LP-Brittany Granger- 4 innings/13 runs/1k/4 bb/2 hp/7er

Liberal came out and hung with the Buffs early. 1st inning Liberal bats were still not finding the ball all three batters struck out. But they now turned to their defense. GC 1st two batters got on base with a single and a hit batter, the next batter ground out to short but an error by third gave the buffs two runs and they added two more before the redskins could end the inning. Trailing 4-0 the  redskins worked a solid offensive inning. A single to right by leadoff batter Emily Castaneda got the redskins going, the next batter flew out to 1st base and Katie Jennings was hit by pitch, a pass ball moved the runners to 3rd and 2nd. Callie Millsap stroked a double down right field line to score two runs for the skins. But a missed hit and run cost the redskins the inning as millsap was thrown out at third and the batter struck out. Trailing 4-2, the question now can they continue the momentum. Answer was  yes, Pitcher Brittany Ganger and teammates worked together to get three straight outs.
In the top of 3rd
The Redskins with one out Brittany Granger walked, Jordon Urban singled  and Alyshea Espinoza hit a  slow roller to pitcher forced Granger out at third, with two outs and runners at second and first the redskins need another ball in play, but a routine ball to the pitcher ended the scoring threat.
Bottom of 3rd  GC got 6 runs on 3 hits and 4 miscues by the defense, along with a double over the fence that was called a home run.. Now can the Skins respond trailing 10-2.GC pitcher Befort dug in and the Skins went down in order. Bottom of 4th Liberal's pitcher Brittany Granger ran in to control problems and walked 4 straight batters after one out to give gc all that they need to score 3 more runs. Trailing 13-2, with one last hope the redskins Gave it a try a hit batter started the inning but a strike out almost put the light out for the skins. Brittany Granger walked but tow back to back ground outs ended the game. Losing 13-2

Coach Knott stated the second inning our offensive execution was nice to see, but we still must make plays behind our pitcher and work together to get outs. When we bat we must learn that the pitchers will make changes we must adjust and keep our confidence when batting.

Abby Dart the Garden City freshman took charge from the first pitch and struck out 8 of the nine batters she faced for a no hitter and perfect game. Liberal bats were no match for the arm of Dart. GC offense exploded for 15 runs in three innings to give them a quick victory. 15-0

Coach Knott stated we must learn how to enjoy the game and find ways to get the bat on the ball , and play some kind of team defense for more than just a few innings .

Liberal now is 0-10 and 0-4 in the WAC.
