ORLEANS-The BFA Fairfax Bullets used seven runs in the 5th inning to break open a close game en route to a 15-1 decision over Lake Region in high school softball Tuesday.
In what has become a recurring theme for the Rangers this season, poor defense opened the flood gates for a Fairfax club that has won 27 of their last 28 games. âOffensively, weâve been doing some good things,â said Ranger coach Matt Tinker. âBut defensivelyâ¦ man, we need to figure some things out.â
Winning pitcher Amanda Varney also rapped four hits for Fairfax, 8-0, while Brooke Naylor chipped in with a pair of singles.
Sarah Burnham was 1-for-2 for LR, while Michelle Thibeault took the loss.
âWe knew weâd have to bring our âAâ game today,â said Tinker. âIâd say we brought our âD-â game. Our defense was inexcusable. Weâll go to work and be better prepared for them next Tuesday.â
