Spartans stop Braves in five

Bainbridge blasted Bishop Blanchet 12-0 in girls fastpitch softball in Seattle early last week.

The game closed in a fifth-inning mercy finish, and the outcome was never really in doubt for the unbeaten Spartans.

After a scoreless first inning, Bainbridge opened a 5-0 lead in the second and scored two more runs in the third.

A five-run fourth inning followed to ice the scoring at 12-0.

Katie Raben battered the Braves from the mound, and gave up just four hits while striking out eight.

Bainbridge spread the hits around like peanut butter on a cracker.

Deahna King, especially, laid it on thick. She went 2-for-2 with a double and three RBIs.

Emily Schneider went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, and Riley Gregoire was 2-for-3 with two RBIs.

Erin Kinney went 1-for-4 with a home run and an RBI.

Emma Lindsay went 1-for-3 for the Spartans, with two RBIs, and Roxanne Edenholm finished 1-for-1.

Samantha Shanahan, the losing pitcher for Blanchet, was the biggest bright spot for the Braves batting. She went three-for-three.

Bainbridge improved to 7-0 with the win (5-0 Metro League).
