Lady Tigers season closes in 7-5 loss in regional semifinal
The Lady Tigers came up just short with a four-run rally in the semifinals against Illini West in a 7-5 final. Alyssa Lewis took the loss, working six innings, allowing seven runs, only four were earned, struck out four, but walked six, and gave up the long ball.
BHS fell behind early as Illini West scored one run in the bottom of the first inning when Lady Charger Dooley opened the inning with a single, stole second, went to third on a passed ball and scored on another passed ball.
The Lady Chargers added two more in the third for a 3-0 margin. Illini West’s Blair Boston walked and Lara Pence helped her own cause when she socked a two-run shot over the left field fence.
