In an effort to get as many games under the Lady Broncos’ belts before the High Desert League softball matches start April 5, Broncos coach Stacy Van Nest contacted Burroughs to set up a game for last Friday.
The outcome was valuable experience but a 3-11 loss to the tough Ridgecrest team.
“We put the ball in play,” said Van Nest, “but just needed to string more hits together and be more solid on defense.”
The game went a full seven innings. Burroughs held Bishop to one run through five innings.
The Broncos are 5-5 overall and head to Desert Christian today for the final pre-league game.
Megan Erwin pitched the first 2-1/3 innings, 4 strikeouts, 1 walk, 7 hits
Delia Falcon pitched the last 3-2/3 inning, 3 strike outs, 3 walks, 1 hit
Brooke Jordan: 2 for 3, a double, 1 RBI
Katie Manuelito: 1 for 3
Jackie Blumberg: 1 for 2
Emma Williams: 1 for 3
