St. Martin exploded late to beat Hancock 10-2 in 9 innings

KILN, MS (WLOX) -

St. Martin the Division 8-6A Champs were expecting to pick up a win Monday night but they didn't expect a stiff challenge from home standing Hancock.

Sophomore pitcher Kaylan Ladner gave up only one hit through eight innings.  The game was scoreless until the end of regulation.  In the 8th inning of a tied game, each team places a runner on second base to begin the frame.

St. Martin grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the eighth on a perfect bunt off the bat of Emily Stansbury, a bunt that scored Courtney Hardy from third base.

Hancock would force another extra inning when the Lady Hawks plated a run in the bottom of the eighth.  Riley Swilley hit the ball to the shortstop with a runner on third.  The throw went to first base for the out, but enabled Tori Morrison to score the game tying run.

Hancock's Kaylan Ladner had given up only one hit through eight innings and she got tired out on the mound.  St. Martin would bang out five hits in the innings and scored 9 runs to take a 10-1 lead. 

St. Martin sophomore pitcher Rebecca Anderson posted her 11th win of the season against 2 losses.  She gave up one hit and a run in the bottom of the 10th and the Yellow Jackets advance to Tuesday's home game with Hancock needing a win to gain a sweep of the Lady Hawks.

Anderson gave up 3 hits and tossed 14 strikeouts on the night.

She said,"I couldn't do it without my team and my catcher who is back there calling the pitches and making sure she frames it pretty good.  I didn't think the game would be this close because we beat them during the season, but they played well before we exploded in the ninth."

St. Martin head coach Joe Rankin stated,"Anderson really hung in there and kept us in the game and gave us a chance to win and she does a great job of pitching.  It was a total team effort and we look forward to Tuesday's home game at 5:00."
