Freshman Abby Wesche struck out four, walked one and allowed one hit in Decatur’s 16-1 win on Monday.

(April 12, 2019) After two scoreless innings on Monday in Berlin, the Stephen Decatur softball team generated eight runs in both the third and fourth innings and went on to win, 16-1, over the Wicomico Indians.

“We had a couple untimely strikeouts. We were seeing the ball OK, but we were hitting it up in the air. The first time through the lineup we didn’t make the best contact,” Decatur Coach Scott Kurtz said. “Timing was better the second time around. It just took us a little time to get going offensively.”

Kurtz said he was a little concerned after the first two innings, but he was confident the Lady Seahawks’ bats would produce.

“If we could get on base, I knew we could move them around,” he said. “They’ve all been playing so long, they stayed calm and didn’t get flustered. Things started to click the second time through and, once we got started, things started to roll from there.”

Freshmen Alexa Eisemann and Skylar Griffin had two hits and two RBIs each. They also both scored twice.

Senior captain Lexi Black (one RBI) and freshmen Zoe Rayne (one RBI) and Abby Wesche each had a hit.

Wesche pitched all five innings for Decatur. She struck out four, walked one and allowed one hit.

She threw a really nice game,” Kurtz said.

Decatur will host the Nandua Warriors today, Friday, at 4 p.m. Saturday, the Kent Island Buccaneers will travel to Berlin for a 1 p.m game. The Pocomoke Warriors will come to Berlin Monday for a 4 p.m. match. “If we play our best, we should be fine,” Kurtz said.
