DE-fense! DE-fense! TapRooT® Softball Improves to 2-1
The TapRooT® softball team improved to 2-1 Tuesday night with a 13-2 victory. The victory came after the mercy rule was invoked in the 5th inning.
While team TapRooT® has yet to show the explosive offense that was their signature in the spring season, their defense continues to baffle opponents.
The infield played flawlessly on Tuesday turning two double plays to end innings and barely missing a third (Miguel Maria, Ron Verlinde and Jason Sturm turned the plays at shortstop and second base) .
Kori Manes (First Base) made several nice plays on tough throws to help out her fellow infielders.
Yet, the MVP this week had to be Pitcher Jason Hilliard who continued to find the strike zone all game long and refused to give away free base runners with walks.
Back on track, Team TapRooT® looks to start a winning streak next Tuesday.
