Caston struggled at the plate collecting only three hits with 14 K’s. Pioneer putting the bat to the ball forced Caston into 8 errors.
Pioneer secured the win in the second with a 4 run inning going up 6-0. Caston, only had one runner past second and that was Boldry on a lead-off triple in the fourth. She would end being stranded as Pioneer pitcher got a pop-up and then 2 K’s to end the threat.
Collecting hits for Caston was Boldry 3B, and M. Smith and Harsh each had single.
Side note: Caston has made great strides throughout the year. Up to this point they have only been run ruled three times (all three teams ranked at the time) vs. 13 last year. They will decrease their loss total by a minimum of 7, and improve wins by at least 4. With two games left and sectional they are looking to build on this.
