GC Softball: Mildred doubles up Bruceville-Eddy, 8-4


Mildred coach Billy Dan Chambliess had a plan for the seventh-ranked Bruceville-Eddy Lady Eagles and his trio of pitchers Olivia Farmer, Aubyn Turner and Joanna Tapley carried out his plan to near perfection in an 8-4 Region III-2A quarterfinals win.

"I just told them to hit their spots and not let the big bats of Bruceville-Eddy beat us," Chambliess said, referring to Ashley Hoehn, Dakota Holly and Shelby Friudenberg, who each hit over .650 for the year and have a combined 140 RBIs.

Farmer went four and 1/3 innings allowing only three hits while striking out four for the Lady Eagles. Turner came in and pitched one and 2/3 innings and got the win for Mildred. She gave up three hits and struck out three before being relieved by Tapley in the seventh inning. Tapley sandwiched two strikeouts around a fielder’s choice in the inning to close out the game.

The top of the first inning was played on Friday night but the game was delayed until Saturday because of rain and lightning. Play began on Saturday with Mildred coming to bat with no score.

Callie Bland led off with a single and then stole second base. Maddie Moore drove a single up the middle for and RBI and a 1-0 lead. Moore went to second on the throw to the plate and was driven home by Farmer's single for a 2-0 lead. Farmer then stole second base and moved to third on an infield single by Morgan McCreary. After Farmer was thrown out at the plate on a double steal attempt, Savannah Pritchett hit an RBI single to rightfield for a 3-0 lead after one inning of play.

Bruceville-Eddy scored a run in the second inning on a double steal and the score remained 3-1 until the fifth inning. Bruceville-Eddy scored two runs in the top of the fifth inning on a Friudenberg solo homerun and a hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to make the score 3-3.

Bruceville-Eddy would take the lead in the top of the sixth inning on a throwing error and head to the bottom of the inning with a 4-3 lead.

McCreary started the Mildred rally in the bottom of the sixth inning with a lead-off double to leftfield. Savannah Pritchett then laid down a bunt single to put runners at the corners for the Eagles with no outs. Brianna Weaver's RBI sacrifice bunt tied the score at 4-4. Turner walked to put two on for the Lady Eagles with one out. Abbie Burnham then bunted the ball back to the pitcher who over threw third base on the force play to allow Pritchett to score and Mildred led 5-4. Turner ended up at third base and Burnham at second on the error. Bland then hit a sacrifice fly to leftfield to plate Turner and a 6-4 lead. Moore collected her second RBI of the game on a double to left-centerfield and scored on Farmer's third hit of the game for Mildred's final run and an 8-4 lead.

Mildred will now take on Garrison in the regional semi-finals at a date and time TBD.
