Bainbridge swamped Lakeside 20-2 in girls fastpitch softball at home.

The Spartans led 8-0 at the end of the first inning and added on another six runs in the second for a 14-0 lead.

Bainbridge held the Lions scoreless again in the third, while adding another six runs.

Up 19-0, the Spartans seemingly tried to put themselves out of the inning by bunting repeatedly with the bases loaded.

Even then, Lakeside couldn’t seem to get a break. Lions catcher Ursula Bertram picked up one bunt that dropped just in front of the plate for what looked like an easy out. Her foot never touched home plate, however, all the while the Spartans brought another player home, and the gap grew to 20-0.

Alison Reichert pitched the first three innings for Bainbridge, and struck out eight Lions while allowing just one hit.

Natalie Allen came in to pitch the next two innings, and Lakeside got on the scoreboard with two runs. Bertram was crucial to Lakeside’s limited offense. She was 1-for-2 and knocked in a run.

The Lions’ offense ended there, though, and the game was mercy ruled after Lakeside failed to score in the fifth, 20-2.

Allen finished with three strikeouts for the Spartans.

Riley Gregoire went 4-for-4, with three RBIs.

Alexina Boudreaux was 2-for-2, with an RBI.

Kate Kinney went 2-for-5, with four RBIs, and her sister Erin Kinney went 3-for-3 with three RBIs.

Raben also helped out on offense. She finished on 2-for-3 batting and three RBIs.

Deahna King came up big, as well. She went 2-for-3, with a double and two RBIs. Fellow Spartan Emily Schneider was 3-for-4, with two RBIs.

With the win, Bainbridge’s record moved to 12-1 overall (10-1 Metro League). Totals include forfeits by Cleveland and Rainier Beach.
