Williams fails on offense

The Williams Ladyjackets hosted a conference match-up against Durham last Wednesday. Williams took the loss with a 14-3 final score. 

Looking to put a league win on the board, Williams came out strong in the first inning with Jovanna Hernandez allowing just two runs and striking out two. On offense, the Ladyjackets struggled to get on base runners and went scoreless in the first inning with a 2-0 Durham lead. In the second inning, on defense, short stop Litzie Leos snagged a pop fly for the Jackets’ first out, followed by a strike out by Hernandez. But Durham banked on a two-out rally, bringing five runners across the plate against Williams defense for a 7-0 score. Late in the fourth, Williams finally placed a run on the board by Crystal Garcia on a hard hit grounder to centerfield by Bermudez, which left a 7-1 Durham lead.

Williams sent relief pitcher Bermudez in at the top of the fifth, striking out Durham’s first batter. But outfield errors would essentially seal the fate of the Ladyjackets as Durham’s offense sent four runners across the plate for a 11-1 lead. Williams stayed alive for another inning, with Evelyn Garcia crossing the plate at the bottom of the fifth to a 11-2 score. 

Back on defense, the Ladyjackets failed to execute on fielding, allowing the Trojans another three runs in the sixth to Williams’ one run, giving the Ladyjackets another loss, 14-3. 

“We always start out strong and then just seem to falter,” said Williams coach Kristi Hill. “The girls did a great job holding the Trojans in the first two innings.” 

The Ladyjackets sit a 1-9 overall record; 0-3 in league play. Williams will resume game play on May 1 against East Nicolaus with a 4 PM game time.■
