Midway - in the dark.jpg
Sara Davis of Precision Auto Machine is about to crush it in a girls Senior League win over Dana’s Dog-On Grooming, 17-15.

Precision Auto Machine revved its engine for a 17-15 win over Dana’s Dog-on Grooming in a girls Senior League slugfest on Tuesday night in Midway.

Precision’s Paisley Wanamaker and Mary Grace Martin were seeing the ball well at the plate in this game. Also, Emeline Bell, who may have earned the softball nickname “Charlee Hustle” with her performance, brought forth an intensity that carried her team to victory.

Shelby Smartt had another monster game for Dana’s with a pair of inside-the-park home runs. Smartt likes to hit the ball hard.

The Dana’s offense showed some bark early as the team jumped out to a 5-0 lead. Erin McBride led off and reached on an error. Sophie Woodlee singled to right field. Then Shelby Smartt singled to score McBride. Cassidy Gilbert brought Smartt home on a hit to right field. After Madison Smartt got a hit to center field, Aspen King reached on an error that allowed Gilbert to score. Then Anna Eidson found some green grass on a hit to right field, and Madison Smartt and King came home.

In the bottom of the first, Precision responded. Paisley Wanamaker led off with a single and scurried to third base on some wild throwing. Mary Grace Martin smacked a hit to left field to score Wanamaker. 

Emeri Cummings kept things going with a hit, and then Kamron Brooks doubled to right field to bring Martin and Cummings around. Emeline Bell got a two-out infield hit, and Emily Cantrell found space in left-center with her hit, allowing Brooks to score. It was 5-4 after one thrilling inning of action.

Precision was able to gain some separation by the bottom of the fourth. When Sara Davis brought Cantrell home with a hit, it made the score 14-10. Precision led 16-10 going into the fifth and Dana’s could not muster enough of a comeback to overtake the lead.

Smarty Pants 21

Chaos 1

Smarty Pants took the win in four innings in this one-sided game. 

The contest was marred by what Chaos players asserted was an unsportsmanlike, unnecessarily violent play by Smarty Pants while running the bases. 

The umpires agreed and ruled the Smarty Pants runner out following a nasty collision with a Chaos fielder.
