Sheldon pounds Ponderosa … and then some

SHINGLE SPRINGS — Flexing its offensive muscle to the tune of 10 extra-base hits, visiting Sheldon crushed Ponderosa 20-4 Friday in a Delta River League softball matchup called after five innings due to the mercy rule.

The Bruins came in needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive but that took a turn for the worse when the Huskies broke as tie with five runs in the fourth and 11 in the fifth to leave little doubt who would prevail. Sheldon hit two home runs, three triples and five doubles in addition to another seven hits off three Ponderosa pitchers.

Bruin starter Katie Pieplow appeared to get out of the top of the first inning unscathed on a swinging strikeout but the pitch got to the backstop to keep Sheldon alive. Alexis Copper’s RBI double put the visitors on the board and after a walk and single loaded the bases, Ponderosa averted further disaster when shortstop Olivia Lucatuorto snared a soft line drive in the hole.

The Huskies added three second-inning runs, all with two outs, but the Bruins came back when Rebeca Campos tripled and Courtney Jenkins’ shallow fly to right field was lost in the sun for an RBI single. Ponderosa roared back in the third to chase Cooper when Natalie Kessing doubled, Lucaturoto singled and Skye Jerpbak blasted a deep home run to left to knot the score at 4-all.

Sheldon went down 1-2-3 in the third but broke the game open in the fourth with five runs and then put the Bruins away the next inning.

Kessing, Lucatuorto and Campos each had two hits for the Bruins. For the Huskies, Dejanee Moore swung the big bat with four hits, including a home run and two doubles for six RBIs; Danielle Wiltz went 4-for-5 with a double, triple and four RBIs; Cooper was 3-for-3 with a double and triple; Danielle Henderson tripled and homered for three RBI; and Nikki Miles was 2-for-4 with a triple and two RBIs.

Ponderosa, in fourth place with a 3-5 record in the Delta River League, has home games next week against Oak Ridge and St. Francis to close the regular season.
