Bayside Chatter: Silver Bay girls go 2-1 over past week
The Mariner softball team won a pair of games last week before falling 13-2 to the Moose Lake-Willow River Rebels Monday.
They opened with a come from behind eighth inning 8-7 win over the South Ridge Panthers May 10 and then defeated the Ely Timberwolves 8-3 May 11.
The Mariners came back from a 6-0 deficit to defeat South Ridge. Everly Bauck drew a one out walk in the bottom of the seventh, went to third on a Jesse Ketola single and scored when the relay went into the Mariner dugout, which tied the game at seven. After putting down the Panthers 1-2-3 in the top of the eighth, the Mariners went to work again.
With one out Megan Maxey singled and slid under a tag at third following a Cora Carter single. After Carter stole second, the Panthers elected to walk Kayla Klofstad to load the bases for the force out. Callie Klemmer blew apart that strategy with a hit over the right fielder's head to end the game.
Carter pitched eight innings to pick up the victory giving up seven runs on 10 hits. Celia Olesiak took the loss for the Panthers giving up eight runs on 15 hits. She struck out 10 Mariner batters. The Panthers scored four times in the top of the first and added two more in the fifth. The Mariners pushed five across the plate in the fifth one each in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings.
Maxey and Klemmer each went 3-for-5, Klofstad was 2-for-4 and Brooke McMillen and Jocelyn Russell each went 2-for-5. McMillen had a double and a triple and scored twice. Klofstad had a two run homer in the fifth.
Against Ely the Mariners gave up two runs in the top of the first, but came back with five in the bottom of the second. Carter allowed four singles in the first and one more hit the rest of the way. At one point she retired 14 straight batters.
Carter went 3-for-4 at the plate with a double, home run and three RBIs. McMillen and Hannah Thums each went 2-for-3. Maxey scored twice and Russell had two RBIs. Erika Mattson took the loss for Ely. The Mariners loaded the bases with two outs in the second with two walks and a hit batter. Then Russell, Maxey, Carter and Klofstad hit consecutive singles to drive in five runs.
The Rebels scored in every inning but the fifth. They led 7-1 after three and scored seven times with two outs. Bauck took the loss for the Mariners and Lilli Skelton had the win for Moose Lake.
