By JASON EPP •Leader & Times The Lady Redskins corrected the errors made in a 16-9 loss in Game 1 at Stanton County to earn a split with a 4-0 win in Game 2. “We definitley played a lot better defensively,” Lady Redskins skipper Pat Knott said. “The plays that we didn’t make in the field in the first game, we made in the second.” Jaycee Darroch gave up only one walk and six hits, and struck out five. Darroch also went 2-4 at the plate in the win. Liberal scored two runs in the second and added a run in each of the next two innings. “We never faced more than four batters in an inning,” Knott said. “We kept them in check at the plate.” In Game 1 Stanton County jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Liberal scored one in the second, but still trailed 7-1 after three. The Lady Redskins scored one in the fourth, then exploded in the fifth for seven runs to take a 9-7 lead. During the rally Kaytlyn Ralston hit a two-run homerun to help the Lady Redskins cause. But the Lady Trojans came right back to retake the lead in the sixth with five runs, helped by three Lady Redskin errors in the inning. “We just couldn’t finish out the game,” Knott said. “Too many errors.” Riley Hay finished the game 4-4 at the plate. Liberal (7-9) will travel to Dodge City Tuesday.
