Cowgirls Blow Over Lady Rangers During Storm

 The Cowgirls used the high winds to the benefit to win over Lady Rangers

 

ESTACADA, OR - Maybe it was the heavy rain. Maybe it was the wind. Maybe it was the scoreboard flickering on and off during the game. Either way, Friday’s wind and rain storm did not benefit the Lady Rangers, as they fell 13-2 in 6 innings to the Crook County Cowgirls.

 

Things did not start out well for the Lady Rangers (4-6, 0-1 Tri-Valley Conference), as the Cowgirls (5-4, 1-0 Tri-Valley Conference) stuck out 6 batters in the first three innings. Estacada held strong, only allowing 1 run in those 3 innings, but that’s when the rain and wind started taking its toll on the game.

12 batters would reach the plate during the top of the 4th, and nine Cowgirls would cross home. The Lady rangers would attempt to come back on a solo home run by senior catcher Hailey Clark to deep center field to cut the lead down to 8. A RBI single by sophomore Emily Gant scored junior Jenna Peterson which made it 9-2, but that’s as close as the Lady Rangers would get.

After keeping Crook County scoreless in the 5th, the Cowgirls bats came alive in the top of the 6th, as 4 more runs were scored to seal the deal, winning 13-2.

 

“I figured out her [McKuenzie McCormick, starting pitcher for Crook County] pattern. If she threw it inside or down the middle, she’s going to have to pay for it,” said Clark, about her home run in the 4th. “I felt like it sparked the team a lot.

“We didn’t come out and hit right off the bat,” commented head coach Mike Clark about the loss. “They started timing up our pitchers, but at the end we starting hitting off of her [McCormick]. Last year she was the pitcher of the year in the league. We hit her really well and not many teams did that last year. For us to come out and get a bunch of base hits, score some runs off of her, and let her know we are a good hitting team is a big stride for us. We’ll get them we go up there.”
