Tonight's game was an interesting one. Holly travelled to Grand Blanc to face off against the home team for the only time this season (the first scheduled matchup was cancelled).

Holly had a big first inning, plating five runs in the top half of the inning. Samantha did her part, drawing a walk and getting a steal before coming around to score a run. Holly got some decent pitching in the bottom of the inning, snaring three strikeouts while only allowing a single two-out run while maintaining a 5-1 lead heading into the second.

The second inning was another favorable one for Holly, as they scored four additional runs. Once again Sam drew a walk, but she was caught in a fielders choice situation while trying to run to third base, getting tagged out in the process. Holly's pitching slipped a bit in the bottom of the second, as they gave up three runs to narrow the gap to 9-4.

Holly went cold at the plate in the third and fourth innings, including a groundout in the third. The pitching went cold too, as they coughed up their lead as Grand Blanc scored 5 and then 4 runs in the two innings, grabbing a 13-9 lead over Holly.

Holly came to the plate in the fifth inning needing to score some runs to get back into the game. Thankfully they were up to the task, as they would go on to score 8 times in the top half of the inning. Sam even found herself batting twice in the inning, hitting the ball through second base during her first at-bat before grounding out to the pitcher in her final at-bat of the game. She came around to score on her hit, helping add to the team's total. Holly got some big defensive plays in the bottom of the fifth, including the final out of the game on a high pop fly that was ran down by Sam in right-center field to seal the comeback and earn her the game ball. Way to go girl!
