Stangs score late to down Centerville

BLOOMFIELD — The Davis County Mustangs softball team trailed Centerville 2-0 heading into the bottom of the fifth inning Wednesday night in Bloomfield.

The Mustangs proceeded to score two in the fifth to tie it, and they added three more in the sixth to down the visiting Redettes 5-2 in SCC softball action.

Neither team scored in the first, but the Mustangs did record two of their 10 hits in the inning. Davis County managed to get at least one hit in every inning of the contest.

Centerville went up 1-0 with a second-inning run. The run came when Bayleigh Johnson drove in Kiley Micetich, who singled earlier in the inning, with bloop double to right field. The score remained stuck at 1-0 through the third. Centerville tacked on another run in the fourth on a Maddy Lange homer to centerfield. The Redettes, however, did have a runner picked off before Lange’s big hit, which ended up costing them a run.

“It’s really frustrating,” said Centerville coach Nic Belloma said. “I felt like our lack of execution cost us to not score seven times when we had a good chance.”

The Mustang defense pulled off a double play in the top of the fifth, as they doubled a runner off first base on a fly ball to right field. Then, Davis County used three hits to score the tying runs in the bottom of the fifth. Winning pitcher Rylee Eakins kicked things off with a one-out double to get things started. Then, lead-off hitter Blair Bodkins recorded her third hit to plate Eakins. In addition, Marissa Shuey delivered a two-out hit to score the second run of the inning for the Mustangs.

“We’ve been getting a decent number of hits in most games,” said Mustang coach Jason Lough. “Tonight we did a good job of stringing them together with runners on base.”
