Lady Patriots break through to winning side


First Posted: 4/9/2013

After a 0-3 start the Lady Patriots got their first win, 6-5 over Wyoming Valley West in a Wyoming Valley Conference Division 1 game at Third Street Elementary in Kingston.

Freshman pitcher Taylor Baloga had an RBI triple and Julie Silinskie and Liz Cappelloni had RBI singles as the Patriots (1-3) scored in four of their first five trips to the plate. And with Baloga cruising in the circle for the most part, the 6-0 lead looked fairly safe.

In the fifth Valley West (1-3) batted around and scored five unearned runs, as the young Patriots made five errors, to make it 6-5.

In the sixth Valley West put runners on first and second with two outs. Baloga, though, recorded her second strikeout of the game to end the inning and retired the Spartans in order in the seventh.
