The 14-2 Falcons sent Culver Stockton JV home with two losses after a pair of duplicate scoreline 5-4 wins over the Wildcats. Walk off home runs are a nice way to win games in extra innings, but dramatic wins aren’t always good on the blood pressure. ECC was up 3-0 in the 1st inning after an Eden Henry RBI single and Ashley Miller’s 2 RBI single. Jamie Kluba sent a towering homer over the left field fence to make 4-0 in the 3rd inning. Culver Stockton answered back after a couple of errors in the 4th inning loaded the bases and led to a game tying grand slam at 4-4. The game went to extra innings and Megan Micke launched a shot over the centerfield fence to walk off in style. Abby Ray came in relief to get the win for the Falcons.
The second game had ECC up 2-0 with an Ashley Miller two RBI double in the first inning. Micke hit a triple and came in to score. The Falcons were down 4-3 and made a comeback in the 4th inning on a string of small ball plays with bunts and pass balls to advance the runners and score two runs. Makala Trail picked up the victory going the distance pitching for ECC.
