Tue 6-23-2020

Spirit Lake edged Estherville Lincoln Central 8-7 in softball on Tuesday night.  Each team scored a run in the first.  Spirit Lake added two runs in the second, a run in the third, and three runs in the fourth to go up 7-1.  ELC came storming back, scoring five in the fifth inning to cut the lead to 7-6.  The Indians got an insurance run in the sixth and would need it.  The Midgets got a solo home run from Lena McCoy in the top of the 7th and would get two more base runners on but fail to bring either across.

 

Elli Carney was 2-4 for Spirit Lake with a three run home run and crucial RBI single in the sixth inning.  Emma Jenness had a solo home run in the second inning.  Irish Knutson got the win on the mound.  She pitched the first 4 2/3 innings, giving up five runs on seven hits.  She struck out five.  McCoy was 2-4 with two home runs for ELC.  Jadynn Moore was 2-4 with a home run.

 

Spirit Lake is now 5-1.  Estherville Lincoln Central is 4-2.
