Grimes baseball rallies past Marcellus

Softball Cobras win pair of one-run decisions

Not content with that, the Cobras hosted Port Byron a day later and made four different comebacks to pull out a 9-8, eight-inning victory over the Panthers.

In the first four innings alone, Grimes trailed 2-0, 5-4 and 7-6, and every time roared back, forcing a 7-7 tie by the end of the fourth.

They stayed that way until the top of the eighth, when Port Byron inched back in front 8-7. One more time, the Cobras would come back, pushing across the tying and winning runs in the bottom of that frame.

Four players – Ware, Ashley Morgan, Nicole Bourdon and Lauren Vaughn – had two hits apiece. Morgan and Donati each drove in two runs as Driscoll added an RBI. Donati pitched the first four innings before Ware took over in the fifth, only allowing one run the rest of the way.

Grimes’ win streak ended last Friday with a 12-4 defeat to Marcellus, the Mustangs getting runs in each of the first five innings.

Driscoll, in defeat, managed two hits and an RBI as Claire Williams also drove in a run. Tabby McBride and Meghan Witkowski each hit home runs for Marcellus as McBride added a triple and double and finished with five RBIs.
