J-D softball takes advantage of CBA mistakes

Rams win league showdown over Brothers, 9-3

Even though Fulton carried a 4-1 record into this game with the Rams, it hardly mattered. In the bottom of the third, J-D erupted for nine runs, and followed that up with a seven-run fourth inning to make it 16-0.

Nine different Rams players drove in runs as part of a 20-hit attack. Robens, with three hits and four RBIs, led the way, while Devereaux had a single, double and three RBIs. Thompson and Erica Siegel each drove in two runs as Maggie Austin had three hits and four runs scored. Keeler (who pitched six innings and struck out eight) and Cantor also had three-hit outings.

CBA wasted little time jumping on Homer, scoring twice in the first inning and three times in the next two frames for an 8-0 lead, more than enough for Sheridan, who held the Trojans to three hits and struck out 10.

Valerino tore it up at the plate, going three-for-five, including a pair of doubles, and earning four RBIs. Magnareli added two hits and two RBis, with Sheridan and Ariana Cavallaro each driving in single runs.

In Saturday’s action, the Brothers went to Cortland, where it trailed late in the contest before some clutch production at the plate helped beat the Purple Tigers 5-4.

An early 2-0 lead vanished when Cortland got three runs off Sheridan in the bottom of the third, and added a run in the fifth. Now trailing 4-2, the Brothers used a run in the sixth to get close and, in the seventh, put across the tying and go-ahead runs.

Sheridan blanked the Purple Tigers in the bottom of the seventh and earned the win, adding 14 more strikeouts to her total as she held Cortland to five hits.

J-D, meanwhile, struggled in a 7-3 defeat to Rochester Mercy. It was close before Mercy, up 3-2, added three runs in the fifth, more than the Rams could overcome as Keeler gave up 10 hits.
