Designated hitter, Esther Cohen stepped to the plate in the bottom of the 7th inning, with bases loaded, 1 out and a 2-0 count to punch a single through the right side of the infield to win game 2 for Skyline.
After tying the game at 2 in the 4th inning, the Eagles continued errorless play and solid pitching by Mayah Alam to keep the Bedford batters off the base paths. Then in the 7th, with darkness setting in, Makayla Klein led off the inning with a key single to right field. Gabbie Toth followed with a fly ball that dropped in and put her at 2nd, moving Klein to 3rd. Bedford then intentionally walked Madie Czajka to create the force. But Cohen entered the batter’s box and ended the game.
Cohen and Nyeli Kratz each had 2 hits in the game. Alam struck out 12.
