Port scores 5 in second inning, beats Pentucket 7-4

(Continued)

“We battled back,” Walsh said. “We got some big runs and had some big hits. The bottom line is we need to hit all game, and we just aren’t at that point yet.”

The perfect match for offensive momentum is timely pitching, something that the Clippers found from starting pitcher Victoria Allman. In seven innings pitched, Allman allowed four runs off 10 hits and one walk. She also struck out six, including two to end the game after a lead off triple by Maddie Binding in the seventh inning.

“To come up with two strikeouts in the top of the seventh when we had to finish it off was awesome,” Solazzo said. “It was great. She really battled back and had a great game overall. She does it when we need her to do it.”

For Pentucket, future success is dependent upon getting back to the past. After beginning the year with three straight wins and an average of 10 runs per game, Pentucket now has lost three straight and have scored under three runs per game.

“We need to get back to work and get back to where we started this season,” Walsh said.
