Lady Berriessurvive Mavs

Logansport unloads for 7runs in deciding 8th inning

WEST LAFAYETTE — It took extra innings but Logansport’s softball team was finally able to dispatch a pesky McCutcheon squad.

The Berries survived regulation and exploded for seven runs in the eighth inning in an 11-4 win over the Mavericks on Monday in the first game of the Class 4A Harrison Sectional.

Logan (19-8) has now won 15 of 16 entering today’s 5:30 p.m. semifinal against No. 2-ranked Harrison (23-2). The Raiders destroyed Kokomo 18-0 in five innings in the later first-round game as Kaitlynn Moody struck out 15 of the 16 batters she faced in throwing a no-hitter.

The Berries had to sweat out their win over the Mavericks as they allowed four unearned runs in the regulation. The Mavs had the winning run on second in a 4-4 game in the bottom of the seventh when Bailie Long got No. 3 hitter Isabella Kokocinski to fly out to left to end the threat.

The Berries then struck for seven in the eighth to end the suspense. Jennifer Kreighbaum, who finished 4-for-5 on the night, started the rally with a bunt single, her second bunt hit of the game.

“Usually when I’m not really sure how my hitting is I try for a bunt and it works out pretty good,” she said.

Emily Prentice, who had struggled popping up the ball earlier in the game, followed with a line drive hit to center to put runners on first and third. Following a short fly out for the first out, Sydney Thompson hit a grounder to third and Kreighbaum was able to slide safely into home just ahead of the throw to give Logan a 5-4 lead.

“I was a little hesitant but I got there and that’s all that really mattered at the moment,” Kreighbaum said. “It was really close.”

Bailey Kelley followed with a base hit to load the bases. Mallory Rowe then smacked an RBI single to make it 6-4. Lauren Pruitt and Kennedy Curl followed with back-to-back two-run doubles to break the game wide open and make it a 10-4 game. Kreighbaum’s second hit of the inning made it 11-4.
