Lady Bulldogs run away from Glascock with 15 runs
Amanda Hall’s inside-the-park homerun was the only run the Georgia Military College high school managed in the first inning against Glascock County. But after the Lady Bulldogs’ offense warmed up, they went on to win 15-4 and extended their record to 7-3 overall and 3-0 in region 7-A.
The Bulldogs looked to be in a tough game when the Lady Panthers bit back in the second through an Alisse Folwer RBI that made it 1-1. But on their next turn at the plate, the GMC offense found its swing and the game became a Bulldog blowout.
There were two outs when the punishment began. Jennifer Mixon got on base with a single and then Amanda Hall, who went 4-4 on the night with 5 RBIs, doubled and brought her home.
With the lead change, Glascock floundered and began to commit errors. Haley Halloway cracked a double down the third-base line into the outfield that the defense bobbled, allowing two runs to score.
From the mound, Fowler tried her best to pitch her club out of the inning, but the next two Bulldog batters refused to sit down and after each fouled several pitches away, they both ended up on base with RBIs, thanks to more Panther fielding errors.
After they held Glascock in the third inning, the Lady Bulldogs’ hitting picked up where it left off and took the game beyond the Panther’s reach by scoring eight more runs.
With the bases loaded, Hall drove in three runs when she launched a double that was inches away from leaving the park.
When Fowler walked in a run to make it 12-1, the Lady Panther’s coach had seen enough and he pulled her out in favor of Katie Dixon. Facing the tough task of stemming the Bulldog rally, Dixon struggled and gave up two more runs before she and the Panthers were able to end the inning.
To start the fourth, GMC made a pitching change of their own and brought in Jennifer Mixon. After hitting her first batter, Mixon went on to throw a few more wild pitches that gave away a couple of runs before she calmed down.
In the fifth inning, GMC replaced Mixon with Karey Harris, who was too much for Glascock. When the Panthers failed to get a rally started, the game was stopped because of the mercy rule.
“It took us about an inning and a half to get started,” said GMC coach Garry Couch after the game. “After that, we stayed on them for most of the day.”
Lady Panthers’ Coach Don Mims agreed.
“GMC is a very good team,” he said. “If you don’t come with your A-game, you’re going to get embaressed, and we got embaressed.”
Overall, Couch was pleased with the way his team played defense and the way they hit the ball.
“This was a good team effort,” he said after the game. “A good team win.”
The Lady Bulldogs return to action against Aquinas at home on Thursday at 5 p.m.
