March 23, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Saginaw hands baseball Bearcats first district loss

Aledo right fielder Carolyn Clayton's solo inside-the-park home run in the bottom of the sixth inning gave the Ladycats the run they needed to run-rule Saginaw, 15-5, Tuesday night in a District 6-4A contest at Ladycats Field.

The win raises the Ladycats district record to 3-2. Aledo will continue league action at 7 p.m. Friday, March 26, at Springtown.

Kacie Brann was the winning pitcher for AHS. The sophomore allowed five runs on three hits with eight walks and 10 strikeouts in six innings.

Seven of Aledo's 16 hits came off the bats of Jordan Simons and Kendall Kizer. Simons swatted four singles, while Kizer had three hits, including a double.

Clayton - who also registered a single - Aubrey Jordan and Rebecca Phillips each recorded a pair of hits, while Morgan Farley, Shelby Stockard and Sarah Simpson each collected a hit.

The Ladycats broke open a 3-2 game with seven runs in the fourth inning to take a 10-2 lead. The big hit in the frame was a single by Stockard that drove in Farley and Clayton.

Lauren Durham was also responsible for driving home Kizer and Stockard in the fourth when Saginaw's second baseman failed to come up with a pop fly.

Clayton, Kizer and Simons also recorded an RBI apiece in the fourth.

After Saginaw scored three runs in the top of the fifth, Aledo tacked on four more runs in the bottom of the frame to take a 14-5 lead.

Stockard ripped a base hit to drive in Amanda Swanzy, and Durham drove in Clayton with a fielder's choice ground out. The final two runs in the inning were scored when Phillips singled home Stockard and Simons plated Kizer with her fourth base hit of the contest.

Saginaw 5, Bearcats 2

Saginaw took advantage of a pair of Aledo errors in the third inning and scored four runs which was the difference in a 5-2 Bearcat loss Tuesday night in a District 6-4A contest at Bearcat Field.

Ryan Talley took the loss for the Bearcats, whose 6-4A record falls to 3-1. The win raises Saginaw' district mark to 3-1 as both the Bearcats and Saginaw are in a second-place tie in the district standings. Birdville, with a win Tuesday night over Mineral Wells, sits atop the league standings with a 4-0 mark.

Saginaw added a run in the fourth for a 5-0 lead. But the Bearcats came back to cut the lead to 4-1 in the bottom of the frame when Lawton Rinker hit a sacrifice fly to center field that drove in Rylan Riney.

Aledo added a run in the fifth to cut the Rough Riders' lead to 5-2. Nick Petrovich ripped a base hit to right field that scored Nils Smith, who had reached on a single.

Saginaw retired the Bearcats in order in the seventh to preserve the win.
