Tigers get a run in seventh, edge Eagles
ATTICA — Seneca East beat Colonel Crawford 4-3 Tuesday.
But the Tigers had to work for it in the late innings.
Seneca East hadn’t managed much of anything through five innings against Northern 10 Athletic Conference rival Colonel Crawford.
Going to the bottom of the sixth, the Tigers were facing a 2-0 deficit.
But things quickly turned.
Lauren Bogner opened the inning with a walk, and then Jess Bowerman doubled her to third.
A single by Mallory Beamer cut the lead in half. Then Bowerman scored on a wild pitch and Jillian Allgyre hit a sacrifice fly.
And the Tigers were up 3-2, three outs away from a conference win.
But the Eagles answered, scoring a run in the top of the seventh off Seneca East hurler Hanah Bisignano.
The game was tied.
Bisignano then did her part in the bottom of the seventh to make sure it didn’t stay that way. She ripped a double to lead off the inning. A courtesy runner was used and moved to third on a wild pitch, then scored the winning run when Katrina Kagy hit a fielder’s choice.
Bisignano threw a complete seven innings, getting the win. She struck out four and hit a batter. She walked one.
SE improved to 7-5, 4-4 in the N10.
