BHS pounds Prep in girls fastpitch

The Spartans held Seattle Prep scoreless until the seventh inning in a largely one-sided fastpitch softball affair last week at home.

Bainbridge scored a run in each of the first two innings, then piled on four more runs in the fourth enroute to an 8-1 victory.

Bainbridge opened the scoring in the first when Ruby Raymundo walked, stole second and scored on a single by Anna Kozlosky.

Spartan hurler Malia Peato escaped a one-out, runners on first and third when Raymundo picked the runner off third on a disputed call. Peato recorded a strikeout for the final out of the inning.

In the fourth, a two-out double by Miranda Grogger, an RBI single by Ellen Owen and a two-run homer by Raymundo pushed the score to 5-0 in favor of the Spartans in the March 27 matchup.

Bainbridge added a run in the fifth inning on singles by Kozlosky, Grace Colburn and an RBI single by Natalie Gillatt.

The inning ended on a bizarre call by the umpires.

With the bases loaded and one out, the umpires failed to call the infield fly rule on a pop up to third base. When the fielder dropped the pop fly the runners all attempted to advance (as they should given the apparent error and lack of a call for the infield fly rule). The runner from third was thrown out at the plate. After the play was over the infield fly rule was invoked and the batter was called out as well.

A two-run single by Leah Baker in the sixth closed the scoring for Bainbridge.

Grogger pitched the seventh for the Spartans and surrendered a lead-off home run but survived an error and a hit with help from Raymundo — who caught a Prep runner stealing with her second great throw of the game.

Peato went six innings in the circle for BI (1 H, 0 R, 11 Ks, 0 BB).

Raymundo finished with 2-for-3 batting, a home run, two RBIs and three runs.

Kozlosky went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run.

Grace Colburn was 3-for-4 at the plate, while Grogger was 1-of-1 with a double and a run.

Baker was also 1-for-1 for BHS, with two RBIs.

Gillatt finished at 2-for-4, with two RBIs.

The win pushed the Spartans’ season record to 3-2 (3-1 Metro League).
