Richmond:: silences Buckfield for second time

Richmond softball stops Buckfield

...Richmond (4-0) scored its first four runs thanks to three Buckfield (3-1) errors in the opening two frames for a 4-0 lead. Then the bats went to work at the plate, with Meranda Martin (3-for-4, double, two RBIs, three runs scored) belting an RBI double and Camryn Hurley following with an inside-the-park home run for a 7-0 advantage for the hosts after three innings.

“We made a couple crucial errors that hurt us, and you can’t make routine errors against Richmond,” Buckfield coach Sandy Albert said. “Those errors hurt you when you’re facing a good team.”

“We got on base, bunting in the first inning to put pressure on them,” Richmond coach Tony Martin said. “These are always good games with Buckfield. The score was 8-1, but they had some nice hits.”

Richmond used small ball to get things going early, as both Martin and Hurley bunted for hits, with Meranda Martin scoring on a throwing error for a quick 1-0 Bobcats lead.

Richmond:: rally sinks Traip in 7th

Richmond rally sinks Traip in 7th

... “Reilly was on fire tonight, like she normally is; (Richmond) said they had never seen pitching like that and she was on,” Traip coach Chris Andrews said. “Then the two-out curse. We needed that win; that would’ve been a big win right there and could’ve locked us up (for a tournament spot).”

Eddy piled up a season-high 16 strikeouts, allowing zero earned runs on four hits and three walks, but Bryanna Lancaster and Mackenzie Abbott each delivered one-out singles for Richmond (7-0).

After Ashley’s Brown’s sacrifice bunt moved runners to second and third base, Martin’s ground ball was booted to allow Lancaster and Abbott to score.

“Our girls hadn’t seen a girl like that all season. We started to hit a little bit, a little bit and then the last inning the bottom part of the order came up and they came through,” Richmond coach Tony Martin said. “The girls just stuck with it and kept a positive attitude. That’s a good team, (Eddy) is a good pitcher and this was a great game.”

Richmond softball team keeps mammoth win streak going
Winners of 81 straight, Bobcats insist they aren't focusing on the run.

... Richmond’s streak could have hit 100 by now if not for a 4-2 loss to Penobscot Valley in the 2012 state title game. The Bobcats were unbeaten at 18-0 going prior to the loss. Martin’s older sister Leandra, who was on the mound for that game, is an assistant coach with team now.

Meranda pitched in three state championship wins and has never lost a game in a Richmond softball uniform. She hopes to be there for her fourth go-round and Richmond’s fifth straight title.

“I think we’re coming together very well,” Meranda said. “We have a lot of people that have stepped up this year and filled some important roles that we lost last year. We have great team chemistry and everyone gets along.”

Richmond silences Buckfield for second time

...But, in the third, with two outs and nobody on, Buckfield coach Sandy Albert decided to have Shields pitch to Underhill-Tilton. That turned out to be a big mistake as the righty launched an opposite field home run to start the Bobcats on their way to a 12-1 victory.

“I was frustrated. They walked me, and it was one in my wheelhouse and I just hit the ball,” Underhill-Tilton said. “It is always hard at Buckfield, but keeping the energy going all game long was huge for us.”

“It is not easy to keep her patient,” Richmond coach Tony Martin said. “Syd hits the ball hard, and teams pitch around her. What she does for us is huge. They gave her one pitch and she hit that line shot.”
