Edward Jones entered the final game of the regular season unbeaten, but couldn’t get runners across the plate in key situations. Edward Jones looked poised for an explosive first inning, but Ruby Denning got back-to-back outs at third base for Carbide Crossfit to end the threat.
In the fourth inning, Edward Jones loaded the bases with no outs only to watch Carbide Crossfit record two straight force outs at the plate. The Carbide Crossfit defense was also good at catching pop flies in the infield.
Edward Jones showed some flashy defense of its own, including a big double play by third baseman Maggie Whiles when she caught the ball in the air and then caught the runner straying off third.
But the difference in the game was the hitting of Carbide Crossfit. Abby Fann sent a blast to right field and was able to round all the bases for a home run in the third inning.
That was followed by a pair of two-run home runs in the fourth when Adams and Smith both sent the ball deep to the outfield.
Carbide Crossfit was up 13-7 entering the last bat for Edward Jones and managed to hold on for the 13-11 win.
