After retiring State Park in order in the bottom of the second, Lebanon went back to work.
Sarah Tribby led off the inning with a walk and stole second base. Two batters later, Ray singled her home to make it 9-1.
After McDuffie reached on an error, Payge Redman hit a 2-run triple to make it 11-1. Payten Redman hit a single two batters later to drive in her sister to make it 12-1.
In the fourth, Payge Redman’s 2-run single to score Weaver and Keenon Gibbons capped the scoring.
Gibbons pitched the first two innings, giving up the one run on two hits. She struck out one.
Brooke Dodson pitched the final two innings, allowing no hits and giving up two walks.
Coach Redman liked the way both girls pitched.
“It is going to be big,” Redman said when asked what the game would do for their confidence. “The girls got on the mound today and they were really nervous. They came back and won the ball game. I am really proud of them.”
The other thing that really pleased Redman was the way her team fielded the ball.
After committing three errors and misplaying a couple other balls in Thursday night’s win, Lebanon committed just one error Friday night. Redman said that turn around helped show what kind of girls she has.
“They are all very coachable,” Redman said. “And really, they are just a great group of kids. They all want to learn, they take in what we tell them and we change things — that is the big difference.”
Lebanon is back in action tonight at 6 p.m. against Hebron — a team that has been out-scored 48-1 in their first two games. Lebanon will then complete pool play Sunday night against Zionsville, who has won each of their first two games by double-digits.
