Tammy Kendell posted 11 strikeouts Thursday night in a Corner Brook Molson Ladies Fastpitch Softball League contest that took 10 innings to decide.
Thanks in part to Kendell’s work, the Rapid Power Sports Bees edged the KSAB Rangers 9-7 in the extra-inning affair at Ambrose O’Reilly Memorial Field.
Kendell allowed 20 hits over that time, but, impressively, walked no one.
Claudette Sheppard also starred for the victors, scoring four runs in a 5-for-6 display at the plate. Kayla Brake was also 5-for-6 with two RBIs, while Jeanette Tucker went 2-for-2 and scored twice.
Ashley Penney managed three hits on six attempts, which produced a single RBI.
Donna Clarke was the losing hurler, giving up 24 hits and a walk through the 10 innings. She struck out seven batters.
Clarke was also the main threat for the Rangers with the bat, swatting five hits in six at-bats, scoring three times. Kim Jordan was 4-for-6 with a run scored, while Li Bishop went 3-for-6 with two runs to her credit.
The score was 5-5 after the seven regulation innings, before both clubs put up two runs each in the eighth to stay knotted at sevens. The ninth yielded nothing, but the Bees scored twice in the top of the 10th to take the advantage and eventually hold it.
