The Eagles softball team spotted the Father Tolton Trailblazer’s four runs in the third inning and it may have looked as thought the SoBoCo three-game winning streak to start the season would go by the wayside.
But the Eagles were patient at the plate and confident in their defense and Ashley Osborne’s pitching to mount a comeback with 10 unanswered runs and a 10-4 victory.
The Eagles started their comeback in the four inning when Bri Volle and Osborne reached base on errors and Dani Post doubled them home to pull SoBoCo within two at 4-2.
“That was a big hit,” SoBoCo coach Ashley Anderson said of Post’s double to the centerfield fence. “That turned the momentum around.”
SoBoCo came out swinging again in the fifth inning. Kylee Lammers reached on an error and Volle reached on an infield hit.
Osborne’s hit scored one run and Post got her third and fourth RBIs and gave the Eagles a 5-4 lead. Osborne then worked her way out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth.
After Tolton put together a hit an error and Osborne’s only walk, a Tolton batter hit a soft grounder drive that second baseman Kate Ponder scooped and fired to the plate for the out and Osborne got the next Tolton batter to pop out. Threat ended.
