Melbourne Demons Women Division 2 vs. Springvale - Won 9 - 6
Another beautiful day at Surrey Park as the sun was shining and a 24° day facing the Springvale Lions who have been playing some good baseball and were tied with us for 2nd place until a thrilling game today whereby we came out on top with an excellent showing everyone contributing in some way to this solid win.
4 up 3 down the first dig with a couple of good plays by Megan at short and a strike out whilst we came back with a couple of hits and a run in the bottom of the 1st for a good start to the game. The second dig they scored one and we scored one to stay on top. The third dig was much the same as we both tacked on a run each with the score now 3-2 our way after 3 innings of good baseball. Top of 4 they scored 2 to go ahead whereby the Mighty Lady D’s pounded the ball for 6 runs in the bottom of the dig on 5 hits. Top of 5 saw the Lions come back with another 2 runs as we had loaded the bases in the bottom and were ready to strike again but the umpire called time and game. A great game of baseball by both clubs today with a good defensive effort by Glenno at 2nd, Bec at 1st, Jess at 3rd,Megan and Dominique at short and the outfield consisting of Jess, Kate and Alice who made her debut with the 1sts this week, well done by all.
Dominique got the start for the Lady D’s and went 4 innings giving up 3 earned runs on 3 hits with 8 walks, 3 hpb, and 2 strike outs, a great effort throwing 115 pitches, well done Nique. Megan came on in relief and worked 1 inning on the mound for the Lady D’s giving up 2 earned runs on 0 hits with 3 walks, 0 hpb, and 0 strike outs, a good effort closing out the game.
We are tied for second on the ladder with Moorabbin so still in the hunt for the flag with a real test coming up next week against Footscray on their home ground who beat undefeated Werribee.
