but it was a case of too little, too late, and CHS fell 15-5 in five innings.

The second consecutive game hit for Brooklyn Mills was a five-run third inning as part of the Athenians’ home run. The Athenians tallied six total hits with Olivie Reed, Celeste Moore, Laine Schlicher, Bailey Crane, Briley Dillon and Mills all picking up a single hit.

“I’m really proud of them and we talk about this all the time. There’s no quit in this team,” Crawfordsville coach Brad Clark said. “They’re willing to fight until the very end and that mindset will serve them well. After getting down 9-0 it was 6-5 the way of the rest. I told them after the game that we just have to find a way to start quicker. ”

The Red Devils were led by a freshman Bree Johnson who went 3-4 with eight total RBI’s including a three-run home run.

Crawfordsville falls 0-5 on the road and will be on the road at Danville this evening against a Sagamore Conference double-header.
