MMCRU softball beats RSM on walk-off
CLEGHORN — MMCRU used a two-out rally to earn a 9-8 walk-off win over Remsen St. Mary’s on Monday.
After relief pitcher Hailey Klein got the first two outs of the seventh, a single from Natalee Henke and a double from Faith Olson gave the Royals the win.
It was a back-and-forth game with plenty of scoring by both teams. Lexi Delperdang got the scoring started with a 2 RBI single in the second for the Hawks and the team stretched their lead out to as many as three runs with two more in the third.
MMCRU had their best inning in the third, scoring four runs as they took their first lead of the game. Errors were costly for RSM in what was an earlier two-out rally for the Royals. Back-to-back errors by the Hawks made it 4-3 in favor of RSM, but MMCRU got a run-scoring double from Kaitlyn Goth to tie the game after the errors. Goth came around to score on a single from Caitlyn Evans as the Royals took a brief lead.
Veda Pick hit her second home run of the season in the top of the fourth as she and baserunner Maddy Feller each scored to put the Hawks back in front. The team added one more as Brittany Johnson brought home Klein with an RBI double.
The bottom of the fifth saw back-to-back doubles push the Royals back in front as Kristina Goth and Molly Reuter had the two-baggers.
The final tie of the game came in the sixth as Klein singled to center field to knot the game up at 8-8.
MMCRU improves to 8-5 on the season and will host Kingsley-Pierson in non-conference action on Tuesday.
Remsen St. Mary’s drops to a record of 4-14 and will travel to play Hinton on Wednesday.
