GENTRY -- After giving up seven runs in the top of the first inning to the visiting Lady Panthers in non-conference play, the Gentry Lady Pioneers scored 12 runs in the bottom of the inning, two in the second and another eight in the bottom of the third for a 22-7 win over Siloam Springs in three innings of play on Thursday.
The Lady Panthers picked up nine hits in the first inning and seven runs, but problems with Siloam Springs pitching and balls getting past the catcher allowed the Lady Pioneers to quickly catch up and take the lead. By the end of the inning, it was Gentry 12, Siloam Springs 7.
While the Lady Pioneers were able to correct their first-inning wobbles, they held the Lady Panthers scoreless in two more at-bats and added two more runs in the second inning and brought the game to an end when eight more Gentry girls crossed the plate in the bottom of the third, invoking the 15-run rule.
Makayla Case pitched for the Lady Pioneers and was credited with the win. Jessie Robinson, Allie Bowman and Tyler King all pitched for Siloam Springs.
