The Softball Team #37 won its final game today at the Ragin Cagin Invitational in Lafayette La. We squeeked by Boston College in the final game by winning 6-5.
Romo was the hero in this game. We fell behind 4-0 heading into the top of the 6th inning. We scored 2 runs in the 6th on some critical hitting to close the gap 4-2. In the top of the 7th, we loaded the bases with 0 outs. The Lyndsay and Colie flew out and put the weight of the world on Romo's shoulders. She did not disappoint.
She was down in the count (1-2) when she did what she does best; she lined a single to lf. When the lf bobbled the ball she advanced to second. The throw came in off-line and she took the opportunity to advance to 3B. Romo was credited with 2RBIs on the single. This play cleared the bases for 3 runs, which gave us the lead. BC scored a run in the botton of the 7th and stranded 2 but Sara gets the 6-5 win.
Romo finished the game 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs. Colie went 1 for 2 with 2 runs scored and an RBI. Haylie even got into the action by getting a single as she came in to pitch an inning in relief.
Sara pitched 4 2/3 innings. She gave up all 5 of BC's runs (5 ER) off 6 hits. She had 3 Ks and 4 BBs. Haylie and Megan each pitched an inning in relief.
Overall a very nice trip this weekend. The team is now 7-2. Romo will certainly get recognition for her performance this weekend and boost her chances for All-American honors.
