West Carroll scores 13 in win

THOMSON, Ill. — After losing to Morrison the night before, West Carroll rebounds with an impressive 13-6 win against Scales Mound/River Ridge on Thursday night.

The Thunder scored seven runs in the sixth inning after Scales Mound/River Ridge put up three runs in the fifth inning to reel within one run.

SM/RR scored the first two runs in the opening inning. Third baseman Nicole Ties and shortshop Louisa Williams scored in an inning that included three singles, and a fielder’s choice.

West Carroll followed suit in the bottom of the first with a lead-off solo home run before the Thunder were retired in order.

Brianna Kampmeier led off the bottom of the second inning with a single, then Darby Rumler sent in Kampmeier on a RBI single following a stolen base.

Maike also singled in the four-run rally and Cassidy Rice also pitched in with a two-run single with a stolen base to cap off the second inning.

The scoring became quiet until the bottom of the fourth inning when Rachel Dykstra brought in Rumler on a pinch-hit RBI single. Maike also got her third hit of the night in the fourth.

SM/RR scored its three runs off of three walks, a double, two singles and a throwing error. Louisa Williams got the double while Ashley Anderson and Hannah Wienen had the pair of singles.

West Carroll got it going in the sixth inning with a lead-off single by Maike, then the next five hitters reached base. Kampmeier broke the flood gates open with a three-run home run that brought in Anna Badtke and Monica Smith.

Maike went 5-for-5 on the night.

“I was very pleased with how we bounced back,” Thunder coach Don Mathey said. “We committed just one error in the game, and we have a chance to improve.”
