Liberal began the day wanting to make improvement in  all phases of the game. Liberal opened up 1st inning going down in order. Starting pitcher Brittany Granger got two quick out but gave up a home run over left field fence for Hugoton's first run, but she bounced back and struck out the next batter to end the inning. In the top of sec. with one out Emily Castaneda singled  but the next two batters could not  punch out a hit. The bottom of the Hugoton got a base on balls, but the Redskins defense helped out Pitcher Granger with a defensive out and Brittany responded with two more strike outs to end the inning. Liberal still trailed 1-0.
3rd inning Liberal went down in order, and Hugoton put together their big inning. With one out they had two consecutive singles followed by a hit pitch and two walks help the eagles score three runs before the skins could put out the fire. Top of the 4th , the young redskins came back with 2 runs of their own . With one out Brittany Granger singled followed by a Hugoton error on shortstop gave the skins some life. Emily Castaneda answered with a double done right  field line to score both runners.  But the skins  could not follow it up and the next two batters went down. Liberal now trailed 5-2.
Bottom 4th- liberal again answered with their defense, with one out and two runners on base, the redskins outfielders went to work and made two nice catches to  end any threat from the eagles.
5th inning, both teams went down in order. Top of the 6th - liberal  with one out got a single by Stephanie Sanchez,
But her teammates came up empty to end the inning. Hugoton got bases loaded with one out and Liberals third baseman Esmeralda Garcia made two great fielding plays to dahs all hopes for the eagles scoring threat.
With one last hope the redskins got two runners on but with two outs could not get that clutch hit. Losing 5-2.

Coach Knott stated a very nice turn around defensively  from the other night . But we must keep other teams from having their big inning and we need to get more  timely hits to help ourselves when needed. Having just one error in 6 innings is a great building point .

Emily Castaneda was 2-3 with a 2b and one rbi.

(LP)Brittany granger went 6 innings/ 6k/4bb/2hp/ 8h/5 r/3 er.
