The Brownwood Lady Lions rebounded from Tuesday’s defeat at Liberty Hill — which snapped a 27-game district win streak — with a 9-1 victory over Lampasas in 8-3A action Friday night.
The Lady Lions (9-9-1, 2-1) racked up 13 hits on the offensive end — including three doubles. Sydney Laws struck out 11 batters and surrendered eight hits, while the defense did not commit an error.
“It felt really good to finally beat a good team,” said Lady Lions head coach Amanda Sheffield. “Our bats also came to life, which was good to see. We were more aggressive on the bases tonight. They had a pretty good catcher but that didn’t stop us from being aggressive.”
The Lady Lions scored once in the bottom of the first inning on an RBI double by Alyson Finnigan that plated Cherita George, who also doubled.
Brownwood extended its lead to 5-0 in the second inning on a two-RBI double by George, followed by a two-RBI double from Finnigan.
Lampasas scratched its only run across the plate in the top of the fifth inning, but the Lady Lions immediately nullified the run in the bottom of the frame as Shelbi Winstead, who doubled, scored on a wild pitch.
The Lady Lions added three runs in their final at-bat in the bottom of the sixth as George, who led off the inning with her third hit, scored on an error. Kristen Fuentes followed with an RBI single and Ashley Gomez drove in a run with an RBI ground out.
Brownwood will return to action at 7 p.m. Tuesday as the Lady Lions travel to Gatesville.
