Kirkpatrick's throw out at 3rd stops Vista Ridge rally as Ladycats win state championship with 3-2 win

June 6, 2015 by Tony Eierdam

Vista Ridge batter Elizabeth Svienty had just singled in the seventh inning to cut the No.1 Aledo Ladycats' lead to 3-2 with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning of the Class 5A state championship game at McCombs Field in Austin.

Vista Ridge would have had runners on first and second trailing by a run, but the Lady Rangers got greedy. Pinch runner Elisa Zimmerman tried to advance to third base after the run-scoring hit, and Ladycats left-fielder Kadyn Kirkpatrick was ready.

Kirkpatrick fired a strike to Aledo third baseman Riley Sartain, who applied the tag for the final out that gave the Ladycats their second straight state championship in as many years.

it was a base-running mistake that a heads-up Kirkpatrick took advantage of.
