Once again, Lemon went the distance for the Hatchets, while allowing six hits, she walked two and struck out six. As the ace of the team, she kept the Hatchets in the game and the nine-inning outing won’t hinder her ability to be back in the circle tonight.
“I think she got stronger in the last two innings, because she was a little ticked,” Alan Lemon said. “She can throw everyday as long as her legs hold up.”
Despite the loss, Lemon said he was proud of the way his team battled, and he’s not worried about this loss carrying over to tonight at Gibson Southern.
“We don’t have time to have a letdown,” Lemon said. “We’re going to get on the bus and go to Gibson Southern and try to give them a good game. I don’t mind losing a game like this, because we were in it, and that’s going to make you better as a team. It’s the kind of things we need during the season, so when it comes to sectional time we can pull them off.”
