Bandits Pick Up Game Three

Lisle, Ill. – The battle continues in Chicago as the Bandits won their second game this weekend against the New York Juggernaut 3-2. The two teams have been exchanging the wins since last weekend in New York.

Lindsay Chouinard gave up 5 hits but picked up her 8th win of the season in the circle for the Chicago Bandits. On the other end, Jodie Cox gave up 8 hits and struck out too. Cox took the loss for her third this year.

Both teams welcomed back players who were in Japan this past week playing on the USA National Team. Bandits Jaime Clark and Vicky Galindo along with Juggernaut Natasha Watley returned to play with their NPF team for the rest of the series. In the first inning alone, Watley created two outs defensively.

The game didn’t get rolling until the bottom of the third inning when the Bandits scored the first run of the game.

Bandit Vicky Galindo gladly accepted the walk to first that put her in position to score with two outs. Gina Oaks recorded her 7th RBI when she drove in Galindo off of her single to deep left. The inning ended on an out from Oaks at first when the officials caught her leaving the bag first.

Treena Peel walked to first but was not on base for long when she was caught stealing by catcher Selena Collins. Both catchers Collins and Juggernaut Ryan Realmuto were aggressive behind the plate in this competition.

The Bandits exploded in the fourth inning with their bats, but only came up with one run. Pitcher Amanda Cox gave up three hits in this inning alone.

Jaime Clark hit a blooper that dropped in short center just enough to bring her to first. Clark was moved around the bases with the next two batters but when Christina Enea pushed the ball to the left field outfielder Kaleo Eldredge gunned the ball to home. Catcher Realmuto tagged Clark a couple feet in front of the plate. Collins made up for the previous play by scoring Enea with her single to bring the Bandits to 2-0.

Kate Varde singled and was instantly replaced by Liz Bouck to run. Next up, Galindo was hit by pitch, although coach Julie Smith would disagree as appealed the call to the home plate umpire . Oaks hit a line drive down the left field line to bring in Bouck (who re-entered to run). New York switched it up by bring in relief pitcher Aubun Sigurdson to finish off the inning with two outs.

The Juggernaut procrastinated by waiting until the 7th inning to put some runs on the board. Chouinard gave up four hits including a double.

Alicia Smith was taken off the bench to start off the final rally. Smith completed her task by singling to get on. Chelsea Spencer, who was hit by a pitch in the first inning, drove in Smith with her double. Jackie Pasquerella became the potential tying run on first with her single as Spencer crossed the plate. After Watley was safe at first, Pasquerella continued on to third, but first basemen Enea threw the ball to Galindo who tagged her for the final out.

The final game between the Chicago Bandits and New York Juggernaut will take place noon Sunday, August 7th at the Bandits’ home field in Lisle, Ill. Sunday will be Kid’s Day featureing Nemo and his fun bouncy house and dunk tank. For more information visit the official website or call 1-877-7BANDIT.
