Reed City Rage spit with Cadillac
REED CITY — The summer softball season is starting to wind down for the Reed City Rage, who split with Cadillac in home doubleheader action on Wednesday.
Cadillac won the first game 10-8 in six innings while Reed City took the nightcap 21-6 in three innings.
Maddie Morgan went the distance for Reed City, allowing no walks and striking out six.
Contributing one hit apiece were Morgan, Lily Andres, Riley Schafer, Kailie Myers, Maddy Cross and Hannah Diehl.
Reed City fired out to a 12-0 lead in the first inning of the second game and went on to win it on the mercy rule. Mia Petersen had three hits and Veronica Lofquist had two, Morgan added a triple while Cassie Enos, Myers, Cross and Diehl had one hit apiece. Lofquist was the winning pitcher, going all three innings, allowing no walks and striking out two.
“We were really young today,” coach Roger Steig said, referring to the youthfulness of the girls who played for him on Wednesday. “The thing about summer ball is you get just about a different hand to deal with every week. The girls are playing together. They’re playing good ball. It didn’t surprise me to see them come back in the second game.”
The Rage are 5-3 after four doubleheaders.
Big Rapids, also in the summer league, will host Reed City on Wednesday at the high school.
“That will be the end of the league season,” Steig said.
