The Red Boiling Springs Lady Bulldog Softball team has been playing very good lately.
However last Monday night the Lady Bulldogs jumped out to a 11-2 lead and some of the Lady Bulldogs fans thought this game was going down in the win column but the Lady Blue Devils had other ideas. They stormed back to rally for a 13-11 win. The Red Boiling Springs fans could not believe what they were watching but we all know the old saying that it is not over until it’s over.
The Lady Bulldogs hit the Lady Blue Devils with a 5 spot in the bottom half of the 1st inning to grab the lead. Tracy Knight started the inning with a double followed with a walk to Macy Raines and Tamara Murphy was hit by a pitch to load the bases for the Lady Bulldogs. Taylor Cothron promptly laced a double to center field that scored Knight, Raines, and Murphy. Kylie Birdwell drew a walk as did Alexis Ouellette and both runners scored on a passed ball and a wild pitch and a 5-0 lead belonged to the Lady Bulldogs.
The Lady Bulldogs added 2 more runs in the bottom of the 2nd inning with Traci Knight lining a double to left field followed by a hit by Macy Raines and a walk to Krystyn McMillan and Allison Deckard singled to score Knight and Raines.
The Lady Bulldogs added 5 runs in the home half of the 4th inning to take an 11-2 lead. Krystyn McMillan drew a walk and scored on a triple by Allison Deckard who scored on a hit by Taylor Cothron followed by a hit batter and then Bailey Tucker scored Kylie Birdwell and Tucker would later score on an error and a wild pitch.
Jackson County started their rally by scoring 5 runs in the 5th inning and then the Lady Blue Devils added 6 more runs in the 6th inning to grab a 13-11 lead that turned out to be the final score.
The Lady Bulldogs had runners on base in the 6th and 7th innings but failed to score. The Lady Bulldogs will now travel to Watertown for a district game and then the final game of the season will find the Lady Bulldogs traveling to Westmoreland in a non district game.
The play in game is scheduled for May 6th and it now appears that Trousdale County will be traveling to Red Boiling and the winner of that game will join Watertown plus Goodpasture and Gordonsville for the district Tournament which has to be finished by May 13th.
