The Bowie Lady Rabbits lost a tough match against Iowa Park on a game that was started on Tuesday and finished on Wednesday due to weather issues.
The Lady Hawks won 14-4 after six innings due to run-rule as the Lady Rabbits defense gave up 10 runs in the final two innings.
Bowie was hoping it could bounce back after a disappointing loss at Jacksboro the previous week, but knew it would be tough against Iowa Park.
With first-year varsity players Serenity Klump and then KP Rutherford getting time on the mound for the first time during district play, the change might hopefully spark something within the team.
The Lady Hawks struck first with a leadoff double and an RBI single that followed to go up 1-0. Thankfully, Bowie pulled out a double-play after a fly out to center field when the runner failed to tag up. The Lady Rabbits got the third out two batters later.
Bowie threatened to retaliate about as hard as it could in the same inning.
Chloe Kinney drew a leadoff walk and later Klump and Rutherford hit singles to load the bases up with one out.
Unfortunately, the Lady Rabbits could not get any runners home as the game moved to the second inning.
Iowa Park bats added to its lead with four singles scoring two more runs to put the Lady Hawks up 3-0.
Bowie’s defense was able to blank Iowa Park in the third inning despite two runners getting on base, which left the door open for the Lady Rabbits offense to retaliate.
With two outs, Rutherford’s pop fly to the shortstop resulted in an error that sparked a two out rally. Laney Oliver then hit a single, advancing to second base on the throw home to put two runners in scoring position.
Sadie Britt then came through and hit a two RBI double to cut the lead to 3-2 before the rally and inning ended with a strikeout.
The Lady Hawks got one run back. A leadoff double came back to bite Bowie. After retiring the next two batters, the next one hit a single to drive in the runner to make it 4-2 for Iowa Park.
Bowie’s bats were going from the previous inning. Victoria Cox hit a one out single and Chloe Kinney followed with a double to put two runners on base.
After a strikeout, Klump came through with a single that drove in both runners to tie the game up at 4-4.
While the first four innings were competitive back-and-forth, with the Lady Rabbits grabbing the most recent momentum, the Lady Hawks broke the game open in the fifth inning.
Two singles, two doubles, four walks and a fielding error amounted to six runs score for Iowa Park to go up 10-4.
Lightning came during this time and the game was delayed until it was picked up the next day on Wednesday.
Despite having several hours to reset, the way the previous inning had gone seemed to have zapped the oomph out of Bowie’s bats.
Britt got on base thanks to an error with one out, but it did not lead to anything in the fifth inning.
The Lady Hawks seemed to pick up right where they left off the previous day in the sixth inning.
Two singles, a double, a triple and a walk allowed Iowa Park to score four more runs to put the team up 14-4.
The Lady Rabbits needed to score one run to prevent the game from ending early due to run-rule.
Kinney got on base thanks to an error at first base. Two batters later, Klump hit a single to put two runners on base with two outs, with the lead runner in scoring position.
Unfortunately, the next batter struck out to end the game.
The Lady Hawks won 14-4.
