Bulldogs hit the road, improve to 8-0

April 20, 2009

The McLouth High softball team passed its first road test of the season on Monday with a doubleheader sweep at Jeff West.

The Bulldogs won 12-3 and 6-2 to improve their season record to 8-0.

Senior pitcher Lezley Lawson threw a complete game and fanned 11 JWHS batters to improve to 7-0 in the circle.

Lawson was hot at the plate, going 4-for-5, but Kaley Patterson was even hotter, finishing the game 5-for-5.

Missy Rome went 2-for-4 for MHS and Courtney Stauch was 2-for-3.

McLouth scored six runs in the top of the sixth to blow a 6-2 game wide open.

The 6-2 victory in game two marked the first time this season a pitcher other than Lawson picked up a win for the Bulldogs. Patterson started and struck out five before Lawson entered in the bottom of the fifth to finish the game.

Patterson remained red-hot in the batter’s box, going 4-for-4 in the second half of the twinbill to finish the doubleheader an amazing 9-for-9, which prompted MHS coach Ballard Patterson to call it the best night he has seen from an individual at the plate during his time at McLouth.

Jessie Troupe was 2-for-3 in the four-run victory and Morgan Drinnon went 2-for-2 and drew a pair of walks.

The Bulldogs hit the road again on Tuesday, when they travel to Valley Falls.
