Spartans handle Hale in fastpitch

The Spartans stuffed a 4-0 cushion against Nathan Hale with six more runs in the fourth inning to rout the Raiders 10-4 last week in girls fastpitch softball.

Bainbridge scored a run in the first, two more in the second, and one in the third while blanking Nathan Hale for an early 4-0 advantage.

The Bainbridge bats really came alive in the bottom of the fourth, however, and the Spartans led 10-0 going into the fifth inning.

The Raiders rallied for four runs, but the Spartan defense stiffened and Bainbridge picked up another home win to stay unbeaten on the season with a 5-0 record (3-0 Metro League).

Alison Reichert was the winning pitcher for the Spartans and finished with four strikeouts.

She was also swung a mighty bat for the Spartans, and went 3-for-4 with a double and three RBIs.

Riley Gregoire was 2-for-3 with an RBI for Bainbridge, and

Katie Raben went 1-for-3 with two RBIs.

Nathan Hale was led by Heather Weaver-Lopez (2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs) and Taylor Carr (2-for-4 with two RBIs).
