It wasn’t the end to the Spring Break the Lady Falcons were looking for as an uncommon error-prone performance helped Ripley pick up a 7-2 win in the North Pontotoc Tournament on Saturday.
Ripley took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, but Natalie Frenn reached on a one-out tripled in the bottom of the fourth and tied the game when she scored on a sac fly to left by Shauna Grisham.
The wheels came off for the Lady Falcons in the top of the seventh when Ripley platted six runs on two hits and five errors. Frenn, who started on second due to tie breaking rules, scored from when Grisham reached on an error. The Lady Falcons couldn’t spark the bats to start a rally as the Lady Tigers turned a double play and a ground out to the pitcher to pick up the victory.
Ingomar only managed two hits in the form of a pair of triples from Grisham and Frenn.
Frenn was the pitcher of record giving up one earned run on two hits, one walk, and one hit batter. The Lady Falcons committed eight errors in the loss.
