Beautz is the Comets only senior and she is one of three captains ,along with juniors Rachel Phillips and Kreis.
“To me, she (Beautz) is like an additional coach, she’s a coach on that field,” Catonsville coach Steve McCleary said. “Even though she is probably the best outfielder we have, we put her there (second base) to kind of shepherd that infield because it’s a young infield.”
Glen Burnie got its only other run in regulation in the fifth inning after Fangman led off with a double and scored three batters later on an run-scoring ground out by McCormick.
Catonsville, who opened the season with a 6-5 comeback win over Dulaney, after trailing 4-0 early, looked poised to do it again in the bottom of the sixth.
Delaney led off with a single and DiDomenico reached on an error to right field.
Kreis almost got out of the inning without any more damage after Beautz snagged a liner and she struck out Mandy Purzner, but Holly Soto reached on an infield hit to first base and the floodgates opened.
Fangman had an RBI single and Culley drove in two before Kaitlyn Gouty plated the final run.
Felicity Voss came on in relief to get the final out.
Culley struck out the side in the final inning, but admitted the damp and cold weather was troublesome.
“It’s actually pretty awful pitching in this kind of weather, but you go got to get used to if you are a pitcher,” she said. “It was more the ball was more wet and I couldn’t get a grip, but I figured it out.”
“We are kind of in the mode where we are going to go below the surface for six games and then we are going to see where we are,” McCleary said. “We figure by April 14, we will be through Lansdowne and Eastern Tech and we will know where we are.”
