Malley-led FC/L softball starts 6-0


Fri, May 2nd, 2014
Posted in All Sports

Fillmore Central/Lanesboro’s softball player Morgan Malley is well-known for her pitching talents. But over a two-day span versus R-P in a doubleheader, and then against W-K, the junior was massive everywhere. She helped her senior-less team to a 6-0 start to the season. She then ended the week in a ridiculous pitching duel.

In game one versus the Trojans, the Falcons sent 13 to the plate in the top of the first. Spurred by Gabby Brazee’s 2-run double and RBI-single, FC/L put nine on the board. Malley took it from there (5 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 10 K, 1 BB). She had 19 of 23 first pitch strikes and K’ed two batters in four of five innings. Her night was shortened on account of the 2-run HR she hit that brought the 10-run rule into effect. Behind her efforts (2-4, HR, 3 RBI, 2 R, Win), Brazee (2-3, 2B, 3 RBI, R), and the other seven Falcons with a hit, FC/L prevailed 11-1. Lauren Hadley (2-2), Keela Brand (1-2, RBI), and Brooke Johnson (1-3, 2B, R; pitching loss) led the Trojans.

In game two, R-P pitcher Savannah Skalet struck out 12 (two in five of six innings). FC/L pitcher Steph Erickson retired 12 straight one point. After R-P scored in the top of the first, Malley hit her second HR in the bottom. The Falcons scored runs in the second and fifth on just one total hit (3-1). R-P got one back in the sixth and had a runner on third. A Malley strikeout ended the threat. Three more ended the game. FC/L prevailed 3-2. Erickson got the win (5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K), Malley the save (2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 5 K; 1-1 HR, RBI, SB, 2 R). Skalet took the loss (6 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 12 K). Hadley (2-3, 2 SB, 2 R) and Brand (2-3, 2B, SB) again hit for R-P.

The Falcons then welcomed Wabasha-Kellogg to Preston. FC/L again got early run support. In the first, Taylor Pierce-Sprenger singled, went to second on an error, and scored on an Erickson single. In the second, Haley Polin hit a smash past short to plate two more (3-0). Malley then retired eight straight batters via ‘K’. W-K’s big chance came in the fifth. With two on and no out, Malley foiled the threat by snaring a sac bunt attempt out of the air, then doubling a runner off first. Rowan Blaschko followed with an RBI single (W-K’s only run). FC/L prevailed 4-1. Malley was again excellent (1-3, 2 SB, R; 7 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 14 K, 3 BB). Erickson had two hits (2-3, RBI, SB), the only player to do so.

The Falcons ended the week taking .....
