SH Angels All-Stars bow out quickly in traditional play / June 20, 2018
The South Hill Angels All-Stars (traditional play) were eliminated from the Dixie Softball District 1 tournament in Lawrenceville this weekend after dropping both their games on Friday and Saturday.

On Friday, the South Hill girls held Brunswick scoreless in the first inning, taking out the lineup in order with some nice infield defense. Brunswick returned the favor in its half of the inning, closing out South Hill in order in the first.

Brunswick picked up its pace in the second inning with a leadoff single. The runner scored after the next three batters got on base with two walks and a hit-batter call for the 1-0 lead.

SH placed one runner on base in the second when Hannah Parsons drew a walk. But the team was unable to bring her round to home plate.

The third inning is where Brunswick blew the game wide open, scoring 20 runs in the frame. South Hill once again went down 1-2-3 and took the 21-0 loss.

Brunswick 10, South Hill 0

Brunswick, which was designated the visiting club for Saturday’s game, wasted no time in this game picking up where they had left off on Friday. In the top of the first Brunswick plated four runs.

South Hill’s Ainsley Simmons moved to first base on a leadoff single. The next three batters went down on strikes to end the scoring threat.

Solid defense by South Hill in the top of the second held Brunswick to three at-bats and scoreless. Some nice pitching by Brunswick’s Emily King at the bottom of the inning held SH scoreless.

Brunswick posted two additional runs in the third. SH’s Alana Newcomb (walk) and McKenzie Evans, who reached base on a catcher’s interference call, were left on base after the next three batters were retired.

Brunswick closed out the top of the fourth with three runs for the 10-0 score. SH’s Simmons ripped a double to start of the bottom of the fourth.

Meredith Graham and Hannah Parsons drew walks but South Hill was unable to bring any of the runners home and fell 10-0 to end their all-star tourney run.
