Cardinals crush tigers in showdown
With seven runs in the sixth inning of their May 2 game at Woodlake, the Lindsay softball team remained undefeated in road games with a 13-5 victory over the Tigers.
With a 10-3 league record, Lindsay remained in second place in the east Sequoia League, two games behind Sierra Pacific with only two games remaining in the regular season.
For Woodlake, losing their 12th game of the season wasn’t nearly as devastating as the loss they suffered early in the game when junior shortstop Brenda Acosta broke her leg going for a fly-ball in shallow center field.
Following the injury, the Tigers gave up nine unanswered runs in the fifth and sixth innings to the high powered Lindsay offense.
Woodlake rallied for three runs in the bottom of the seventh but Lindsay pitcher Lina Padilla was able to finish off the complete game victory having given up only one earned run on the day.
Padilla’s sixth complete game improves her season record to 10-6.
The Lindsay offense was led by Christina Castro who went 2-4 with a double and two runs batted in.
Emely Rojas was 2-3 and scored twice, while Destiny reached base safely three times and stole two bases, both leading to runs scored.
The Cardinals travel to Corcoran next then close out the season on Thursday, May 9 at home against Strathmore.
