Irish Send Seniors Off on High Note
Tuesday, April 30th/ East Dublin ~ Tuesday night saw Scioto’s last regular season single home game, a tribute to their seniors and a head nod and small floral gesture to the three Thomas Worthington seniors as well. The night also witnessed another big win at the hands of a Worthington team. It was indeed Senior Night (finally, on the third try) celebrating the careers of senior Emily Dinan and Haley Gibson, both of whom were instrumental in the victory. Dinan got on base all 4 times scoring twice, and Gibby pitched a masterful complete game notching her 5th W on the year. Scioto jumped out to a big league early and coasted home scoring runs in the last 3 innings, and finally putting the game away in the bottom of the 6th winning by a final tally of 12-2.

Irish Drop Another Heartbreaker
Monday, April 29th/ Way out in western Hilliard ~ Things seemed to have turned the corner for the Irish 9, their energy was back, their bats were back, the defense was solid and for the second game in a row they were scoring runs… But as it turned out, it wasn’t enough as the Jaguars of Hilliard Bradley battled back for 5 runs in the bottom of the 7th including a game winning grand slam walk off home run making the final score 10-9. There are trough loses but this one was extra hard to swallow as it seemed as though Scioto had the game in hand right from the outset, only to have victory snatched away from them. However, on a positive note, and this author hates moral victories, this was a solid positive outing on all fronts, offense and defense both stepped up, they just couldn’t close the door.

Irish Dominate Wolves, Sweep Battle of Hard Road
Wednesday, April 24th/ West Worthington, somewhere down Hard Road ~ The Scioto bats finally woke up in a big way Wednesday night as they scored a run in every inning and then exploded for 7 runs in the top of the 5th snapping their losing skid. After scoring single runs in the first three innings, Coach Stamets asked the team for more than a single run. They obliged with 2. Heading out to the top of the 5th, Coach Ott urged the girls to put the game away, which they did, batting around and plating 7 runs putting the rivalry game against Kilbourne away by a score of 12-2.
