Injury-riddled Skipjacks' win streak hits seven
FREDERICK – The Skipjacks may be down to nine healthy players, but it's not keeping them from winning softball games.
Stephanie Weyermiller hit four homers in four games as Chesapeake College swept host Frederick Community College, 5-2 and 8-1, Saturday afternoon to follow up on Friday's 7-1 and 8-3 sweep of visiting Cecil College. The twin sweeps allowed the injury-riddled Skipjacks (13-2 overall, 6-0 league) to run their winning streak to seven games.
"I've had years where nobody's gotten hurt. This isn't one of those years," said Chesapeake head coach Durrie Hayes. "It does make it easy to figure out a lineup."
Sam Greenwell and Kellieann Tyner, who have been in and out of the lineup with injuries, went back out over the course of the weekend. With those two out, Chesapeake has 10 players – but that includes Abby Tyner, whom Hayes dubbed an "emergency player" due to concussion issues.
"Sam's our cleanup hitter and Kellieann went 16-3 on the mound last year," said Hayes. "If we can get Sam and Kellieann back by the end of April, it would help us a lot."
Still, the Skipjacks are making it work.
Fortunately, we have depth at pitching," said Hayes, who received wins from three different pitchers over the weekend despite ace Kellieann Tyner throwing only two innings. "Stephanie (Weyermiller) and Shayla (Loudermilk) have fortunately been healthy the whole time and they each have four wins."
Chesapeake used a three-run first inning built around three walks, a Loudermilk sacrifice fly and Lindsey Poore's two-run single to take a 3-0 lead in Saturday's opener. Frederick pushed across two sixth-inning runs to pull within 3-2, but Weyermiller's two-out, two-run homer in the top of the seventh restored the Skipjacks' three-run cushion.
Loudermilk earned Saturday's Game 1 win by allowing two earned runs on two hits while walking three with four strikeouts. She also had a double at the plate.
Lindsey Budd had two hits for the Skipjacks.
Chesapeake completed Saturday's sweep as Weyermiller spaced seven hits in seven innings in the 8-1 triumph with three walks and no strikeouts. Weyermiller (2-for-3, four RBI) helped herself with a three-run homer as part of a four-run seventh that broke open a 4-1 contest.
"So far this year, our pitching has kept us in almost every game," said Hayes.
Hayes said that, due to all of the injuries, he's been forced to move his players around defensively depending upon the pitching rotation.
"There's been a lot of shifting around," conceded Hayes. "We're right on the edge, but we've got just enough versatility that so far we've been able to get it done."
Loudermilk helped stake the Skipjacks to an early lead with a three-run homer. Brigitte Garvey had two hits and Kaley Schreiber drove in a run.
Chesapeake 7, Cecil 1
WYE MILLS – Shayla Loudermilk allowed one run on four hits with two walks and seven strikeouts to earn the win in Friday's opener.
Brigitte Garvey (two RBI) and Hannah Stringer each had two hits while Loudermilk and Ali Jones each added a hit and two RBI.
Weyermiller contributed a double.
Chesapeake scored all the runs it needed in the opening inning with a two-out rally. Loudermilk had a two-run single and Lindsey Poore followed with a run-scoring hit.
Chesapeake 8, Cecil 3
WYE MILLS –Lindsey Poore pitched the final five innings in relief of the injured Kellieann Tyner, spacing four hits and three walks while yielding three earned runs to earn the victory as the Skipjacks completed Friday's sweep.
"Lindsey just came back Friday from an injury," noted head coach Durrie Hayes. "She hadn't practiced in two weeks."
