Prep roundup: Carson High softball evens record at 5-5
RENO — Jailene Salceido went 4-for-4 and drove in four runs to lead Carson High to an 8-7 win over Reno in a 4A make-up softball game Saturday morning.
Carson has won two of its last three and hosts Reed on Thursday at 3:45 p.m. Carson is 5-5 in league play.
“It was a great softball game,” CHS coach Shane Quilling said. “We started with a couple of errors and were down 4-2. It was nice to get two from Reno. That hasn’t happened very often. Camryn (Quilling) hit the ball well again, and Jailene (Salceido) had a couple of big hits. It would have been nice to go undefeated this week, but we had a good week.”
Carson trailed 4-1 after four, but scored one in the fifth and six in the sixth which proved to be enough to withstand Reno’s three-run rally in the bottom of the seventh.
In the fifth, Kailee Luschar singled, stole second and scored on Salceido’s single.
The Senators took the lead for good in the sixth, sending 10 batters to the plate.
Kassidy Cooley and Camryn Quilling singled to start the inning. After Terryn Earle forced pinch-runner Alex Salceido at third, Camiell Simpson singled to load the bases. A walk to Luschar made it 4-3, and Brown also scored on the play when she never came to a stop after the walk to Luschar, and scored.
The play tied the score at 4. Salceido cleared the bases with a double to center to make it 7-4, and Bella Kordonowy followed with a run-scoring hit to drive in what proved to be the game-winning run.
Reno scored three in the seventh to make it 8-7, and had the tying run at third with no outs. Luschar made the play of the game when she caught Anja Weiss’ liner and then doubled the runner off third. Two more walks loaded the bases and Brea Pacheco popped up to end the game.
Quilling collected three hits for the second straight game and Luschar added two.
