BHS softball run-rules DeSoto
Winning one out of two games isn't always bad, just ask the Baldwin High School softball team.
The Bulldogs split its two games at Spring Hill on Tuesday night. They beat DeSoto 11-1, but lost 2-0 to Spring Hill to bring their record to 5-9.
"We run-ruled DeSoto and we should have won that game," head coach Ginny Honomichl said. "Then we played really well in the second game, too, but we just didn't hit consistently enough."
In the first game, Baldwin fell behind 2-0 before its bats started clicking. In one inning, the Bulldogs hit through the line up in taking a lead they would never give back.
"It went really well, actually," Krysztof said. "The DeSoto game was really fun. It was our first run-ruled game. It was fun to come out and play the first game like that."
The game was over after the fifth inning because of the run rule. It was a nice boost for the team, because it had lost three games in row before that.
"We needed it," Honomichl said. "We needed that kind of game. They took a lead, then we tied it up, and then we started hitting. Courtney Johnson pitched a good game that game."
Krysztof said the first game was a lot of fun for the team.
"It was more fun, because we got a lot of scores in one inning," Krysztof said. "It was really fun to go up and hit and see everybody do well."
The second game was against Spring Hill, the defending Class 4A State Champions. The Bulldogs hung tough, but were defeated 2-0.
"We played decent defense and got our selves out of some pretty potentially bad situations," Honomichl said. "We competed well and I was really pleased."
Krysztof was proud of the team for playing Spring Hill to tightly.
"The second game we were really proud, because Spring Hill is the state champions and they didn't graduate anybody, and we played them 2-0. I was pretty proud."
The Bulldogs next play today in a triangular against Eudora and Anderson County. The games begin at 4:30 p.m. in Eudora.
