Parkland Sweeps Lincoln to End Busy Week
After neither team scored in the first two innings, PC broke the game open with a five-run 3rd, scoring all five runs after two were out. The inning started quietly enough as the first two hitters grounded out but then Lauren Spelich was hit by a pitch, Kyliegh Basham singled, and Ivy Nichols walked to load the bases. Shelby Youngblood plated the first two runs with a single and Kirbie Mendenhall cracked her first home run of the season, a three run shot. Lincoln got two of the runs back in the 4th inning but PC answered back with four runs in the 5th to end the game. PC used six straight singles in the inning as Basham and Youngblood each drove in a pair. Youngblood went 3-3 with 4 RBI in the game while Basham had two hits, scored twice, and drove in two. Mendenhall added 4 runs batted in to help pitcher Morgan Parrish get the win and improve to (5-8). Parrish allowed just two runs on three hits while walking one and striking out three.
