Lexington closes fast-pitch season


Lexington’s 2021 fast-pitch season came to a close with a pair of losses to Jones in the play-into the playoffs last Thursday.

Jones won the first game 4-0 limiting Lexington to only three hits.

In the nightcap, Lexington held the lead until Jones pushed across a pair of runs in the top of the seventh to post a 7-6 season ending loss on the Lady Bulldogs.

After Jones struck for two runs in the top of the first Lexington eventually built a 5-3 lead heading into the top of the sixth.

But Jones responded with a pair of runs in the top of the sixth and two more in the top of the seventh.

Kiely Givens, who finished with three RBIs in the game, went yard in the bottom of the second with Cora Vasquez on base.

Vasquez went 2-3 at the plate in that contest and had an RBI. Abby Sample also went 2-3 and had an RBI. Baylie Rillema had a 2-4 outing at the plate including an RBI.

Coach Ryan Perry also got a hit from Izzy Pack and Leslie Barber doubled in the game.

Earlier in the week, Washington pinned a 9-2 loss on the Lady ‘Dawgs, who finished the year 11-19.
