14U Bomber's Softball - March 2023

Erin starts her 9th season of softball for the 14U LCGSA Bombers & will play twice a week this season instead of 10 games over a weekend twice a month

The Raptors are the other LC 14U team with Haley & Charlotte as pitchers

Haley was in Alex's 1st Girl Scout troop, Wednesday leads off & strikes out

Erin bats second and hits a routine groundout to shortstop

The SS makes a bad throw, pulls Charlotte off the bag & Erin is safe, E6

Erin will score the 1st run of a 4 run-ruled inning w/only 1 out made

It is a full swing bunt and she beats the slow arcing throw to 1st

The throw goes over the first baseman's glove & Erin heads to 2nd

The throw back to Haley is off target and Erin gets to third base

She is the 1st run in a second four run run-ruled inning w/2 outs made

Erin pitches the 3rd inning and faces Haley in her first at-bat

She leads off with a nice base hit to right-center field

Erin will leave them stranded by stiking out the next three batters

Bombers beat their sister team, the Raptors, 8-0 for the 1st win of the season
