Holy Names Academy outlasted Bainbridge 6-4 in girls varsity fastpitch softball to take the Metro League championship title at the Southwest Athletic Complex Friday.

Holy Names scored a pair of unearned runs in the top of the seventh on a two-out infield error by the Spartans to break a 4-4 tie. The Spartans put a runner on in the bottom of the seventh, but was unable to pull out a win, losing the Metro Championship game, 6-4.

Holy Names and Bainbridge each scored in the first, with the Spartan run coming on an RBI triple by Maddie Loverich, scoring Kensey Baker.

The Cougars countered with a pair of runs in the second and a single run in the fifth to build a 4-1 lead.

In the bottom of the fifth Bainbridge took advantage of a pair of errors by Holy Names — dropped pop foul fly balls — to rally and tie the score. The big hit was a two-out, two-run single by Ruby Raymundo.

Peato pitched seven innings (10 hits, 4 ER, 5 Ks, 2 BB).

Loverich finished 2-for-4 at the plate, with a triple, RBI and a run.

Peato went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run. Lassoff was 2-for-3 with a run; Baker, 2-for-4 with a run; and Raymundo, 1-for-3, with two RBIs.

Bainbridge entered district play this week as the No. 2 seed from the Metro League, starting with a winner-to-state game Tuesday against West Seattle.
