Thursday's Broadcast - Softball - East Haven at North Branford - and it turned out to be a dandy.
A Pitcher's Duel - Emilee Bishop(East Haven) vs. Kiley Mullins(North Branford)
It was scoreless through 4 innings. But East Haven put across a run in the 5th.
Adriana Franceschi reached on a bunt single(she is a great bunter), stole 2nd, and scored on a single by Gianna Santoro.
The Yellow Jackets added 4 more runs in the 7th. Rbis for Lena Barthel, Emilee Bishop and 2 rbis from Lexi Heaphy(double).
Emilee Bishop gave up just 2 hits and had 11 strikeouts. She is an outstanding pitcher and player.
Kiley Mullins had 9 strikeouts for North Branford. I thought she pitched very well in defeat.
East Haven finishes the regular season 18-2. North Branford is 13-6, with 1 game remaining.
