The Blue Springs South softball team scored all of its runs in one inning, and most of them came on bases-loaded walks.
But that was more than enough to give the Jaguars a 6-2 Suburban Big Six home victory over Lee’s Summit Thursday.
The Jaguars scored six runs in the sixth inning to break a scoreless tie. South improved to 10-4 overall and 4-2 in the conference.
Shannon Hughes bunted over the pitcher’s head to score Madi Giles with the first run of the sixth. Hannah Tolliver, Chelsey Tipton, Erin Griesbauer, Julia Woelbel and Giles then drew five straight bases-loaded walks to make it 6-0.
Griesbauer pitched the complete-game victory, allowing seven hits and striking out two.
