Brakettes Squeak Past Bandits in 4-3 Win

By:
Lisle, Ill. – The Chicago Bandits kicked off what is sure to be an exciting series against the Connecticut Brakettes tonight at the Sports Complex at Benedictine University. Amy Harre took the start for the Bandits this
evening. Harre pitched a no hitter against the Michigan Ice in her last start. Her ERA of 1.01 is currently atop the NPF league leaders.

The Bandits scored their first run of the game in the bottom of the second inning. With one down, Nicole Trimboli looped a single into left. Trimboli advanced to second on a wild pitch thrown by Sarah Pauly. With a runner in scoring position, Trena Peel stepped up and cranked a single to right, bringing Trimboli in to score.

The Brakettes knocked down the Bandit’s door in the top of the fifth inning with back to back jacks by Jessica Merchant and Germaine Fairchild. Merchant scored three with her 240 foot blast, making the score 4-1.

The Bandits had a surge in the bottom of the seventh to try and salvage the win. Mackenzie Vandergeest started the rally by taking a free pass to first on the walk. Nicole Trimboli drilled a shot right up the middle. Jessica Williams, Vandergeest’s pinch runner, advanced to second on the play. Pinch hitter, Krista Jessup, kept the ball rolling by ripping a shot to center, scoring Williams and advancing Trimboli to second. Trena Peel showed patience at the plate and took a walk, loading the bases. With bases loaded and two down, Jaime Clark was intentionally walked, bringing the Bandits within one run, on a gutsy move by Brakettes’ head coach John Stratton. Unfortunately, the Bandits couldn’t generate anymore runs and took their second home loss to an NPF team this season.

This 4-3 loss brings the Bandit’s record to 25-8 and only 2 ½ games ahead of the second place Brakettes. The Bandits will try to redeem themselves as they take on Connecticut in game two of the homestand tomorrow night at 7:05 p.m.
