Davenport scored 10 runs in the third inning to go up by eight and kept Schenevus just far enough away the length of the game to take a three-run, 22-19, win in an offensively fueled game at Davenport on Saturday.
Justine Lubbers led Davenport with a two-run triple in the third and another triple in the fifth. She had two RBIs and scored four runs. Allison Pierce had three hits and four runs scored. Kate Whipple had two hits and three RBIs.
Schenevus’ Alexis Hults hit a grand slam in the fourth to plate all of the team’s runs that inning to cut the deficit to 12-8.
She brought in Tori Biegel, Hannah Osborne and Patricia Biegel. She also hit another home run in the game along with teammate Patricia Biegel.
Davenport scored two in the bottom of the frame to make it 14-8. Schenevus (2-2) had two more big innings, scoring five in the fifth to come within one, only to have Davenport add four more.
“We would score and they would counter,” Schenevus head coach Ron Spranger said.
Schenevus scored six in the sixth for the one-run lead, 19-18, and Davenport again scored four then kept Schenevus from any runs for the first time since the first inning.
The teams committed nine errors each and there were a lot of walks.
Schenevus is scheduled to play at Morris on Monday at 4:30 p.m.
Franklin 21, Edmeston 7
Alyssa Nowhitney threw the complete game with catcher Rachel Cobane, and Franklin trounced Edmeston on the road Saturday.
Each team had six hits, and Edmeston (1-2) had at least five errors, in a game played during 35-degree weather with a wind chill at least 10 degrees lower.
“It was a game of attrition to see who could stay warmest the longest,” Edmeston coach Kim Robinson said. “It was a tough game. A lot of walks.”
Edmeston’s Cassie Menendez hit her second home run of the year. Lizzy Williams, who pitched three innings in relief of Madison Reinert, had a triple. Madison Bolton and Annika DeVries each hit a double.
Edmeston is scheduled to play Laurens on Monday.
