Foxes However, on the night in question, the Eagles U registered eight hits, resulting in seven runs in the top of the fourth inning to take a commanding 8-0 lead.

Liberty's, Jarron. Garnette hmited the Foxes to zero runs, nine hits, and one walk, while Ashleigh Nalls surrendered seven earned runs, 10-hits,. nine strikeouts, and three walkL The Eagles took the lead in the top of the first inning, as Leslie Boujour scored on a pass-ball. In an effort to retaliate, the Foxes attempted to strike back with the bases loaded in the bottom of the first inning with no outs. As fate would have it, Boujour would be responsible for all three Fox outs. After catching a fly ball, she doubled the third base runner on a liner that instantly resulted in a double play. Later, in the top of the fourth, the Eagles offense exploded with seven runs. Taylor Maflem got the Eagles offense started with an RBI double. Two batters later, with one out, Courtney Lieze's sacrifice grounder extended Liberty's lead to 3-0. Boujour's RBI single into left field pushed the Liberty lead to 4-0. Diane McDanie[ and Emily Fitzwater combined for four RBIs on two hits, giving the Eagles an 8-0 lead. In the bottom of the seventh inning, the game was called due to repeated lightning sightings. Looking into the future, Parker believes the Foxes will be stronger than ever next season with a cast of seasoned veterans. "I fully expect that they will be back next year with more skill, more patience at the plate, and a very strong desire to move farther along than they did this year;' Parker said. As for Liberty's post-season fate, they eventually lost to Fauquier (16-6), 3-1 on Saturday, in the Conference 22 finals. With the win, the Falcons earned a quarterfinal Region home berth against Loudoun County (9-12).
