Mascoutah drops Lady Rams

MT. VERNON — The Lady Rams had plenty of scoring opportunities against Mascoutah, but rarely cashed them in.

Mascoutah beat Mt. Vernon 2-1 Thursday, and the Lady Rams finished the game zero of 13 with runners in scoring position.

The Lady Rams got base runners in each inning and moved runners into scoring position in six of the frames.

We just couldn't get them across,” Mt. Vernon coach Lance Boldt said. “We had 13 runners out there. You go 0 for 13 with runners in scoring position, you're going to make it pretty tough on yourself. They made good plays. Part of it was they had a couple spectacular diving catches.”

Mascoutah opened the scoring in the third with a tally. The Lady Indians pushed across a run with a groundout to go up 1-0. Mascoutah tacked on another score in the top of the sixth. Kennedy Bryant knocked an RBI triple to give the Lady Indians a 2-0 edge.

Mt. Vernon's lone tally came in the sixth. Rachel Wright opened the inning with a leadoff double. Hannah Carbonaro walked, and the two runners moved up a base after a Mascoutah throwing error. Lauren Wilson came to the plate and rapped an RBI groundout to slice the deficit to 2-1.

The Lady Rams mustered another offensive chance in their final at-bat. Colleen Skobel led off with a walk. Pinch runner Lauren Heiznman stole second, but the Lady Rams were unable to push home the tying run. Jazmine Hawkins and Rachel Wright both took a called third strike in the inning.

Too close to take with two strikes,” Boldt said. “I know the girls were saying that they were five, six inches outside, but you know if he's calling it there at the end with two strikes you have to swing at it, I guess. (It's) no excuse.”
