Bailey Bradshaw got the start in the circle and Sydney Bardwell took care of catching duties behind the plate. Bradshaw gave up 8 earned runs on 11 hits, struck out 2, and walked 1. Bradshaw currently has a 5-4 record in preseason play. Sydney Provence and Jade Owens also saw time in the circle tonight.
Offensively, Massey led the charge going 2 for 3, hitting 1 home run, earning 2 RBI, scoring 1 run, and had 1 stolen base. Mackenzie Mitchell had 2 hits, walked once, and had 1 stolen base. Madeline Robinson had 1 hit and scored on Massey's home run. Leah Taylor had 1 hit. Sydney Bardwell and Hannah Harvey both walked.
Lovejoy is now 12-8 on the season with one preseason game to go on Thursday against Celina.
