Carroll at Boone
The Carroll Tigers were able to grab that elusive first Raccoon River Conference win as they survived a nine inning game against Boone Friday.
The Tigers got their offense started with seven runs scored between the first and third innings. Parker Adams knocked a double to get on base and was brought home off Ava Gross’ RBI single. The Tigers had a massive five-run second inning that was headlined by Josie Ayala’s two RBI double. Along with Ayala, Brielle Hinners, Averi Burke, Makalei Kofron, and Gabby Olberding were able to run home for scores. The Tigers capped off a solid start with another run from Burke who knocked a triple and scored off a sacrifice hit from Kofron.
While Boone was down 7-2 after the third inning, they slowly creeped up and was able to tie the game in the seventh inning. They scored solo runs in the fourth, fifth, and sixth innings, and had their biggest inning in the seventh that tied the game at 7-7. Boone’s defense was also keeping Carroll away from getting more runs. Josie Ayala was able to get to second base in the seventh, but that ended up being the only runner to get on the bags in four innings. Carroll’s luck did eventually change as they rattled in one run in the top of the ninth when Adams was brought in by Gross’ RBI double. The Tigers closed out the game defensively and were able to win their first game in conference play by a final score of 8-7. Camryn Schable spent eight innings in the circle and allowed seven earned runs while recording two strikeouts.
The win improved the Tigers to 10-14 overall on the season and 1-11 in the Raccoon River Conference. The final competition of the week for Carroll will be the Kuemper tournament being held on Saturday, June 25th.
