LAWRENCEBURG – An
inability to put opponents away in the late innings jumped up to bite
Lawrenceburg softball again Tuesday night.
Now 5-7 overall,
Lady Tigers fell to 1-4 in Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference play
with a 7-5 loss to previously winless, injury-wracked Batesville.
Bulldogs broke a 2-2
tie in the top of the sixth inning, scoring three times off hard-luck
losing pitcher Ashby Foster (seven innings, seven runs, five earned,
eight hits, five strikeouts, three walks) to take a 5-2 lead.
Katie Thomas led off
the Batesville sixth with a double to the gap in left-center field.
Rebecca Roell and Meg Liter followed with singles, with Thomas
scoring on Liter's hit just left of second base.
