SUNBRIGHT | It was close for a while, but Oneida's offense was ultimately too much for the homestanding Tigers to handle here Thursday, as the Lady Indians won by run rule, 28-13, with the score more closely resembling a football game than a softball game.
The Lady Indians put up six runs in the top of the second inning, but the game was still tied after the Tigers tacked on five runs in the bottom half. A seven-run third inning gave Oneida control, and the Lady Indians then put 10 more runs on the board in the fourth.
Oneida racked up 14 hits in the game, and pretty much everyone got in on the action in some form or fashion.
Chelsey Jeffers drove in five runs, leading in that category. Kelsey Pike and Gracey Losey each had monster games, with four RBIs and five runs scored apiece. Abby Long had three RBIs and scored three runs. Julia Lay had two RBIs and scored three runs, and Keegan Sexton had two RBIs and scored two runs.
Shayla Shoemaker also had an RBI, and Prayleigh Welch scored three runs.
Pike had a home run in the game. Losey had a pair of doubles, while Jeffers and Long had extra-base hits as well.
Losey was the winning pitcher, going all four innings.
The game was the third win in four tries for the Lady Indians.
