Game Recap

The Lady Titans lost a heart breaker 0-2 to 4A Kokomo. The Lady Titans battled until the last out. I am so proud of how these girls fought till the very end. This game started as a pitching dual right out of the gate. Senior Rachel Lawson pitching for Kokomo and Sophomore Shaelah Eliason on the mound for Taylor. Eliason threw 9 innings producing
13 K’s, 1BB, 3 Hits, 2 Runs. Shaelah pitched a phenomenal game. The Wildkats scored their 2 runs in the top half of the 9th when Ward drew the only walk Eliason gave up all game and the Titans did not field a bunt cleanly. That opened the door for the Wildkats to go on and score 2 runs. The Lady Titan had 4 different occasions when we had runners on second base and could not manufacture a run. Kokomo decided they were not going to allow Eliason a chance at the plate and intentionally walked her 4 times. That hurts when your top hitter is intentionally walked. I feel the outcome of the game would have been different if they would of pitched to her. Lanee Butzin 1-3, 1-2B, Kayla Salinas, Rachel Hafley, Emma Williams and Lydia Owens all had singles. The Lady Titans are 2-1on the season and face another 4A club in Logansport on Thursday
