Lady Rattlers falter late

March 30, 2013

The Tolar Lady Rattlers were dead even with visiting Maypearl Tuesday.

Except for the final inning.

Maypearl scored three times in the top of the seventh for a 5-2 victory against the Lady Rattlers (12-9, 2-2 in 10-2A).

“They would score, then we would come right back,” said Tolar coach Christie Collie.

In the top of the seventh, with two outs, Maypearl’s 1-2-3 batters came up with clutch hits.

“We had runners in scoring position, but we just couldn’t get our clutch hits like we have been providing in past games,” said Collie.

“Maypearl didn’t outhit us, they just got the hits at the right time. That’s a tough game to lose.”
