Big inning propels Deposit past Rockets in softball

By John Bernhardt
Softball is a game of inches, a game of stops and starts that can be unpredictable at best. Sometimes one bad inning is enough to totally alter the course of a game. That was the case Wednesday when

Roxbury battled Deposit in Section IV quarterfinal action on the Lumberjacks’ home field.
Erase the second inning and Wednesday’s quarterfinal match-up was a highly competitive contest. Deposit grouped hits and walks to score nine times in the decisive frame, with the game a literal standoff the rest of the way. Deposit would advance with a 10-1 victory.

Lady Rockets roll to softball win

By John Bernhardt
Kendal Sprague is peaking at the right time. Roxbury’s pitching ace fired a pair of shutouts last week as the Rockets blanked Hunter-Tannersville 17-0 and 19-0. The wins improved Roxbury’s record to 10-3.

Sprague flirted with no-hitters in both contests. The hard-throwing senior right-hander retired the first 14 Wildcat batters she face on Friday, losing a perfect game when Kaitlin Jaeger beat out an infield single toward third base. Jaeger would be Hunter’s only base runner.

RCS boys top SCS in tight baseball opener

By John Bernhardt
Runs came in bunches Thursday in the fifth inning of Roxbury’s baseball opener. Visiting Stamford plated four runs in the top of the inning to build an 8-3 lead, but Roxbury rallied to score eight times in their half of the inning. The eight-run explosion provided just enough Rocket power as Roxbury held on to register an 11-10 season-opening win.

Two infield errors and a walk spotted Stamford two runs in the first. Roxbury scored two runs of their own to even things up in their first at bat of the season.
