  • Lady Green gets leg up in CKL

  • Lady Green had a lot to play for Friday night with Haven visiting at the Green Sports Complex. It was Senior Night, and a sweep would put PHS in the CKL driver’s seat. The Frogs took both games in convincing, run-rule fashion: 11-0 in the opener and 10-0 in the nightcap.
    Pratt made a statement in the very first inning, plating 9 runs on 7 hits to seize control of the match. Lauren Rambat singled to lead off. Savanah Buntemeyer, Brooke Theis, Kelsey Smith-Potter, Dakota Jones, Rambat (again) and Brittnee Hill also struck baseknocks in the frame. Hill, Bailey Gillig and Bre Becker each also reached via the BB or the HPB as Lady Green had the merry-go-round going in the first inning.
    With southpaw Brittnee Hill tossing a 2-hit shutout at the Wildcats, that was all the runs Pratt would need, but not all they would get. In the 3rd, Hill walked and Gillig was plunked again. Savanah Buntemeyer then drove one into the gap for a 2-run double, putting Pratt up 11-0. After five innings, the game was Pratt’s.
    After the Senior Day festivities in between games, the Lady Greenbacks picked up right where they left off— posting a 6-spot in the opening stanza to jump in front again. Rambat again led off with a sharp single to center. Hill sac bunted, and Rambat raced all the way to third when no Wildcats covered the bag. Gillig singled, Becker doubled, Buntemeyer doubled, Smith-Potter picked up a ribbie on a groundout.
    With 2-out, nobody on, Dakota Jones got Lady Green started again with a base rip. Brooke Theis and Destani Garten followed with hits, Rambat walked and Hill helped herself with an RBI single. When the dust cleared at the end of inning one, Pratt was up 6-0.
    Haven got a little more going offensively against Hill in game two, but the Frog defense was there when they were needed. Kelsey Smith-Potter snagged a couple of screaming liners at the sharp corner, RF Bailey Gillig made a tremendous diving catch and C Savanah Buntemeyer and SS Lauren Rambat cut down a would-be Haven base-stealer to squelch any possible Wildcat rallies.
    Scoring 4 more in the third gave PHS all the runs they would need to record their second run-rule victory of the night, 10-0 in five. With just one CKL loss, Pratt controls its own destiny in the CKL. If they take care of Kingman next Tuesday, they will win the CKL.
