Louisville 2, Lake 1

The Louisville Leopards earned a hard fought 2-1 victory over the visiting Lake Blue Streaks Monday Evening at the Diamond of Dreams. With the victory, the #4 ranked Lady Leopards are now 14-1 on the year.

Beatty's Sports Louisville Leopards Flashy Hat Fall 2016Starting Pitcher Shae Thomas pitched the first 5 1/3 innings, gave up just 1 run on 6 hits, and struck out 5 to keep the Leopards in the contest. With the game tied at 1-1, Sarah Cantley came on in relief pitching 1 2/3 shutout innings, giving up just 1 hit, and striking out 3 to earn the victory. Cantley is now 11-1 for the campaign.

On offense, the Louisville bats had difficulty solving the riddle of Lake Pitcher Jessica LeBeau. She retired the first 10 Leopards hitters in a row before Teagan Rice doubled on a hard hit ground ball to left field with 1 out in the fourth. The ball took a nasty hop and leapt past the Lake left fielder all the way to the fence. Rice ended up on third, but was substituted for courtesy runner Ashley Zifer after a hard slide into the bag.

Next, Ollis reached on a fielder’s choice as the Blue Streak defense elected to hold Zifer on at third. It didn’t matter, the next pitch was high and smacked hard into the backstop. Zifer slid head first into home on the wild pitch and when the cloud of dust settled the scoreboard read 1-1.

Rice also started the manufacturing of the winning run in the sixth inning. She battled back from an 0-2 count to draw a walk and then advanced to second on a passed ball. After an out, Cantley stepped in and ended up striking out. But the pitch offered at was dropped by the catcher. Cantley started running to first and the ball was overthrown into right field allowing her to reach base and Rice to score from second base.

That’s all the Leopards would need as Cantley struck out the side in the top of the seventh to give Louisville their 14th win in 15 games. 

Lake (10-4) was led by LeBeau who pitched all 6 innings of a complete game, gave up 1 earned run on 2 hits, and struck out 13 in a hard fought losing effort. Ellie Jackson had the only other hit for LHS off LeBeau in the fifth. 

The Blue Streaks only run of the game came via a solo homer off the bat of Emily Ickes in the opening inning. Maggie Pertee finished 2-for-3 for Lake who out-hit Louisville 7-2 during the potential District Semifinal preview.
