Guide Boat Realty wins Patty League Championship
It seemed only fitting that the Patty League Softball playoff final came down to the regular season co-champions, Guide Boat Realty and Pizza Hut. Guide Boat got off to a fast start scoring 4 runs in the bottom of the first inning. Ann E. Cantwell and Alex Covert scored on a single by Gabby Lewis, and Katie Madden and Molly Burgess scored on a single by pitcher Kelsey Blanchard.
Blanchard struck out 8 batters in the first three innings but also walked in a run in the second inning. Blanchard delivered a two out single in the bottom of the third to drive in Lewis giving Guide Boat a 5-1 lead after 3 innings. But Pizza Hut would not give up and scored 4 runs in the top of the fourth to knot the game at 5-5. The game remained tense as both teams left runners on base in the 5th and 6th innings.
The sun was starting to set as the teams moved into extra innings. Guide Boat got a lift defensively in the top of the 7th as Cantwell cleanly fielded two hard hit balls to first. Pizza Hut shut down Guide Boat's 2,3 an 4 hitters in the bottom of the 7th.
Blanchard then struck out the side in the top of the eighth. Katie Madden lead off the bottom of the eighth with her fourth straight single of the night. Molly Burgess followed with a solid single up the middle moving Madden to second. Madden dashed home from second when Blanchard hit the game winner up the middle. Blanchard had a very strong game, going the distance on the mound and striking out a season high 22 batters, while at the plate, she was 4 for 4 with 3 RBIs including the game winner.
