ABSENTEES DOOM SOUTHWEST

With spring break beginning this weekend, four Lady Eagles started their vacation early by not showing up for Friday's game at Brian Perantoni Field against Southridge. Among them were Southwest's starting pitcher and relief pitcher. As a result, an unhappy head coach Adolfo Perez was forced to start his freshmen team's pitcher (Southwest does not have a JV). The Lady Spartans took advantage by drawing 25 walks in a 23-8 victory halted with no outs in the fourth by the mercy rule. Southridge had only three hits but two of them were first inning home runs. The hosts batted 22 batters in their 16-run third inning that featured eleven consecutive walks from three different Southwest pitchers. The offensive star for the visitors was leadoff batter Sherlly Roche, who was three-for-three with a double and an RBI. Amazingly, the Lady Eagles out-hit the winners, 8-3. Both teams are now 4-3.
