Edited recap from Batesville’s Randy Obermeyer- The Lady Bulldogs defeated the Lions of Rushville 2-1. Another solid night of pitching by senior Paige Oldham backed by a stellar defense held the Lions to just one unearned run.

Batesville put two runs on the board in the first inning. A leadoff single by Kylie Laker, a walk by Sydnee Scheafer and a single by Emma Belter set up a sacrifice fly RBI by Oldham. Renee Lecher then singled to score Belter.

The Bulldogs stranded 12 runners over the next 6 innings.

Rushville’s only run came in the second after an error on a short fly to left field with a runner at third allowing the runner to advance home after the drop. The only real threat to the Bulldogs lead came in the fifth with the bases loaded with no outs.  Rushville grounded to Lecher where she got the force out at home. Oldham forced another grounder to herself on the next batter allowing her to quickly throw home for the force out, followed by a throw to third from Belter for an inning ending double play.

Oldham finished the game with 3 strikeouts and an opposing batting average of .167. She also knocked in a run with a double and had 5 assists. Laker batted 3 for 3 with a walk. Lecher had an RBI on a double and had 4 assists. Margaret Wilson finished with 11 putouts while Belter ended with 5.

The Bulldogs move to 3-0 on the season and 1-0 in the EIAC with the win.
