After slow start, Bluestone falls 5-4 to Buckingham / April 17, 2019

The Bluestone Lady Barons fell 5-4 to district rival Buckingham on Wednesday in an exciting game that really didn’t get in full swing until the fourth inning. Bluestone’s Lilly Loftis had the only hit throughout the first three innings.

In the top of the fourth Cumberland scored one run. Bluestone also posted a run after Devin Gregory was able to score with the aid of a Katlyn Shanklin sacrifice and a two-out single by Sydney Newcomb.

Cumberland added two runs in the fifth and one run in the sixth. During the same frame Bluestone placed two runners in scoring position in the fifth inning — E. Newcomb getting on base with a double and Hannah Mull’s single.

In the sixth inning Shanklin and Baskerville led off with singles. Loftis also got on base, but the Lady Barons were unable to plate any of the runners.

Cumberland posted one final run at the top of the seventh. Bluestone made a good run in the bottom of the inning to tie or win the game, but came up just short.

The Lady Barons had a leadoff double. With one out Mull and Gregory singled and Chasitee Baskerville reached base on an error.

With two outs Loftis walked and Nunn, Mulla and Gregory went on to eventually score for the 5-4 Cumberland lead. With two outs and the tying run on third base, the Barons recorded their final out of the game.
