What made this more amazing was that Liverpool beat East 12-0 earlier in the week. It was only a 1-0 game when Liverpool started to get to East pitcher Kristen Burr in the bottom of the fourth, scoring four times. Then it knocked around Burr and reliever Kelsea Jimenez for seven more runs in the next two innings to get the margin to double digits.
Alicia Hansen, Kaylah Quilty and Peyton Bellrose all took turns hitting home runs, Bellrose adding a double as she produced four RBIs.
K.C. TenBroeck drove in two runs as Lauren Cerrone, Jenna Bush, McKenzie Harris and Jaimie Baller had one RBI apiece. Between them, Bellrose and fellow pitcher Dana Nicoletti produced a three-hit shutout, earning 13 total strikeouts.
Two days later, Liverpool went to Camillus, quite eager to face the same West Genesee side it lost to in a 9-8, 13-inning epic on April 25. The rematch didn’t take as long as the Warriors overcame a slow start to beat the Wildcats 8-4.
Trailing 3-0, Liverpool, facing a different WG pitcher (Jenna Amidon) than the first meeting, tied it with three runs in the top of the third. It then took a 4-3 lead with a run in the fifth before getting four runs in the seventh inning that proved to be the difference.
Bellrose, who shared pitching duties with Nicoletti, had a double and two RBIs, as did Cerrone, while Jenna Bush also drove in two runs.
