The Lytle Lady Pirates had a big week and went 2-0 for the week by defeating Pearsall 3-1 on Friday night. The Lady Pirates played a great defensive game behind Emily Stevens, who once again pitched a great game. We were able to execute our bunt game to perfection and scored enough to keep us alive in the 29-AAA playoff race.
Great performances were turned in by Andrea Valdez, Amber Estrada, Araceli Garza, Ashlynn Seviere, Melanie Jaramillo, and Carli Diver. There was a strong wind blowing in from center field that robbed Carli Diver of a 2 run homerun, but that same wind allowed Amber Estrada to make a Willie Mays-type over the head catch that probably won the game for us because the bases were loaded with Lady Mavs when she made that great catch.
We are very proud of the effort being put forth by these ladies. They faced adversity all game and they kept responding.
We play tomorrow at home against the Carrizo Springs Wildcats. We invite you to come early, get loud, and stay late! Come support these hard working Lady Pirates! Game times are 5 and 7.
Coach Martinez and Adams
