Lee Softball Drops Two Saturday

Saturday, February 3, 2018
 The Lee University softball team lost both of its games on the second day of the Gulf Coast Invitational Saturday afternoon at the Gulf Shores Sportsplex. The Lady Flames (1-3) fell 8-5 to Rollins (1-3) and was a 6-2 victim to Spring Hill (1-2).

Lee is scheduled to play Barry University Sunday at 10 a.m. Following the weekend’s contests, the Lady Flames will host Lincoln Memorial University on Wednesday for their home opener. The non-conference doubleheader is slated for a 2 p.m.
start.

 

SPRING HILL 6, LEE 2

The Badgers scored the final five runs of the game, including four in the top of the seventh inning, to turn a 2-1 deficit into the 6-2 advantage.

Lee took an early lead following a perfectly executed squeeze bunt by Claudia Jones to score Brooklynn Frazier in the second inning.

Spring Hill tallied the tying run with two-out RBI single by Aly Fowler in the fourth. Leigh Beatenbough put Lee back ahead with a two-out single that pushed Frazier across the plate for the second time.

A leadoff home run by SHC’s Brooke Vosloh knotted the score at 2-2 in the sixth inning and the Badgers took advantage of two walks, a hit batter, one Lee error and two hits to post four runs in their final at bat.

The Lady Flames collected seven singles in the loss with Beatenbough 2-for-3 to lead the Lee offense.

Beatenbough started in the circle and went five innings before being relieved. The senior was tabbed with two runs on four hits, two walks and three strikeouts. Erika Greek pitched the final two innings as was charged with the loss. 

 

ROLLINS 8, LEE 5

Lee grabbed a 5-2 lead after using three Rollins errors to put up four runs in the fourth inning, but the Tars recorded two unearned runs in the fifth and four in the sixth.

 Rollins finished the game with 13 hits to five for the Lady Flames. Chandler Middlebrook, Whitney Foyer and Tayler Holt legged out doubles, while Stevie Baird had Lee’s lone extra-base hit.

Shonna Penney allowed two earned runs off eight hits over five innings in the first start of her Lee career. The freshman walked one and struck out one.

Taylor Moran was charged with the loss after giving up four runs and five hits in less than an inning of work.

Grace Street gave up five unearned runs, three hits, walked three and fanned four Lee batters to pick up the win.
