Game Summary

Ethel Walker hosted Taft on a beautiful Friday afternoon. Both teams played a great game, and Walker’s was able to pull out a 2-1 victory. Great pitching and solid defense highlighted a quick first 4 innings. While both teams scattered hits throughout, strong defense kept the score knotted at 0. In the top of the 5th, Taft got on the board with a hit, a Walker’s error and an RBI single. Hannah Theriault ’20 stranded the runners though, keeping Taft at by. In the bottom of the 6th, Cecelia Petrarca ’19 beat out an infield single to start the inning. After a strikeout, Reagan Kerecz ’20 hit a long fly ball that the left fielder misplayed into a 2-base hit. With Kerecz at 2nd and Petrarca at 3rd, Taft chose to intentionally walk Sara Fallon ’19. Gabby Garcia ’19 made Taft pay for the decision with a first pitch base hit through the left side of the infield. The hit scored 2, and Walker’s took a 2-1 lead to the 7th inning. Theriault pitched a 1-2-3 inning, getting a grounder to 3rd, a line out to shortstop and a fly ball to right field, which Riley Shelon ’20 played perfectly. Walker’s uses the big win to stay undefeated in Founders League play ahead of a showdown with Westminster on Monday. On the season, Walker’s is now 8-2.
