Lady Tigers Drop Pitchers’ Dual With Schuyler County
While the opponents haven’t gone easy on the Scotland County softball team, Mother Nature has been the biggest obstacle.
The Lady Tigers got just one game in last week, and that was a rescheduled affair in Queen City against Schuyler County. The contest originally set for September 9th, was moved to the following afternoon due to rain.
Alyssa Greenstreet made SCR-I wish it could have waited a little longer for the contest. The Rams pitcher threw a one-hitter to help the home team capture a 2-0 Tri-Rivers Conference victory.
Deidra Dochterman walked with two outs in the first inning to give SCR-I its lone base runner in the first five frames.
Kelly Lister nearly matched the performance. She worked out of a jam in the second inning before Schuyler County finally got on the scoreboard in the fourth.
With two outs Lister hit a batter. A stolen base was followed by an SCR-I fielding error that ultimately allowed two unearned runs to cross the plate.
That was all the offense Greenstreet needed. She retired straight batters after the first inning walk. Christina Duzan broke up the no-hitter with a two-out single in the sixth inning.
Lister reached on an error with one out in the seventh but Schuyler County quickly worked out of the threat.
Lister took the loss despite not allowing an earned run. She gave up three hits, a walk and hit a batter while striking out two.
SCR-I dropped to 1-5 on the season. The two previously scheduled games versus Clark County and Novinger that were canceled due to the weather, will not be rescheduled.
After dropping the league opener, SCR-I finds itself in the heart of the conference schedule with the next six regularly scheduled contests all versus league opponents. SCR-I is also slotted to play Saturday in the MCMC Tourney in Trenton as well as in the Schuyler County Tourney the following Saturday.
Schuyler County took the junior varsity contest as well by a final score of 4-1. Jessica Sites scored the SCR-I run in the fourth inning on a base hit by Shelby Westhoff.
