Taylor takes two from Lady Lancers

UPLAND, Ind. – Grace’s softball team was unable to take a game from Taylor on the road on Saturday.

The Lady Lancers lost 0-6 and 0-8 to the Trojans (11-4, 3-0 Crossroads League).

In the opening game, Grace foiled multiple chances to upend the Trojans, despite the 6-0 scoreline.

Grace had seven hits compared to eight for Taylor; but the Lady Lancers stranded eight baserunners and let Taylor get hot for two innings.

The Trojans scored three runs in both the fourth and sixth innings to secure the win.

In the top of the second inning, Grace had a baserunner on third base. In the top of the fifth, Grace had three baserunners who were unable to cross home plate.

The Lady Lancers had the bases loaded in the top of the seventh after pinch-hit singles by Hannah Middlebrooks and Hannah Harless as well as a walk by Taylor Asher. But Grace again came up empty in its final chance.

Morgan Tapscott was a bright spot offensively, going 3-of-3 from the plate.

The second game was run-shortened. Grace had a pair of baserunners stranded in the third inning and two more in the fifth inning; either chance could have given the Lady Lancers momentum, but both innings ended without a Grace run.

Erin Lawhon hit 1-of-1, and Andrea Castillo, Tapscott and Jessica Kaurich each had a hit.

The Lady Lancers will aim to rebound on Tuesday with a doubleheader at Spring Arbor.
