Blue Springs rally falls just short
A late rally fell short for the Blue Springs softball team Wednesday.
The Wildcats scored all of their runs in the final three innings but host Raymore-Peculiar hung on for a 6-5 Suburban Big Eight victory.
Blue Springs scored a run in the fifth inning to cut the deficit to 3-1, but the Panthers, who hit three home runs on the day, answered with three more runs in the bottom of the fifth for a 6-1 advantage.
Blue Springs scored three runs in the sixth and added another in the seventh but couldn’t get the tying run to fall to 6-10 overall and 2-8 in the conference.
Makenna DeLany slugged a pair of solo home runs and Izzy Milligan also hit a solo homer to lead the Wildcats. Brooklyn Saysoff and losing pitcher Abby Kinzler each added two hits and Lexie Splichal doubled with an RBI.
