CHURUBUSCO â€” Normally, when a team scores six runs in a high school softball game they can expect to be in the thick of things.
But that doesnâ€™t apply when the other teams scores 10 runs in the first inning alone â€” sending 15 batters to the plate in the same inning.
The Churubusco Lady Eagle softball team found itself on the wrong side of that situation as it dropped a 25-6 contest to a hard-hitting Concordia team in a non-conference contest Monday evening at the Churubusco diamond.
The Eagles found themselves in a 10-0 hole at the end of the first inning.
In their half, Concordia sent 15 batters to the plate, collecting the 10 runs on six hits and two Lady Eagle errors.
After six Concordia runs crossed the plate, the Eaglesâ€™ starting pitcher Kristen Krill was chased from the mound in favor of freshman Courtney Luttman.
The Lady Cadets didnâ€™t treat Luttman any better, pushing across six more runs in the top of the second on seven more hits and Lady Eagle errors, as Luttman was replaced by Krill, who returned to the mound.
The Lady Eagles showed some offensive prowess of their own in the bottom of the second.
