The Pilot Grove Lady Tigers softball team raised its season record to 7-8 and conference mark to 2-2 by beating Glasgow Thursday night in Glasgow by a score of 14-3.
While out-hitting Glasgow 14-2, Pilot Grove actually trailed in this game after one inning by a score of 1-0 before reeling off one in the second and seven again in the third to make it 8-1. Meanwhile, after Glasgow plated one run in the bottom-half of the third, Pilot Grove came back and tallied two again in the fourth, one in the fifth and three in the sixth to extend the lead to 14-2. The Lady Yellowjackets then closed out the scoring with one run in the bottom-half of the sixth.
Pilot Grove coach Neal Bailey said he thought the girls played solid all around with perhaps the exception of a couple base running mistakes that they’ll address and clean up. “Defensively, we were without errors on nine balls put in play and allowed only two hits,” Bailey said. “Offensively, we were patient at the plate, seemed to see the ball well, took good swings, and put the ball in play. This game, the balls put in play found more holes than previous games for us, so we were able to do something with it.”
Samarah Bailey picked up the win in the circle for Pilot Grove to improved to 4-3 while Fuemmeler took the loss for Glasgow. In six innings, Bailey struck out nine batters and gave up three runs on two hits and three walks.  Fuemmeler, meanwhile, pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed 14 runs on 14 hits and five walks.
