Tincher loses pro debut; allows three home runs in loss

Akron, Ohio - The Akron Racers started their home season on Wednesday night, against the defending champion Washington Glory, on the short end of the stick.  The Glory (6-3) powered their way past the Racers (1-4) on the strength of an offensive explosion. 
 
Washington used three solo home runs against Racer number one draft pick Angela Tincher (0-1) to get an early lead that Washington starter Desiree Serrano (2-2)refused to give up. 
 
Washington's offense got started early with a round tripper by left fielder Catalina Morris.  Home runs by Courtney Bures and Sara Larquier in the the third and fourth innings respectively to extend lead.
 
Akron's offense showed a spark in their half of the third and fourth innings, scoring a run in each frame.  The offense got going in the bottom of the third when India Chiles got things going with a single and stolen base.  Chiles scored on a sacrifice attempt by Norelle Dickson that was mishandled by the pitcher Serrano. 

The Racers got another run back in the bottom of the fourth on a double by Kellie Middleton that plated Shannon Doepking.
 
That would be all the offense the Racers could muster as Serrano coasted to an easy victory, aided by a three run fourth inning and a two run sixth that put the Glory up by the final score of 7-2.  Serrano gave up two unearned runs on three hits and a pair of walks in five innings of work.
Angela Tincher's day didn't go how she would have planned it as the rookie gave up five runs on six hits and three home runs in 3.1 innings of work.  Tincher did strike out seven batters in her ten outs of work.
 
The Racers will continue their series with the Glory on Thursday night with the second game of the four game series.  To come out and support the Racers contact the ticket office at 330-376-8188.
