Eleven run 3rd inning powers Bandits

ELGIN - With the bases juiced and two outs, Bandits' shortstop Jamie Clark stepped up to bat and launched a bomb to straight away center, clearing the bases for her first grand slam of the season as part of an 11 run, eight hit inning, giving the Bandits a 12-1 lead after three innings.  
 

The massive third inning broke an NPF record when 16 batters scored the 11 runs on eight hits. The Bandits (4-4) went on to win the game, 14-1, over the Racers (1-3) in the final game of the four game set.  
 

The heavy hitting inning didn't stop there for the Bandits' as Samantha Findlay made up for her inning-starting strike out with a deep shot of her own, clearing the centerfield stands for her first career homerun, with only two outs in the inning.  
 

Kristie Fox started the 11 run third inning when she doubled to left-center to put Trimboli on third. With one out, Lyndsey Schutzler slap-hit the ball to third, scoring Trimboli and putting the Bandits' up 2-0. A sacrifice bunt by Ashley Carlson moved the runners into scoring position at second and third.  
 

Stacy May stepped up to bat next, launching a 2 RBI double to left centerfield, barely making it to second in a close play – putting the Bandits up 4-1. A wild pitch by McHugh followed up the double, moving May to third with two outs and Rachel Folden earned a free pass to first, loading the bases for Clark's blast off a substitute pitcher Kate Robinson. Kristie Fox capped off the inning by launching a two-run homer of her own, putting the Bandits at 12 runs after three.  
 

Akron started the scoring off in the top of the first, when Veronica Wootson led off the game with a single, and reached third after a stolen base and sacrifice bunt. Kim Hamilton stepped up to bat next, cranking a double to centerfield, putting the Racers up early 1-0.  
 

The lead lasted into the bottom of the second when Chicago's Amanda Freed hit a liner to center, sending Carlson around the bags to score and tie it up 1-1.
