The Lincoln County Lady Patriots took the Lady Jags down to the final frame of last night’s varsity softball game with East coming from behind to claim a 6-5 victory. 

The Lady Jags were led by senior Katlyn Robinson’s three-run home run in the bottom of the seventh inning.   

East Jessamine had eight hits on the evening with Kaley Naylor leading the team with two hits along with hits from Hannah James, Haylee Stansbury, Allie Lane, Maddie Stinnett, Karlee Terral, and Katlyn Robinson.

Hannah James pitched all seven innings allowing five runs (three earned), six hits, and struck out twelve.

The Lady Jags took a 3-1 lead into the seventh inning before Lincoln rallied for four runs and carried a 5-3 lead into the bottom half of the frame.  Stansbury started off the inning with a hard ground ball up the middle, which Naylor followed suit with a line drive to left field to put runners on first and second with no outs. 

After Mallory McDowell grounded into a fielder’s choice, Stinnett advanced the runners to second and third with grounder to the second basemen. 

Robinson took the first pitch of the at-bat over the right-center field fence to win the game in walk-off fashion.
