Glenelg 8, Reservoir 1
The Gladiators put two runs on the board in the first inning, capitalizing on a hard hit to the outfield by Mandy Bendix and that turned out to be all they needed to pull out the victory. For insurance purposes, Glenelg did tack on four more runs in the fourth and another run apiece in the sixth and seventh.
In the fourth inning, Leah Allen (2-3, 3 RBI, run, stolen base) knocked in two and Marissa Saglimbeni drove in the other two courtesy of an inside-the-park home run. Allen got her other RBI in the sixth and Sharon Mielke plated Faith Kujawa (double) in the seventh.
Bendix pitched for Glenelg and struck out five, while allowing four hits and no earned runs.
Reservoir got four strikeouts from Emily Wang on the mound and Tara Thompson scored the team’s lone run in the bottom of the seventh.
