BHS softballers with mixed results
By Steve Powell Bainbridge Island Review • April 24, 2022 1:30 am
Sophia Peato hit three home runs and drove in seven runs to lead Bainbridge to a 15-8 victory over Bremerton after the girls fastpitch softball team returned from spring break.
The Spartans scored twice in the first inning on an RBI single by Peato and an RBI groundout by Bella Ramirez. Sage Swally started a five-run second inning with a single and stole second, then scored when Grace Colburn hit a two-out triple. Hayden Jobes singled in Colburn, then stole second and scored on the first of Laura Carrillo’s two doubles. Carrillo was aboard for the first of Peato’s big home runs.
The fourth inning was more Carrillo and Peato, as the former doubled and the latter homered. Ramirez followed with a single and scored on a double by Sophie Hoff. Colburn added a homer in the fifth, and singles by Ramirez and Sierra Berry combined with a pair of Bremerton errors made it 12-4 in the sixth.
In the seventh, Jobes tripled and scored on a wild pitch. Carrillo singled and then scored when Peato hit his third two-run home run of the day.
Carrillo pitched a complete game to earn his second win of the season.
In their next game, they lost to North Masons 10-8.
BHS scored in the second inning after Ramirez singled and scored on a groundout by Sage Swally.
In the third, singles by Colburn and Hayden Jobes, and a walk to Carrillo loaded the bases. Peato singled to drive in a run, and they scored again on a wild pitch.
BHS took a 6-4 lead in the fifth when Colburn singled and Carrillo doubled before Peato homered over the center field marker.
The Spartans were unable to hold onto the lead as their defense helped North Mason pull away for the win.
Carrillo pitched a complete game, but took the loss despite giving up just four earned runs.
In their game last week against Sequim, the visitors took a 1-0 lead in the first, but the Spartans scored two in the bottom of the inning when pinch runner Lena Dozeman scored on an error and Sophia Hoff scored on a line drive double to center by Peato.
But those were the only runs Bainbridge would score in a 10-2 loss.
Peato at third, Colburn at shortstop and Brearley Jane Curfman at second were standouts in the field throughout the game. Except in the third when they each had an error as the Wolves scored twice.
Sequim scored five in the seventh, one on a solo homer, to make the game seem less close than it really was.
