The steps toward improvement may seem small, but the Lady Redskins softball program took some steps forward in a pair of losses to Garden City.

Liberal competed early with the Lady Buffaloes in the first game of the double header before losing 13-2.

But the two runs were a welcome sign for coach Pat Knott after getting no hit in two straight games against Great Bend.

Emily Casteneda led off the second inning with a single, and after an infield fly and Katie Jennings was hit by a pitch, Calie Milsap hit a two RBI double into right field.

Trailing 4-2, the Lady Redskins kept the game close by preventing Garden City from scoring in the bottom of the second, but after Liberal failed to score in the top of the third, Garden City took advantage of four Lady redskins mistake to go along with three hits to score six runs and take a commanding 10-2 lead.

“The second inning our offensive execution was nice to see, but we still must make plays behind our pitcher and work together to get outs,” Knott said. “When we bat we must learn that the pitchers will make changes. We must adjust and keep our confidence when batting.”

The Lady Redskins failed to get a hit in the second game and fell in three innings, 15-0.

“We must learn how to enjoy the game and find ways to get the bat on the ball , and play some kind of team defense for more than just a few innings,” Knott said.

Liberal is 0-10, 0-4 in the WAC.
