TapRooT® Softball’s Key to Success? Solid Hitting Throughout the Batting Order
The TapRooT® softball team earned their third victory of the season Tuesday night, improving their record to 3 wins and 0 losses. The bats stayed hot for team TapRooT® as they won 28-8 after the mercy rule was invoked at the end of the third inning.
The key to their success in the previous two games has been consistent hitting from the top to the bottom of their lineup, allowing them to score runs in bunches. Tuesday night was no different as they batted through the order twice in the top of the first inning. The rally earned them a comfortable 16 run lead, before team TapRooT® had even stepped out onto the field to play defense.
Said veteran Ron V. about this year’s lineup, “One through ten, no other team can match-up with our batting order, which allows us to sustain big inning rallies. Most team’s rallies go for 4 or 5 runs, but with our batting order we are able to rally for 10 or more runs in any inning.”
Major contributions from the bottom half of the batting order this week included: Jason S. (hitting 7th) launched a 3 run home run over the left field fence; and Jessica S. (hitting 8th) followed up her in-the-park home run last week with another strong hitting performance.
