Eminence tested Herron in a close contest that featured two good pitchers, some rain, and more than a couple bunts. Herron took a one run lead after the lead in the first inning but Eminence tied it up at the bottom of the second inning. Needing runs, Cameron Cummins singled getting an RBI that was followed by a Bella Bazan double, scoring a run. Cameron and Rose Desrochers-Hawkins led the batting with three Hits each.
Emma Bailey struck out 7 batters in the seven inning game for the win.
With rain coming down and the Eminence team threatening to score with two runners on and only one out, the batter hit a pop fly in the direction of first base. Bella Bazan catches the ball and in a heads up play beats the runner back to first base for the double play ending the game!
Great Job Achaeans!
