Cathedral softball’s season ends at Stringer

STRINGER — After losing to Stringer 4-2 in Game 2, the Cathedral Lady Green Wave were unable to hold a 3-1 lead as the Lady Red Devils rallied for a 5-4 win in Game 3 Saturday afternoon to take this MHSAA Class 1A South State Playoffs play-in round two game to one.

Stringer overcame an early 1-0 deficit in Game 2 with two runs in the bottom of the third inning and two more in the bottom of the fifth. Cathedral scored one run in the top of the sixth inning to make it a 4-2 game, but that would be as close as the Lady Green Wave would get.

“The first game (of the day), we had just one error. We were getting people on, but we couldn’t get the big hit,” Cathedral head coach Gary Blackwell said. “They were getting the hits and we weren’t.”

Catarine Mcnain went 2-for-3 with a double, Ashley Valentine had a triple and one run batted in, Seoggin helped her cause by going 2-for-3, and Madison parker was 2-for-2 to lead the Lady Red Devils at the plate. Elizabeth Smith had a double and one RBI while McKenzie Milligan and Kimble Devening each went 2-for-4 for the Lady Green Wave.

In the third and deciding game, Cathedral took a 3-1 lead into the bottom of the fifth inning before Stringer rallied for three runs in the frame to take the lead and added a key insurance run in the bottom of the sixth to go ahead 5-3.

The Lady Green Wave scored one run in the top of the seventh, but they couldn’t bring in the game-tying run to extend the game and their season was over.

“It just came down to them getting key hits and us not getting them,” Blackwell said. “Had people on base. Just couldn’t get the key hits when we needed them.”

Milligan went 2-for-3 with a triple, Mackenzie Watts was 2-for-4 with a double, and Mollie Devening tried to help cause by going 2-for-4 with one RBI. Kimble Devening and Tori Edwards each had one RBI for the Lady Green Wave.

Valentine had a triple and two RBIs while Kaitlyn Mccurty had a double and one RBI.

Madison Scoggin was the winning pitcher in both games and went all seven innings in the twinbill. In Game 2 of the series, she allowed two runs on eight hits and one walk with four strikeouts. In the deciding Game 3, she gave up four runs on nine hits with three strikeouts.

Mollie Devening took the loss in the two games despite a valiant effort in Game 3. In Game 2, she gave up four runs on 11 hits and just one walk and she struck out three batters. In Game 3, she allowed five runs but held Stringer to just five hits to go with two strikeouts and three walks.

“Those hits they got were hits when they had people on base,” Blackwell said. “Each game it was a battle back and forth. Overall, we were pleased with our effort.”

Cathedral, the Region 7-1A No. 3 seed, finished with an overall record of 16-9.
