CUBETTES DROP REGION SEMIFINAL OPENER

Cubette pitcher Meg Morris gave up only two hits.

The Brenham Cubettes will need to stage a double-header sweep if they’re to keep their 2017 season alive.

Thursday night the Cubettes fell to Barbers Hill, 2-0 in the opener of their best-of-three Region Semifinal—despite out-hitting the Eagles 6-to-2.

One of the Eagles’ two hits was a two-run homer from the Eagles’ Rebecca Miller in the 3rd inning for the only runs either team would score on the night.

The Cubettes (24-11) were able to get runners in scoring position several times throughout the evening, but 13 strikeouts hampered their scoring efforts.

Meg Morris (23-8) pitched well enough to win on most nights, striking out eight Barbers Hill (33-3) batters and walking just two.

But winning pitcher Meagan King held the Cubettes off the scoreboard with a complete game shutout.  King did not walk a batter.

Kelly Jurden was 2-for-3 with a pair of singles for the Cubettes, while Shae Harris had a triple and Annine Cangelosi doubled.  Kat Marshall and Brette Kohring each added hits for the Cubettes.

Brenham must now sweep Friday’s double-header set for 6:00, back at the University of Houston.
