Allen Park mercies Truman with strong first inning PHOTO GALLERY

The sun finally broke through, giving way to some warmer temperatures in Southeast Michigan on Wednesday afternoon. The Jaguars came out swinging early, scoring 6 runs in the bottom of the first inning against Taylor Truman, en route to a 10-0 mercy in five innings over the Cougars.

Chelsea Warga went 3-for-3, with two doubles, two RBI’s, a stolen base and 3 runs for the Jaguars. Hailey Lazarek was also 2-for-3, with a stolen base.

Hailey Genaw went 3-for-3 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored for Allen Park. Miranda Hebert recorded the win on the mound for Allen Park, which improves to 1-0 on the season.

“(We) did everything right today. Good pitching, good hitting, aggressiveness, good baserunning, made every play defensively. When you can do that, you’ve got a chance to win some games,” said Allen Park Coach Patsy Curnell.

The Cougars made three errors in the first inning, which set the tone for the team for the day.

“We had our own number early. It didn’t look like we knew how to throw a ball, we didn’t know how to catch a ball, we defeated ourselves in the first inning,” said Truman Coach Jeanna Rymski.

Truman only came out with one hit on the day against the Jaguars, and Rymski was not only disappointed, but surprised to see her team perform this way.

“By all means, this is not the same team I’ve seen play. We’re upbeat, we mesh well, but all of a sudden today we began to fall apart. We were making contact with the ball. We couldn’t catch, we couldn’t throw. I knew early on in the season defense was going to be one of the things we really needed to work on.”
