Sports Hays Free Press May 10, 2017 Rebel Softball Continued from pg. 1B a no-hitter in Friday night's 4-0 victory. The next afternoon, she held Brennan to three runs in seven innings in her Saturday afternoon start, along with a timely single to centerfield that drove in two runs in the fifth inning. Instead, with the crowd hanging on every pitch, she pinged a soft fly ball to centerfield for the second out. Hays never scored again, drop- ping the second game, 4-3, and forcing a do- or-die third game in the series. Brennan took advan- tage of its fortuitous break with a quick rally in the eighth inning. Bears third baseman Kayla Sanchez connected on a pitch high in the zone fromValdez for a one-run home run to deep centerfield - one of the few mistakes Valdez made all series. And it proved to be costly. Hays responded with three quick outs to end the game, unable to match Sanchez and the Bears' late scoring punch. Besides Valdez, Hays' only source of of- fense in the second game came from a one-run home run from Annalise Rodriguez in the third in- ning that drifted towards left field. The roles switched in the third and decisive game of the series. This time around, it was the Rebels playing a game of catch-up and Brennan trying to maintain a lead to advance to the next round of the playoffs. ilililiiiiiii~ PHOTO BY MOSES LEOS III Hays High's Brianna Rodriguez (center, right) hugs teammate Kaylin Davis after the Rebels' season came to a close in a 3-1 loss in Game 3 of the best-of-3 series against the San Anto- nio Brennan Bears. Below, Hays Rebel head softball coach Lisa Cone argues with an umpire after officials made a controversial call that brought Hays' half of the sixth inning of the third and decisive game of the series with San Antonio Brennan to a close. Brennan took a 1-0 lead early in the contest before the Rebels equal- ized with an RBI triple from Rodriguez. Brennan manufac- tured a run in the fifth frame to take a 2-1 lead. The Bears then caught a break in the sixth in- ning via a controversial call made by umpires who deemed the Rebels, which had runners at first and third base with two outs at the time, ad- vanced a runner illegally, causing officials to call the final out. Brennan took advan- tage of the momentum by scoring an extra run in the sixth inning, giving them a 3-1 cushion head- ing to the final inning.
