Lady Rangers Bow Out of Post-Season, Lose to Otter Valley 10-2

June 6, 2013

OTTER VALLEY-The curtain closed on the Lake Region Rangers’ softball season Wednesday, as the girls in blue fell to Otter Valley 10-2.
“It’s not like they (Otter Valley) knocked the cover off of the ball. They 10 hits, but 3 were bunts singles, and 3 more were squirrely little squib hits.
“But their hits were timely, and when you walk 8 and make a few errors, there was always someone on base when they did get a hit. We had two or three of the hardest hit balls all day, but right at someone. Their shortstop and catcher were outstanding defensively,” said LR coach Matt Tinker.
