The Lady Arrows scored six first-inning runs, including four on a bases-loaded home run by senior catcher Carly Brown. Pike Central scored a pair of runs in the sec- ond inning on a two-run homer by junior second baseman Emily Carnahan, then plated another in the third inning on a run-scor- ing single by senior pitch- er Peyton Sorgius to close to within 6 -3. A fter Sullivan added two runs in the bottom of the third inning to extend its lead to 8 -3, the Lady Chargers staged a two-out rally in the fifth inning, sending 10 batters to the plate and plating five runs to tie the score at 8 -8. A fter Lady Arrows ju- nior pitcher Maclynne Steele retired Pike Cen- tral senior first baseman Demi Croak on an infield grounder and senior third baseman Jalah Barnes on a fly ball to sopho- more centerfielder Asia Povlin, back-to-back sin- gles by Sorgius and soph- omore right fielder Lau- ren Vaughn and an error on a grounder hit by se- nior catcher Lexi Halbrad- er loaded the bases. A bases-loaded walk to Emily Carnahan, a two- run single by senior cen- terfielder Shelbi Pipes and back-to-back run-scoring singles by senior short- stop Audra Stone and ju- nior Hannah Carnahan pulled the Lady Chargers even at 8 -8 before Steele got Croak – the 10th bat- ter to step to the plate in the inning – to ground out. In the bottom of the sixth inning, Brown drew a lead-off walk, then came home on Eberhardt's blast over the left field fence. "We out-hit them, but out of the 11 hits they got, five of them were doubles and two were home runs," Pike Central head coach Rick Weisman said. "Pey- ton had to get the ball up a little bit because the um- pire wasn't giving her the low strike, and they start- ed tattooing her quite a bit, and the wind was blow- ing out." Sorgius went the dis- tance for the Lady Char- gers, allowing 10 runs – six of which were earned – on 11 hits while walk- ing four and striking out three. Pike Central fell to 2-1 with the loss. "I think we learned from it," Weisman said. "I think it was probably good for us, to show us that we have to show up. I'd like to play them again. And maybe we will somewhere down the road."
