Trojan bats silenced

Published 3:00 am Tuesday, April 19, 2016

The Charles Henderson Lady Trojans let the game get away from them in the middle innings in 10-0 loss to area opponent Rehobeth on Monday.

The Rebels scored four runs in both the fourth and fifth innings to come away with a comfortable win.

“We just didn’t play very well defensively,” said Trojans head coach Robin Snyder. “We have to do a better job. Sometimes during games like that we take ourselves out of it before it starts. We have to do a better job at getting mentally prepared and believing that we can beat quality teams.”

Molly Kate Sanders started the game for the Trojans. Sanders threw 4 2/3 innings of work allowing 10 runs, nine of which were earned runs on 13 hits.

The Trojans (3-2 in area play) managed to earn three hits on Monday, compared to 14 by the Rebels. Sanders, Sidney Armstrong, and Lindsey Fox had the three hits for the Trojans.

“We didn’t do a whole lot,” Snyder said. “We didn’t put the ball in play. Even when we had a chance to put pressure on the defense we maid mental mistakes that took us out of innings.”

The Rebels scored two of their runs in the bottom of the second inning.

After both teams went scoreless in the third inning, the Rebels tacked on four runs with five hits including two homeruns to go up 6-0.

The Rebels once again added four more runs in the fifth inning to end the game via the run rule.

The Trojans will be back in action this afternoon when they face another area opponent in Eufaula starting at 5 p.m.
