Sauk Centre softball

What a way to end the game and to get the win! The Sauk Centre softball team turned a triple play in the top of the 7th inning to end the game and come away with a 1-0 win over Holdingford in the South Sub Section softball tournament. Sauk Centre will now play Albany Thursday at 5:00 in Waite Park. Albany beat Pierz 5-4.
Holdingford had runners on at first and second with nobody out in the 7th. A line drive was hit at Sauk Centre second baseman Taylor Borgerding. Borgerding caught the ball just before it hit the infield dirt. She quickly threw to second base to short stop Morgan Gamradt to get the second out, then Gamradt fired to first to complete the triple play, both Holdingford runners did not get back to the base after Borgerding’s line drive catch and the triple play ended the game.
The only run in the game came in the 6th inning. Morgan Gamradt tapped one in front of the plate, the ball was fielded by the pitcher but Gamradt beat the throw to first base. The next batter, Mikayla Olson put down a bunt in front of home plate, the pitcher fielded the ball and threw to first but Olson beat the throw. Both runners moved up a base on a wild pitch. Sauk Centre’s Amanda Lahr put the ball in play by hitting a ground ball to the Holdingford shortstop. Gamradt came in to score, running on contact and Sauk Centre took a 1-0 lead.
Winning pitcher Amanda Lahr had good control through out the entire game. Holdingford only had one hit, Lahr struck out 4.
