Cox, Scaglione Lead Nauts in Victory

By:
Hempstead, NY-- The New York Juggernaut came from behind to take game three of the series from the Chinese National Team. Natasha Watley just missed the cycle going 3-for-4 with a single, double and a triple on the day. Jodie Cox and Heather Scaglione each recorded a single and double with two RBI and Kaleo Eldredge added two hits on the day for the Juggernaut. Peaches James pitched a complete game and earned the victory in the circle.

China jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning. With two outs, Zhang Lifang was hit by a James pitch. A single by Sun Li, followed by a stolen base, put runners on second and third for the Chinese. Miao Ruiying hit a two-RBI single to left field to put China on the board. China scored again in the third due to costly errors by the Juggernaut defense.

New York began its comeback in the bottom of the third as it plated two runs to cut the deficit. Watley led off the inning with a double down the left field line. With two outs, Cox picked up her first RBI of the day with a double of her own to right center field. Scaglione followed with a two-out RBI single to center to score Cox from second.

The Juggernaut scored again in the fifth to take the lead from the Chinese National Team. Watley, again, led off the inning with a single to center field. A sacrifice bunt by Carri Leto moved Watley into scoring position for the Nauts. Once more, Cox and Sacglione hit a single and double, respectively, to push the Juggernaut ahead 4-3.

New York added some insurance runs in the sixth. Kaleo Eldredge led off with a double to left field, her second hit of the day. A sacrifice bunt by Kim Ogee and two crucial Chinese errors allowed Eldredge to score, making the score 5-3. Ryan Realmuto added a pinch hit, sacrifice fly to score Ogee from third. Watley followed with a triple to left field, but was stranded on third as the Juggernaut got all the run support they needed to defeat the Chinese.

Peaches James got the complete game win, striking out six more batters as she continues to lead the NPF with 69 strikeouts. The NY Juggernaut finish up their four-game series against China on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. For tickets or more information on the NY Juggernaut, please call 516-485-0141 or visit the Juggernaut online at
