Following big win, late score costs Lady Rebels

By Daniel Jones

After a huge victory over the Pleasant Hill Eagles, the Ebarb Lady Rebels softball team stumbled late on April 2 to Evans, losing 2-1.

Ebarb got on the scoreboard early after Raeghan Lewing doubled, scoring one run.  Evans answered back in the fourth inning with one run and then the game winner in the sixth.

Evans pitchers struck out eleven, while Ebarb’s Lewing sat down three via strikeout.  On the mound she surrendered two runs on four hits over seven innings on the mound, but also led the team in batting going three-for-three.

Earlier, on March 27, the girls were in rare form taking out the Pleasant Hill Lady Eagles 26-0.

Lewing didn’t allow a single run and only one hit over the three innings pitched.

Autumn Wyatt put up four hits on five at-bats.  She singled in the first, singled in the second, homered in the third, and singled in the third.  She was one triple away from hitting for the cycle.

Ebarb scored an astounding 10 runs in the second inning with Bryn Remedies, Averie Meshell, Camryn Cartinez, Wyatt, Lewing, and Kiana Phathong all batting in RBIs.  The Lady Rebels put up two home runs, with Kaylyn Sepulvado hitting the other in the first.

On the mound, Lewing allowed one hit by PLEASANT HILL #33 and zero runs over the three innings.  She struck out five.

Previous to that, the Lady Rebels took a late lead over Red River on March 26, winning 19-8.

Phathong went four-for-five at the plate singling in the first, fourth, and sixth.  She also had one home run in the sixth.

Lewing drove in one early on a single, and by the fourth inning, Red River had everything tied up at seven.

The sixth inning was especially productive for the Rebels with a total of 10 runs being registered.  Contributing batters included Averie Meshell, Selina Wilhite, Bryn Remedies, Lewing, and Phathong.

On the mound was Lewing, who allowed seven hits and eight runs over six innings and nine Ks.

The Lady Rebels put up a total of 15 hits in the game and three errors.  Phathong led with three of the ten bases stolen on the day.
