Steamers win in ninth

FULTON, Ill. — Fulton pushed across the winning run on an error with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat Riverdale 10-9 in Three Rivers Conference softball Monday at Drives Park.

Jenna James singled with one out to start the winning rally, and then she stole second base. Morgan Pannell followed with a walk, then James was thrown out at third on a fielder’s choice for the second out. A walk to Maddy Andresen loaded the bases, then Pannell scored on the right fielder’s error on a ball hit by Jenna Jones.

In the top half of the ninth, Fulton got out of a bases-loaded jam without the Rams scoring.

Ann Renkes led the Steamers’ offense. She hit a two-run double in Fulton’s four-run third inning and singled in a run in the sixth. Renkes, Jamie Huennekens and Andresen each scored a pair of runs.
