Lady Cardinals get blanked

CORBIN —  

By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — James Burns’ South Laurel Lady Cardinals faced some nasty weather conditions Thursday and couldn’t overcome Liverpool, N.Y., as the Lady Cardinals fell, 5-0, while going 1-3 during the Ripken Experience.

“It was cold, wet and nasty — bad conditions, but we just didn’t play well at all,” Burns said of his team’s loss. “We hadn’t played in those type of conditions. We just didn’t do well at all.”

South Laurel entered its spring break trip swinging red-hot bats, but they have cooled down since playing in South Carolina on Monday.

“It’s odd,” Burns said. “We were hitting so well and down here, we just haven’t been hitting at all, except for Madyson Morris and Brittany Vendeventor.

“Not making any excuses, we’re just not hitting the ball,” he added. “We had six hits today, but couldn’t score any runs. We had the bases loaded twice and came up empty.”

South Laurel only trailed 2-0 going into the fifth inning before seeing Liverpool pull away with three runs in the bottom of the fifth.

“We just couldn’t get any hits (strung) together,” Burns said.

Hagan Burns took the loss on the mound, allowing five hits, four earned runs while striking out five batters. Megan Smith pitched the final two innings and didn’t allow a hit and struck out three batters.

“Hagan didn’t pitch well,” Burns said. “She fell behind in the count and walked four. It was just a tough day.”
