The Lady Lobo offense amassed 13 total hits on the day, eight off of Lady Trojan pitcher Jess Grefe; Anderson's starting pitcher lasted 2.2 innings, conceding seven walks. Lady Lobo outfielder Clar- issa Rayos went 3-for-4 at "1 think we did a great job of staying patient and swinging at those good pitches ... It's hard. It's easy to get antsy with pitchers like that." -Kita Adams, head coach the plate, with two RBIs, a walk and two stolen bases. Staying patient despite inconsistency from Grefe paid dividends for the Lady Lobos. According to head coach Kita Adams, Lehman has struggled at times with discipline at the plate. "I think we did a great job of staying patiem and swinging at those good pitches," Adams said. "It's hard. It's easy to get antsy with pitchers like that. We did a good job with that." In addition, the Lady Lobos thrived on the base paths, using their aggres- sive style and speed to cause issues for Anderson. Lehman gained a 1-0 first inning lead following a sacrifice fly RBI from Lady Lobo Gabi Marfinez. They proceeded to load the bases with two outs. But base running mis- cues hindered Lehman, ending the threat; a similar theme followed LOB0 SOFTBALL, 2B PHOTO BY MOSES LEOS III Lehman High's Aleza Ruiz (left) slides into home plate as the Anderson Lady Trojan catcher applies a tag during a play at home on Saturday at Lehman. BY MOSES LEOS III For three innings Friday, the Lehman Lobos were seemingly on their way to ending their two game losing streak to the Hays Rebels. But a two inning Lehman meltdown al- lowed Hays to rall as the Rebels cruised to a 7-4 win at Hays High. "Early district games are important," Hays head coach David Null said. "It's an incredibly tough district so anytime you can get a district win, it's a big deal." Seven combined runs scored in the fourth and fifth innings spurred Hays' comeback; six of the rims were earned. Adjusting to Lehman starting pitcher Micah Tambur proved success- ful for the Rebels. Tambur went four innings, giving up four runs on four hits. He struck out five batters. Hays' Josh Burnett said communication and "talk- ing to each other" helped Hays decipher Tambur's style. "We had to adjust to the off-speed and all kinds of stuff," Burnett said. "We had to sit back and let it travel." It was Tambur that proved a pivotal force in the first three innings. Using a powerful fastball and a deceptive breaking pitch, Tambur faced the minimum nine batters, recording five strikeouts. Lehman's offense countered by scoring a unearned run in the first inning off of Hays pitcher Trey Dickerson. They added a run in the second inning, started by a single from Luis Jimenez.
