Lady Rabbits lose on the road

Published

on

KP Rutherford can’t believe the umpire’s call as she thought she got the tag on the base runner.

The Bowie Lady Rabbits let the game get away from them at Jacksboro on Friday.
The Lady Tigers won 10-0 after five innings due to run-rule against the Lady Rabbits.
Bowie was coming off a loss against Henrietta, but the team had been competing better and even won two of its last four games.
The first game against Jacksboro also had gone only five innings, but the Lady Tigers scored a district high 20 runs in the game.
With Bowie playing better, the team was hoping it could compete better and at least avoid losing by run-rule like it had been against good teams.
The first two innings saw the Lady Rabbits defense shut Jacksboro down to keep them in the game despite not having much success with their bats.
Pitcher Kaylie Kinney allowed a walk and a single to get on base in the first inning, but came through with a groundout to shortstop to get out of that jam.
In the second inning, a fielding error in the outfield that put a runner on second base with two outs did not morph into anything horrific for Bowie’s defense. A groundout to second base and a strikeout followed to end the scoring chance.
Unfortunately, the third inning is when the luck ran out for the Lady Rabbits’ defense.
After walking two batters with one out and forcing a groundout, it looked like Kinney and Bowie would get out of the jam again. A groundball to the shortstop resulted in an error that allowed one run to score.
The next batter hit a fly ball to right field then resulted in another fielding error that allowed two more runs to score to put Jacksboro up 3-0. Thankfully, another fly ball into the outfield was caught for out three.
The Lady Rabbits got their first hit in the fourth inning with Serenity Klump hitting a single. Unfortunately, it did not lead to anything for Bowie.
The Lady Tigers followed up the third inning with a fourth inning the Lady Rabbits would like to forget.
Five singles, a triple, a walk and a fielding error allowed Jacksboro to add six runs to its lead as it broke open the game 9-0.
Bowie’s offense could not answer besides Sadie Britt getting hit by a pitch with one out in the fifth inning.
The Lady Tigers entered the inning needing to score one run to end the game due to run-rule.
A one out single was the beginning of the end. The base runner then stole second base before her teammate drove her in with a single to end the game.
Jacksboro won 10-0.
