Jasper picked up five runs in the top of the seventh inning Saturday to break open a close game on the way to an 8-2 victory at Southern Indiana Athletic Conference opponent Evansville Memorial. Sophomore Hillary Springer, seniors Kendyl Ruhe and Mia Werner and juniors Megan Matheis and Kennedy Matheis each had an RBI in the inning.
Memorial took the early lead with a run in the bottom of the first. Jasper tied the game with a run in the top of the third. The Wildcats took the lead for good with two runs in the top of the fifth before putting the game away with the five-run seventh. Memorial managed to plate one run in the bottom of the seventh, but that was all the Tigers could plate for the 8-2 final score.
Werner picked up the win for Jasper. She allowed two runs on three hits, two walks and seven strikeouts. Freshman Sicily Aliotta took the loss for the Tigers. Aliotta surrendered three runs on five hits, two walks and four strikeouts. Senior Morgan Carr tossed the sixth and seventh innings in relief for the Tigers. Carr surrendered five runs on five hits, one walk and no strikeouts.
The Wildcats scattered ten hits in the game with Kennedy, Simmers and Schwenk contributing two hits each. Springer went 3-for-4 at the plate to lead the Wildcats in hitting.
