Those may be great odds for gamblers, but they turned out to be an unlucky set of numbers for the Rainier Beach fastpitch softball team.

The Spartans sank the Vikings 20-1 in a mercy shortened Metro League matchup on Monday, April 7.

Bainbridge blasted to a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning, then tacked on six more runs in the second for a double-digit lead of 10-0.

The Spartans brought home another five runs in the third to pad their cushion to 15-0 before Rainier Beach responded with its only run of the contest in the top of the fourth inning.

Bainbridge added another five runs in the fourth, and shut out the Vikings in the top of the fifth, to seal the scoring at 20-1. The game was stopped in the fifth inning due to the 10-run mercy rule.

Alison Reichert was the winning pitcher for Bainbridge. She took the mound for three innings and left with four strikeouts.

Deahna King came in for Bainbridge in the fourth.

Emma Lindsay led the Spartan scoring attack. She went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs.

The victory improved Bainbridge’s record to 3-0 in the Metro (3-1 overall).
