Cornell Triple Helps Mounties Win in Extra Innings
DALTON, Mass. -- Taylor Cornell hit a two-run triple in the top of the seventh to force extra innings, and the Mount Greylock softball team prevailed, 7-6, in nine against Wahconah on Saturday.
In the top of the ninth, Lilly Lesieur reached on single and scored on an error with two outs.
Lesieur got the win in the circle, striking out 16 and giving up no walks. She and Wahconah's Abby Wells combined for 30 Ks in nine innings.
"Both pitchers pitched really well," Mount Greylock coach June Blake said. "Both teams with 5 errors. Not the defensive outing we were hoping for, but we were happy to get the win."
Cornell went 3-for-5 with three RBIs, and Lesieur helped her cause with a pair of hits and scored twice, including the game-winner.
Emma Parkington led Wahconah with a 3-for-4 day at the plate, and Jess Duma drove in two runs in the loss.
Wahconah (2-1) is at Pittsfield on Tuesday.
Mount Greylock (2-1) goes to Taconic on Tuesday.
