Late game rally lifts Lady Bears over Yoakum

LA VERNIA With district play set to begin Friday, the Lady Bears took last week to work out any early-season woes, as they prepare for a run at another district crown. La Vernia played host to Yoakum on March 5, and closed out an exciting game with a 10-7 victory.

The Lady Bulldogs struck first in the top of the second inning, scoring 1 run to take the early lead. La Vernia came back strong in the bottom of the frame, however, bringing four Lady Bears across home plate before having the side retired.

With La Vernia on top 4-1 after three innings of play, the Lady Bulldogs put together a 5-run inning in the top of the fourth, and took a 6-4 lead over the Lady Bears. Then, in the top of the fifth, Yoakum added another run to make it 7-4.

The Lady Bears came back in the bottom of the fifth inning to score a run, cutting Yoakum’s lead to 7-5. The Lady Bear defense held Yoakum in the top of the sixth, and then drove in 5 runs in the bottom of the frame to take a 10-7 lead. The Lady Bulldogs had one final at-bat in the top of the seventh, but the Lady Bears held, and sealed the win.

Three different Lady Bear pitchers saw work on the mound. Morgan Mikes threw nearly four complete innings, fanning four batters while giving up 2 earned runs. Rene Cummings picked up two strikeouts through her 2-2/3 innings of work, and Mackinley Zimmerle had one strikeout in one inning of work. She was also credited with the win. Sage Martinez led the Lady Bears at the plate with 2 hits, 2 runs, and 3 RBIs.

The Lady Bears will begin District 28-3A play this Friday, March 15, as the Lady Eagles of Pleasanton roll into town. The game will be early, and is scheduled for 11 a.m.
