The Spartans slipped by West Seattle in a rain-shortened fastpitch softball battle 6-5 Tuesday at home.

Natalie Allen sparked the victory with a double and two RBIs, while Deahna King was the winning pitcher for the Spartans.

King gave up four hits across four innings but struck out six Wildcats in her second win of the season.

Bainbridge jumped to a 1-0 first-inning advantage in the soggy Metro League matchup.

West Seattle came back to tie the game in the second, but Bainbridge climbed back on top, 2-1, in the third.

Both teams added four more runs in the fourth, and West Seattle failed to add any additional offense in the top of the fifth as Katie Raben came in for relief for the Spartans and earned the save.

Allen went 1-for-2 in the contest, while fellow Spartan Kate Kinney went 1-for-2 with an RBI.

Charli Elliott went 1-for-2 for West Seattle and had an RBI.

With the win, Bainbridge improved to 2-0 in Metro (3-0 overall).
