The Manchester Lady Squires were suppose to host Whitko Wednesday, but wet field conditions forced the game to be moved to Whitko. With the temperature in the 40’s and a little drizzle in the air the action was nothing short of blazing hot as Manchester won on a walk off home run from Cierra Carter.
Although the game was at Whitko the Squires were the home team and took the lead in the bottom of the first. Emma West would lead off with a walk and advanced two bases and two passed balls. With one out Cierra Carter would draw a walk before the Carter-West double steal was pulled off with West scoring for a 1-0 lead. Kierra Stacy would then reach on an error, putting runners on the corners when Carter scored on a passed ball to lead 2-0.
Whitko would score a run in the top of the second to make it 2-1, then take a 3-2 lead in the fourth.
The game would go to the bottom of the sixth with Whitko still leading 3-2 when the Squires regained the lead. Stacy would lead off reaching on an error. Sydney Day would then reach on a one out error with Stacy rounding the bases to score and make it 3-3. With Day on second with two outs Ellie Milam would deliver an rbi double to give Manchester a 4-3 lead.
Whitko would bounce back with 2 runs in the top of the seventh to set up the walk off bottom. Emma West would lead off with a double before Katelyn Andritsch reached on an error on a sacrifice. Cierra Carter would then end the night with a three run shot over the left field fence as the Squires won in walk off fashion 7-5.
