Sting Outgunned by Mountaineers

Sting Outgunned by Mountaineers

The Seneca Sting (0-12) had one of their best offensive games of the season, but they were outgunned at the plate by the Mohawk Mountaineers (4-6) in a 13-7 defeat.

In what appeared to be a disasterous start, the Mountaineers scored eight runs before the Sting even entered the batter's box. Undeterred, the Sting scored a run in the first when Danielle Pound scored following a leadoff single for the second consecutive game.

The home team surrendered a run in the second inning and three more third before finding their groove at the plate. Pound once again led off with a single and moved second when Jasmin Namnama reached on an error. Kiara Saito was hit by to load the bases, setting the stage for a two-run single by Leeanne Delorme. Kiara Thomas loaded the bases with a single to left field and Chantal Gendron added another run when she grounded out. Nicole Pearce reached on an error to score Delorme and would later scored on an RBI single by Alik Derderian.

Following a pair of scoreless innings, the Mountaineers added one final run in the sixth inning.

Pound had a great day at plate, going 3-for-4 with 2 runs scored. Namnama, Delorme and Pearce each had a hit and run scored. Delorme added two RBIs and Katie Potter had a single down the right field to lead off the seventh inning in her lone plate appearance.

Shelby Hayward (3 runs, 2 RBIs), Stephanie Godden (2 runs, 3 RBIs) and Ellie Tindate (2 runs, 3 RBIs) did the damage at the plate for the Mountaineers with each recording three hits. Alyssa Van Der Werf also added a pair of RBIs.

Tindale picked up the win, throwing a scoreless 4.1 innings while allowing 2 hits, 1 walk and 3 strikeouts. Van Der Werf started the game, allowing 7 runs (2 earned) on 8 hits and a strikeout in 2.2 innings. Gendron suffered the loss, allowing 9 runs (6 earned) on 7 hits, 1 walk and 2 strikeouts in 1.2 innings. Pearce came on in relief for the Sting, allowing 4 runs (4 earned) on 8 hits, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts in 5.1 innings.
