Brigitte Garvey has committed to Chesapeake College
Playoff Time-First Game
May 22, 2013

“We definitely played with a big chip on our shoulders today and we knew coming in that we’re a good team and we just needed to bring it up to the next level and we really did,” catcher Kylie Finley said.

That chip spawned from the Fighting Clan’s “flat” 11-2 loss to Buena on Monday on Senior Day, according to coach Alex Gomez.

“I think we came out really angry and we wanted to win,” pitcher Demi Murray said.

While Vineland’s bats were dulled by the Chiefs, they looked razor sharp against the Lions.

After Murray escaped a second-and-third jam in the top of the first inning with a clutch strikeout, the Fighting Clan gave her some breathing room in the bottom half of the frame.

Jalene Garcia and Bryanna Luciano reached base on back-to-back errors to open the inning and Brigitte Garvey followed with a moon shot to deep left field that landed on the warning track to plate both runners and give Vineland a 2-0 lead.

“Got to go green with runners on,” said Garvey of her mindset, referring to getting the ball to the outfield grass.

Finley came up next and drove in Garvey with an RBI single to left that made the score 3-0.

Vineland never looked back from there.

“It’s a lot easier to play when we’re up ahead, we’re more comfortable,” said Murray, who finished the game allowing just four hits while striking out seven.

The Fighting Clan scored two more runs in the third and fourth innings to extend their lead to 7-0. Liz Carpani had an RBI double and Grace Martino produced an RBI fielder’s choice in the third while Finley roped a two-run single in the fourth.

“I was just thinking I got to get a base hit here,” Finley said of her clutch knock. “It doesn’t matter what the score is, runners in scoring position you got to get a base hit.”

The only area Vineland struggled in was on the defensive end, where it committed four errors. However, Gomez said he wasn’t concerned.

He’s more focused on making sure the Fighting Clan’s bats stay tuned in.

“We got to hit,” he said, “we got to hit with the best of ‘em, and if you hit, you win.”

That starts with a sharp mindset.

“There’s always someone out there trying to prove you wrong that you aren’t the best,” Finley said. “We just got to stay believing that we’re the best.”
