The softball season is young, and while the Paris Lady Cats continue the long road back to credibility, opponents continue to use the big inning to fuel run-rule victories. In Thursday’s season opener, Princeton managed frames of 9 and 6 runs to take a 23-6 win in 5 innings. Then, on Friday at the Paris Junior High field, it was neighboring Chisum which pushed across 10 runs in the third inning and another 8 in the final sixth inning en route to a 20-3 decision.
Paris (0-2) tries to find the win column Tuesday back at PJHS as the Lady Cats host Detroit in a pair of games. JV starts at 5 with varsity to follow at 6:30.
Friday’s game was scoreless after two innings before the Lady Mustangs plated 10 in the third. The Lady Cats trimmed the lead to 10-2 with a pair of runs in the fourth, but Chisum answered with 2 in the fifth to regain the 10-run cushion. Paris then scored 1 run in the fifth to avoid an early end before the Lady Mustangs’ 8-run explosion in the sixth finished it.
Outfielder E Harris collected 2 hits with 2 RBI to pace the offense, while Tiffine Haan and pitcher Alaka Walters hit triples.
