Pride Drop Racers, 8-0

AKRON, OH – August 16, 2012 – Kristyn Sandberg of USSSA Florida Pride (28-12) had the play of the game when she blasted a three-run home run giving the Pride a 6-0 lead.

 The Pride would add two more runs, defeating the Racers by a score of 8-0 after putting 13 hits on the board.

 The Pride started off the second inning with two singles by Ashley Charters and Megan Willis. Andrea Duran followed up by hitting a double, allowing for Charters to score a run.

 In the top of the third, Caitlin Lowe hit a single and stole second with Jessica Mendoza at-bat. Lowe then took third and on Mendoza’s base hit she scored a run for the Pride.

 Pride catcher Willis led off the fourth inning by hitting a solo home run off of Hillary Bach’s (5-8) curve ball. The Racers stepped up their defense getting Duran out on a fly ball and Lauren Lappin out on a line drive to third baseman Kelley Montalvo.

 The Akron Racers (14-27) didn’t make their mark until the fourth inning when Lisa Modglin hit a single. Taylor Schlopy then got a base off of an error and Brianna Hesson hit a single to center field leaving the bases loaded.

 Nicole Pauly, next at-bat, struck out and Kaylyn Castillo finished the inning with a beautiful hit to center field that Caitlin Lowe caught with a diving catch, ending the Racers threat.

 In the fifth inning, Sandberg scored herself as well as Lowe and Mendoza on her three-run home run.

 Following the runs, the Racers changed pitchers and put Jen Mineau (0-1) in the pitching circle. Willis managed a single off an error, leaving two runners on base. Duran scored Charters, while getting out at first base on a fielder’s choice.

 In the top of the sixth the Pride made their final mark when Jessica Mendoza hit a solo home run on the second pitch leaving the score at 8-0.

 Cat Osterman (9-4) pitched five innings for the Pride allowing three hits on no runs with seven strikeouts lowering her ERA from 0.76 to 0.72.
