Sneads Lady Pirates bounce back for 2-1 win over Paxton

Hannah Stephens gets in front of a grounder for Sneads Hannah Stephens gets in front of a grounder for Sneads Mark Skinner

The Lady Pirates were eager to hit the diamond Friday night after a one-day delay due to weather. They wanted to erase the bitter taste in their mouth left by the loss to Holmes County. For this pivotal game, Sneads coach Shawn Graham sent his ace, Marissa Baxter to the circle. Baxter went the distance, giving up no earned runs on four scattered hits, three walks and struck out three batters.

Sneads drew first blood in the top of the first inning when Abby Perkins led off with a double, followed by Michaela Edenfield drawing an intentional walk with one out. Kiara Garrett singled to load the bases for Taylor Lanphere’s fielder’s choice that scored Perkins but got Edenfield going to third. A groundout ended the inning with Sneads leading 1-0. A hit and a walk went for nil in the bottom of the inning for Paxton. 

Sneads was kept off the scoreboard in the second inning with a leadoff single by Hannah Stephens the only offense. Paxton was three up, three down.  Sneads threatened in the third inning with a leadoff single by Marissa Baxter, followed by Michaela Edenfield reaching on an error. Kiara Garrett hit into a fielder’s choice with no runs crossing home plate. A two-out walk was no harm, no foul for the Lady Pirates as a zero went on the board for Paxton. 

In the fourth inning, Lacee Glover singled to get things going but was out on an attempted steal of second. A ground out and a fly out kept the game at 1-0 with Paxton coming up empty in the bottom half. Taylor Reese Howell led off for Sneads in the fifth with a double but an oops play had her out when she slipped past second and a quick tag got her. The Lady Pirates Sneads picked up their second and game-winning run in the top of the fifth inning in grand fashion. Marissa Baxter went yard on an 0-2 pitch over the right field fence.  A walk and an error was all of Paxton’s offense in the bottom of the frame. 

Sneads went down in order in the top of the sixth with a walk, hit batter and single coming up with one run in the bottom of the frame to narrow the lead to 2-1.

Sneads went quietly in the seventh inning with a goose egg for Paxton cementing the Lady Pirates a win and a chance to move on to semi regionals.
