Chicago's Big Innings Lead to Win Over Akron

LISLE, Ill. - After having their game called the night before due to bad weather, the Comcast Chicago Bandits and the Akron Racers played game two at the Sports Complex at Benedictine University this evening.

Hits were sporadic throughout the first three innings of the game. The Racers mustered up two hits while the home team bats were silenced by pitcher Jamee Juarez.

The orange and black opened the game up in the home half of the fourth. Vicky Galindo led off with a single up the middle for the first Bandit hit of the game. Lindsay Schutzler followed with a single to left. Kristie Fox took a free pass to first. Jaime Clark took a hard swing just under the ball causing the catcher to miss it, allowing Galindo to scamper home. With runners on second and third, Clark hit a groundball to second, Akron’s Veronica Wootson attempted to throw Fox out at third but the throw was late allowing Schutzler to score from third. Stephanie Brown pinch ran for Clark and promptly stole second. Stacy May lined out to center for the first out of the inning. Gina Oaks laid down a perfect squeeze that brought Fox in to score and Brown in to third. Nicole Trimboli singled to left field to drive home Brown with the fourth run of the inning.

Akron answered back with vengeance the following inning rocking a pair of homeruns.

A couple fielding errors and good Bandit batting led to a productive fifth inning and three more runs for Chicago.

Jessica Sallinger improved her record to 8-4 as Jamee Juarez picked up the loss for the Racers making her record 11-5 on the season.

This game ups the Bandits’ record to 19-15 making them tied for third in the league with none other than the Akron Racers.

The Bandits will be playing a doubleheader tomorrow against the Racers to makeup for the cancelled game on Monday. The first game is scheduled to start at 6 pm and the second game will follow shortly after. The two games will be pivotal
