Fillies back on track

MORRISON, Ill. — Morrison catcher Chelsea Eads recalled coach Tammy Deter’s words following the team’s first conference loss to Bureau Valley last week.

“We have to put the past behind us,” Eads said. “It’s what we do next that matters.”

The Fillies responded with 19 runs spread out over two games Monday as they swept a doubleheader with Fulton at the Morrison Sports Complex. Despite scores of 11-1 and 8-0, Steamers coach Jen Pepper said her team was in both games. Late scoring runs by Morrison served as momentum killers.

“We made some fundamental mistakes on defense, and we beat ourselves,” Pepper said.

In particular, she pointed to Game 1, in which the score was tied 1-1 entering the fifth inning. The game ended in the sixth, an 11-1 slaughter rule. Seven of Morrison’s 11 hits came in the final inning.

“I don’t think they beat us,” Pepper said. “We were right in that game.”

The Steamers also held Morrison to two runs through four innings in Game 2.

Fulton pitcher Chelsea Lesnewski walked leadoff batter Jessica Wieneke to bring up the top of the order to bat for Morrison in the fifth. Shannon Finneran drove Wieneke in on a double and later scored after an errant throw by Fulton third baseman Kylie Kennedy.

Meanwhile, the Steamers couldn’t put their own runners in scoring position. With Allie Wiersema on the mound, Morrison kept most hits in the infield and played a clean game with only one error. Wiersema allowed only five hits with six strikeouts and didn’t walk any Fulton batters.

Defensively, Deter was satisfied with her team’s performance, adding the players responded well to her advice following their last loss.

“I thought we needed to do something else, so we switched it up (defensively),” Deter said. “I thought the girls really responded well. They just went out and played ball tonight.”
