2A softball: Shorecrest offense explodes for 15 runs

Class 2A

Chargers unleash offense in fifth inning

NAPLES — Shorecrest ran its way past St. John Neumann and into the region semifinals. The Chargers stole seven bases and raced around the diamond after timely hits and Celtics errors on their way to a 15-3 win Tuesday.

Seventh-grade pitcher Jaque Galinski got the game ball from coach Trent Rubley after pitching five strong innings and striking out 10.

Shorecrest broke the game open in the fifth. Hayley Johnson started things off with a double and a stolen base before scoring on a passed ball. Lainey Milley's RBI double made it 9-3. After two more hits, Celtics pitcher Meagan Peterson walked in a run, then a passed ball on a strikeout made it 12-3. Stephanie Gomes delivered the knockout blow with a bases-clearing double. Gomes had four RBIs in the fifth inning alone.

Rubley wanted his hitters to make contact and his base runners on the move to make Neumann handle the ball as much as possible.

"Any time you put the ball in play it puts pressure on the defense," Rubley said.
