Lady Warriors Softball Team Plays The Waiting Game

By Nicky Romero

The Socorro softball team will play the waiting game this week, but continue to practice as usual. The team is waiting to hear on Sunday if they are invited to play in the NM State AAA Tournament that will be held on May 14-15 at Las Cruces. Only the top 16 teams from around the state will be invited.
Socorro (11-13, 3-6) finished their regular season with two road wins on Friday, April 30 against the Hot Springs Lady Tigers (0-19, 0-9). The first game was won by the score of 15-1 in five innings. They won the second game 21-2 in four innings.
In the first game, Socorro scored one run in the first, third, and fifth innings. They had a big seven run inning in the second, topped off by a Maureen Trujillo homer to right field. Socorro added five runs in the fourth for a shortened 10-run rule victory.
Trujillo got the win with three strikeouts and only three hits allowed. The only Hot Springs' run allowed was in the fourth inning on an error.
Brittany McDaniel went three for three at the plate followed by Trujillo's three for four. Vanessa Jojola added two singles.
The second game was over by the end of the first inning. The Lady Warriors scored 11 runs thanks in part to nine walks and two hit batters. They also scored one run in the second and posted nine more runs in the fourth for a short 15-run rule lopsided win.
Trujillo was again the winning pitcher, with six strikeouts and only two hits allowed. Socorro defense allowed one run each in the first and third innings, both unearned.
Courtney Edmister went two for three, with a triple and a single. Chantilly Gallegos hit two for three, with a single and a double. Amber Bennett helped with a two for two day, with a single and a double. Trujillo had two hits in her three at bats. Kristen Gonzales contributed two singles.
