SA drops softball slugfest at home to Winston Academy

July 29, 2014

Starkville Academy returned to the softball field on Tuesday where despite posting five runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, the Lady Volunteers fell 15-11 to visiting Winston Academy.
"They competed," SA coach Kayla Mosley said. "They came back in the last inning and they competed."
A hit batsman and a pair of errors plagued the Lady Vols in the top of the first as Winston Academy took an early 3-0 lead.
Starkville Academy was unable to get anything going in its first trip to the plate and Winston continued to lead heading into the second.
Hit batsman continued to haunt the Lady Vols as two walked and two hit brought in a run for Winston Academy.
Moments later an error plated another run while a two-run single to left field made increased the margin to 7-0.
"Clearly we have to quit giving the other team stuff," Mosley said. "We have to quit putting them on base and when they do get there, we have to quit making mistakes behind our pitcher. We have to clean it up. Everything looks like a work in progress and not a well-oiled machine like we need to be."
