Tigers fall to Jags, Cards
Analy logged a pair of road games in recent North Bay League action, starting with a May 20 trip to Windsor.
The Tigers locked horns with the Jaguars in a see-saw battle, spotting Windsor a 3-0 lead in the first inning, before putting a four-spot on the board in the third. With Analy starter Olivia Franceschi (8 IP, 9 hits, 5 ERs, 8 Ks) refusing to give in, the game moved to extra innings knotted at 5-5. Windsor would push across a solo run in the bottom of the ninth to pull out a 6-5 win.
Collecting hits for the Tigers were Kylee Bauman (2 for 4, run), Analaya O’Campo (2 for 5, run), Elena Salgado (1 for 4), Malley Dyck (1 for 3, run, 2 RBIs), Cheyenne Reaney (1 for 4, 2 RBIs) and Catlin Caughie (1 for 4, run).
The Tigers’ bats were relatively quiet on their May 25 visit to Cardinal Newman, collecting just two hits and no runs off of Cardinal’s pitcher Analise Talifili in a 4-0 Newman win.
