Lady Dogs Settle For Runner-up Trophy
The Sulphur Lady Bulldogs had another great showing at the annual Murray County Bash last weekend, coming up just short of winning it all and finishing 2nd. Sulphur beat Lindsay 12-2 and Washington 5-0 on Thursday. The Dogs advanced to the championship by beating Washington again 6-2 on Friday. They fell to Byng 3-2 in the championship on Saturday. Earlier in the week, the Lady Dogs suffered a tough loss to Lexington, falling 11-1. “We really bounced back from the loss to Lexington earlier in the week,” Sulphur head coach Heath Gilbert said. “We got two great wins over a traditional powerhouse in Washington to advance to the title game.” “But we just weren’t focused and our bats died. Blaklyn (Barber) pitched well enough for us but we just had no run support behind her.”
Sulphur 12, Lindsay 2
In the opening game of the Murray County Bash, Sulphur made quick work of the Leopards, winning in four innings. The Lady Dogs scored four runs in the bottom of the first and six more in the bottom of the third. Blakelynn Barber pitched all four innings for Sulphur, allowing just two earned runs on five hits. Kenzie Ruth was 2-for-2 with a triple and two RBIs. Kady Lynch was 2-for-2 with a double and drove in four runs. Kinlee Duck was 2-for-2 with an RBI. Shallen Mershon doubled and Abby Beck tripled in the win.
