The Lady Rattlers (6-12 overall) slipped to 2-6 in District 10-2A with two games to play, including last night’s home finale’ against Maypearl.
“Tonight’s game was a must-win, and it just didn’t fall our way,” said Tolar coach Christy Collie.
Hannah Lee managed the lone hit for Tolar, a triple. She was also the only baserunner for the Lady Rattlers as Grandview pitcher Lexi Meadows walked none, struck out seven.
Also, Grandview supported Meadows by committing no errors behind her.
