The Glasgow Lady Scotties ran into a softball buzzsaw, more commonly known as the South Warren Lady Spartans, Thursday afternoon and came away on the short end of a 13-1 decision. Glasgow falls to 2-2 on the year, while South Warren improves to 3-1.
“I was really disappointed with the approach we had coming to the park. We didn’t give good effort,” said Glasgow coach Steven Murphy. “There weren’t a lot of positives coming from this game.”
South Warren scored three runs in the first inning and one in the second to take an early 4-0 lead. The Lady Spartans tallied two more runs in the third and two more in the sixth inning to make it 8-0. They added five in the seventh.
Glasgow’s lone run came in the seventh inning. Haven Hernandez singled and moved to second on a groundout by Maggie Phelps. Katie Hinkley followed with an double to score Hernandez.
Brittany Dugger went the distance on the mound for the Lady Scotties. She gave up 13 runs, 10 were earned, on 12 hits. She walked two batters and struck out two.
Glasgow heads to Marshall County this weekend for the Marshall County Slugfest.
The Lady Scotties will play Muhlenberg County on Friday night before facing Lyon County, Calloway County and Ballard Memorial on Saturday.
