Lady Eagle softball overpowered by BEA

The Tyrone Lady Eagles softball team traveled to Wingate on Tuesday for a battle with perennial District 6 power Bald Eagle Area.
The game started with Ashley Pennabaker grounding out to shortstop, Kim Cherry striking out and Megan Turiano grounding out to the pitcher in the top half of the first for Tyrone.
In the bottom of the first BEA scored five times. Cortney Switzer walked, Ashley McClain had a single and then Lauryn Weaver hit one out over the left field fence to make the score 3-0. Brooke Klinefelter walked, Lady Eagle starter Brooke Garbinsky struck out Karley Riser, and Lindsay Confer and Whitney Gindol walked to load the bases. Cara Becker had a single to drive in a run and with the bases still loaded Kasey Corl walked to bring in another run. Cortney Switzer struck out and Ashley McClain grounded out to shortstop to end the inning.
“The first inning set the tone for the day,” said Tyrone softball coach Lois Loncher, “and it was a hole that we could not get out of.
Kim Cherry broke up Becker’s no-hit bid in the fourth inning with a base hit in the hole between shortstop and third. Becker struck out seven and walked one in getting the win.
Brooke Garbinsky struck out two and walked eight, and Megan Turiano fanned five and walked four for the Lady Eagles.
“We did some good things and other things so-so,” explained Loncher. “We did make some contact and forced them to field the ball.”
Tyrone plays Penns Valley this afternoon at Penns Valley. This is a make up game from last week and will start at 4:30 p.m.
