Glenelg 7, Centennial 3
The Gladiators prevailed in a back-and-forth game, getting great support from its pitchers Mandy Bendix (5 innings, 7 strikeouts) and Colleen Regan (2 innings, 3 strikeouts). The seven strikeouts were a season-high for Bendix.
Glenelg’s duo had to be so good because Centennial’s pitcher Emily Bowman was on the top of her game as well, striking out seven and holding the Gladiators to just one run over the first four innings.
It was in the fifth inning, though, that the Gladiators’ bats came alive. Leah Allen hit a two-run inside-the-park home run to highlight the five-run outburst, while Brooke Redmond (2-RBI single) and Marissa Saglimbeni (RBI single) drove in runs as well. On the game, Bendix went 3-4 at the plate and Allen went 2-3.
In the loss, Centennial showed a lot of fight. The Eagles held the lead for the first four innings, scoring runs in the second and third innings. Later, after falling behind, Centennial added scores in the fifth and seventh innings to keep things interesting.
Bowman had a strong day at the plate by going 2-3 with a triple and a SAC fly to score Katie Judd in the fifth. Judd (2-3) delivered a triple at the plate and made six defensive put outs in the field.
