Salem Lady Cats Offense Too Little, Too LateBENTON - The Salem Lady Wildcats gave Benton a 5-run cushion to start the game, and despite 3 runs coming across in the final at-bat, they fell on the road to the Lady Rangers 5-3.
"It took too long for our bats to wake up," said head coach James Holsapple.
Mallory Daniels had Salem's only 2 hits heading into the final inning, and she was on deck when the final out was made in the 7th.
Daniels threw 6 innings, allowing 3 earned runs off of 2 Salem errors, she gave up 11 hits and a walk. Daniels was also the lone Salem Lady Wildcats with more than one hit.
