BELL BUCKLE — Despite out-hitting the Siegel Stars 4-2 on Monday night, the Cascade Lady Champions couldn’t produce a timely hit to put a run on the board, and ultimately fell 6-0 on senior night.
Without recording a hit in the top of the first inning, the Stars took an early 2-0 lead after three batters were walked and two were hit-by-pitch.
The Lady Champions (7-12) put themselves in position to score in the bottom half of the inning with Ella Thompson dropping a single into center field, and advancing to third base two at-bats later on a passed ball and wild pitch, but a ground out ended the inning to leave them scoreless.
After a scoreless second inning, the Stars (16-5) added two more runs to their total in the top of the third inning as Jasmine Sneed knocked a two-out triple for their first hit of the game and a 4-0 advantage.
Cascade went down in order with three ground outs in the bottom of the third inning, but starting pitcher Brianna Horn was able to keep Siegel off the board in the top of the fourth as she struck out two batters to bring her total to five at that point.
Horn pitched the full game for the Lady Champions, totaling eight strikeouts and 13 walks on the night.
With a quick defensive inning of their own to answer, the Stars put down the Lady Champs in order with freshman pitcher Mackenzie Ventura striking out the side in the bottom of the fourth.
Ventura totaled 10 strikeouts on the night while walking only one.
Siegel plated their final two runs of the game in the top of the fifth behind a leadoff double from Olivia Haile, three walks, and a fielder’s choice to take a 6-0 lead.
Over the course of the final two innings, Cascade recorded the only two hits from either team with a single from Alivia Fannin and a double from Kyndal Bolden, but couldn’t bring them back around to score.
