'Jacks keep pace in conference softball race
WYE MILLS – The host Skipjacks used a small-ball strategy to set up their long-ball attack, helping Chesapeake College sweep Allegany College of Maryland, 7-4 and 11-0, and run its latest women's softball winning streak to 11 straight.
The Skipjacks used two walks, two steals, an error and a wild pitch to set the stage for Shayla Loudermilk's three-run homer that capped a four-run first inning in Thursday's nightcap. The second inning provided more of the same as another walk, Ali Jones' bunt single, Hannah Stringer's infield hit, and a run-scoring single by Kaley Schreiber preceded Brigitte Garvey's grand slam off Lindsey Lancaster as Chesapeake blew out to a 9-0 lead.
"I honestly just wanted a base hit," Garvey said after her grand slam. "And it just happened to go over the fence."
Stephanie Weyermiller (2-for-3), Garvey and Schreiber each scored two runs in the Game 2 win as eight different Skipjacks accounted for the team's nine hits. Kellieann Tyner (5-0) took it from there, throwing a tidy four-hitter with three strikeouts and no walks for her second consecutive shutout and third straight win since returning from a back injury.
"I've been focusing on my location more because my speed's not really there yet," said Tyner, who threw a no-hitter in her previous start against Prince George's Community College.
Chesapeake has won 20 of its last 21 games, but the Skipjacks (26-3 overall, 17-1 conference) still have no room for error as they battle CCBC-Catonsville (31-7, 19-1) for the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference crown. Durrie Hayes' squad likely needs to sweep its final three league doubleheaders – including twinbills Sunday against visiting Hagerstown (18-14, 13-5) and Monday at the College of Southern Maryland (21-11, 14-6) – in order to split the title with Catonsville.
"We're not going to give away anything, but our focus is on the conference," said Hayes, whose team hosts Potomac State College Saturday in a noon doubleheader that counts in the region but not in the conference.
While the Skipjacks romped in Thursday's nightcap, Game 1 was a different story as Chesapeake took on Allegany ace Carlie Lewis.
"Lewis won back-to-back state championships at Mountain Ridge," noted Hayes. "She threw the ball well, and it's been a while since we've seen someone like that. It wasn't until the second time through the lineup against her that we started to have some success."
Trailing 1-0, the Skipjacks put together a four-run third inning that including a game-tying, RBI triple by Schreiber (two hits, two RBI), a suicide squeeze from Garvey (two hits, three RBI) that plated the go-ahead run, and a two-run homer from Loudermilk that made it 4-1.
Allegany tied the game with a run in the fourth and two in the fifth, but the Skipjacks claimed the victory with a three-run sixth inning. Lewis forced in the go-ahead run with a bases-loaded walk to Schreiber, and Garvey delivered a two-run single to provide a pair of insurance runs.
Loudermilk threw a four-hit complete game with 12 strikeouts to earn the win. Jones, meanwhile, went 3-for-3.
