Diamonds, Racers Split Series

By:
Firestone Stadium, Akron, Ohio – July 29, 2012 – The Carolina Diamonds rallied hard with nine hits and seven RBIs to take the final game of the series against the Akron Racers this weekend, 7-4. 

Diamonds second baseman Natalie Villarreal (.234) started out the game with a double to place her on base with Amanda Kamekona (.291) who was walked immediately after. Third baseman Kelsi Weseman (.333) drove home both runners with a two RBI single.

The Diamonds gained two more runs in the second inning with Kamekona’s two-run home run to give the Diamonds a 4-0 lead. Racers third baseman Kelley Montalvo (.132) responded by blasting a 3-2 pitch over the fence with two outs and two base runners on. This tied up the game at four runs a piece in the second inning.

Racers centerfielder Lisa Modglin flashed her defensive leather, denying both Villarreal and Bianca Mejia (.200) a home run and an extra base hit by pulling both fly balls back over the fence in remarkable catches during the game.

Racers pitcher Kristina Thorson got the start for Akron and ran into trouble in the first two innings. She was behind on every batter and allowed a double, two walks, and four runs scored in this appearance.  Thorson was shortly relieved by Hillary Bach (L 4-6) who ended up giving up three hits and two runs to the Diamonds offense for the loss and final score of 7-4.

The Racers continue their season next weekend, August 2-4, at USSSA Florida Pride. Games can be viewed live at www.profastpitch.com
