Warriors split with Cougars

DANVILLE — After falling to North Putnam in extra innings in its doubleheader opener on Saturday, the Danville softball team finished in grand fashion to take the second game, 20-5.

“I wasn’t very pleased with the first game,” said Danville coach Jennifer Chasteen. “I wish that we could have made more of an adjustment to their pitcher. She pitched a good game and had a lot of strikeouts. We just didn’t adjust to it. The second game, we made more adjustments. We started out with the short game and tried to hit the ball after that. It worked out for us.”

In Game 1, each team scored one run in the first inning before the pitchers took over, dominating the next seven.

North Putnam eventually broke through in the top of the eighth to escape with the 2-1 victory.

Danville freshman Samantha Glaser tossed the first seven innings before giving way in the eighth and receiving a no decision.

“I was pretty pleased with (Glaser),” Chasteen said. “She is a freshman and it was her first game pitching and she went the distance.”

North Putnam got off to a quick start in the second game as well, scoring three times in the top of the second inning. However, Danville scored six times in the bottom of the frame and never looked back.

Kaiti Skinner led off with a double, before a bunt single by Emma Dwyer. Glaser then knocked them both in with a double to left-center field. Hannah Kelly reached on an error and Kendall Startzman then drove in a run with a fielder’s choice. Kathryn Butterfield singled in another run, before Delaney Stephens doubled in two more.

After the Cougars scored one in the fourth, Danville’s offense exploded with 11 runs on seven hits in the bottom of the frame. Skinner had three RBI in the inning, Butterfield and Stephens each knocked in two and Haleigh Kelly and Glaser drove in one.
