Bees split DH with Oak Glen

FAIRMONT — On a brisk early Saturday morning, it took the East Fairmont softball team a few innings to get warmed up.

During the first game of a doubleheader against Oak Glen, the Bees were defeated, 7-6.

Taking the loss on the mound was Tori Postlewait, who went six innings, allowing eight hits, six strikeouts and two walks and allowed three earned runs.

Although she took the loss, her defense didn’t help her cause. Kicking ball after ball forced the Bees to fall behind, which in turn, made the deficit too much to overcome.

Tallying hits for EFHS in game one were Mikayla Moore, who went 1 for 4; Hannah Ferrell, 1 for 3 with two RBIs and a run and Postlewait, 2 for 4 RBI with a double and run

Jasmin Johnson went 2 for 4 two doubles, an RBI and scored twice; Katie Fairbee tallied a single and an RBI; Leeanna Downey singled and scored a run and Sydney Postlewait singled.

In game two, East Fairmont’s bats awoke in an 18-14 rout over the Golden Bears.

Helping the Bees’ cause in game two was the fact that they got hits in clutch situations.

“We had a bunch of hits and we needed every one of them,” East’s head coach John Postlewait said. “It seemed like every time they got on base they scored, so we needed to get crucial hits late.”

East was up by eight runs, 11-3, at one point during game two. Then, all of a sudden, Oak Glen came back.

The Golden Bears scored 10 runs in the fourth, narrowing the gap to 13-11.

“We battled back and got the bats going and scored some runs to pull back ahead," Postlewait said.

Earning the win on the mound was Ashley Martin, who seven innings and had seven strikeouts and two walks.

On the offensive side, EFHS was led by Johnson, who went 4 for 6 with a double, three RBIs and scored three times.

Postlewait went 3 for 6 with a triple, two RBIs and scored three runs; Kayla Summers, 2 for 4 with an RBI and scored four runs; Martin, two singles, three RBIs and a run; Fairbee, two singles and one RBI; and Downey, two hits, including a double, two RBIs and a run.

Sydney Postlewait also sparked EFHS’s offense, going 3 for 4 with a double, two RBIs and a pair of runs. Moore added a single and scored, while Ferrell contributed two hits with two RBIs and scored three runs.
