Wild Drop One and Tie One in Doubleheader
The Wild and Team Mexico played a double header on Saturday after the Wild took game one of the series on Friday night. Team Mexico would take game one, but the two clubs would tie game two to end the day.
We had to go all the way to the fourth inning before the first run would score in game one of the doubleheader. Team Mexico would strike first, scoring two runs on an error by the Wild defense, making it a 2-0 Mexico lead.
That was all that Team Mexico would need as they would go on and win game one 2-0.
Lauren Regula started the game for the Wild, but would only pitch two innings. Jenna Caira came in to pitch the next three innings, including the fourth where the two runs for Mexico would score.
Morgan Rackel got the start for game two of the doubleheader, and in her first inning of work gave up a run on an RBI sacrifice fly from Sanchez. Team Mexico would lead 1-0 after the first inning.
The Wild didn't have hit in game two until the fifth inning where Jennifer Salling would lead off the inning with a triple to left center. Next batter, Emma Entzminger, would drive Salling home on a two-run home run over the left-center field wall, giving the Wild a 2-1 lead.
Team Mexico was able to bring a run home when it mattered most in the top of the seventh inning on a pinch hit RBI single by Palacios, tying the game at 2-2.
The Wild were not able to score in the bottom of the seventh, and so the game would finish with a 2-2 tie.
Wild move to 4-2-1 now on the year after the doubleheader. The series is now tied at 1-1 along with a tie, and will wrap up the three game set tomorrow, Sunday June 6, first pitch at 10:00 AM CT.
