SEYMOUR — Offensive inconsistency has hurt Seymour this year and that was the case again as they fell to Martensdale-St Marys 6-3 on Monday.
Seymour has scored less than five runs in each of their seven losses this year. In those losses, they have scored an average of one run per game. The Warriorettes are 7-0 when scoring five or more runs. In those games, Seymour is averaging 10.7 runs per game.
The scoring opened in the third inning with Hannah Hinners and Nadia Howell hitting RBI singles. But Seymour would strand runners on second and third, as Martensdale-St Marys’ outfielders were showcasing strong throws to home, before they could do anymore damage.
Martensdale-St Marys would get those runs back in the fourth inning to tie the game at two. Seymour would get another chance to have a big inning, loading the bases in the forth for Natalee Watters. Watters would get under one and fly out to left field to end the inning.
Martensdale-St Marys would then take the lead in the fifth inning with back to back doubles as part of a three-run inning to take a 5-2 lead. Thayda Houser would get one back for the Warriorettes, ripping a RBI double to left.
Houser would come up again in the bottom of the seventh, representing the tying run with two Warriorettes on base. Houser and then Judy Campbell would both fly out to end the game.
Houser took the loss in the circle, pitching all seven innings while giving up six runs, four earned, on seven hits with three walks and five strikeouts.
Seymour (7-7) will hit the road on Tuesday at 6 p.m. to play Mormon Trail (0-11).
