It had been a long time they had some offensive pep, since Kirk’s first home run, perhaps. At one point, Legacy starter Ryan Wright had sat down eight in a row until Smithart’s single to open the fourth. But, in that inning Wright struck out the side, something that happened to the Tigers five times, including the sixth and seventh innings.
Wright had 13 strikouts, and allowed all three runs.
The Tigers stranded only five runners Saturday, simply because they didn’t have any. Wright and Karlie Milburn had better control than Kendall Potts did in the opener. They walked two in addition to Polk’s hit by pitch.
Polk, meanwhile, had the Tigers’ other hit, a fifth-inning, two-out floater over first. She stole second, but was left there.
