Bri Calabria leads Lady Patriots to 5-4 victory thanks to 8 strikeouts

Prairiland Patriot LogoA superb effort by Bri Calabria carried Lady Patriots to a 5-4 win in seven innings over Palmer on Saturday at Royse City. Bri put together a nice outing. Bri held Palmer hitless over 5 2/3 innings, allowed no earned runs, walked one and struck out eight.

The game was back-and-forth heading into the seventh, with four lead changes. The Lady Patriots took the lead in the seventh inning and held on for the victory. Lady Patriots went up for good on an RBI single by Bri, bringing home Macy Madewell.

It was a good day at the plate for Lady Patriots’ Macy. Macy went 2-4 and scored two runs. She singled in the first inning and doubled in the seventh inning.

The Palmer pitcher lasted all seven innings, walking three, striking out seven, as she allowed five runs. The Lady Patriots jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first. Macy got things going for Lady Patriots with a single. Bailey Woodard singled, scoring Chelsea Kimberling and Macy.

Lady Patriots makes the most of 7 hits in 8-3 victory over Palmer

Prairiland Patriot LogoBoth Lady Patriots and Palmer put runners aboard on Thursday, but it was Lady Patriots that was able to take advantage, pulling out an 8-3 win at Royse City.

Palmer had nine hits compared with Lady Patriots’ seven, but Palmer stranded seven runners on base.

Bailey Woodard led Lady Patriots’ offensive threat, as she got on base three times in the game. She scored two runs and had one RBI. She singled in the fourth inning.

Bri Calabria got it done in the circle on the way to a win. She allowed three runs over five innings. She struck out six, walked two and surrendered six hits.

Palmer’s pitcher couldn’t get it done on the rubber, taking a loss. She allowed eight runs in six innings, walked four and struck out three.

Lady Patriots closer Madi Gray put away the final six outs to record the save.

Lady Patriots stayed on top until the final out after taking the lead in the second, scoring three runs on an RBI double by Chelsea Kimberling, an error, and a fielder’s choice.

Lady Patriots built upon its lead with three runs in the fourth. A error scored Chelsea to get Lady Patriots on the board in the inning. That was followed up by Bailey’s single, bringing home Macy Madewell.

After pushing across three runs in the top of the fifth, Palmer faced just a 8-3 deficit, but that was all as the Lady Pats were able to end the threat.

Game two in this series will be Saturday night at 5:00 in Royce City. Game three will be 30 minutes after if necessary.

Panther Senior throws no-hitter as North Lamar wins first game in the playoffs

Daniel Gibbons

Daniel Gibbons

North Lamar senior Daniel Gibbons has pitched great ever since he returned from his knee injury. The last two games he pitched in District were both complete games that ended in a 1-0 score. In the first game of their playoff series with Emory/Rains, the big lefty shut down the offense.

Gibbons pitched five innings, allowed no hits, struck out 10 and had three walks. The offense, meanwhile, didn’t take long to get on the board. North Lamar put up six run in the first inning behind a single, a couple walks, and some passed balls. North Lamar would add a couple more in the second while adding one each in the third and fourth innings.

The game was over because of the run-rule after the fifth inning. North Lamar will play game two on Saturday at 12:00 in Sulphur Springs. If necessary, game three will be 30 minutes after that game.
