Lindsay softball ended their game with Farmersville last week after calling the 10-run rule just four innings into the game.

The Cardinals made a strong batting attack to win the contest 11-0.

The Cardinals rallied hard in the bottom of the second inning to bring in seven runs and add up the score to 9-0 Lindsay.

Starting Pitcher Amanda Serda held off the Aztec batters in the last two innings while Lindsay brought in two more in the third. Unable to score in the fourth inning, the Aztecs took the loss three innings short of a complete game.

The Cardinals hit hard against the Farmersville's defense, stepping up to the plate 27 times for 17 hits, nine RBI's and two doubles.

Vanessa Alvarado, Maricella Gutierrez, Ana Jauregui, Brenda Rangel, Nikki Salinas and Russie Sanders each made two hits.

Serda pitched a one-hitter game in the four innings of play. Facing 19 batters she allowed one hit, three walks and no runs. She struck out seven batters of 19.

Russie Sanders held down the plate starting at catcher for the Cardinals. She allowed only one passball against 19 batters.

In their next game the Lady Cardinals struggled in the opening game of the Fowler Tournament.

It was a close loss for the Cardinals as Selma took the 5-4 win over Lindsay.

Selma took an early one run lead at the top of the second. Lindsay answered back hard with four runs in the bottom of the fourth.

Both teams held off the other's offense until Selma's batters exploded in the sixth inning to bring in four runs. With their last at bat, Lindsay failed to bring in runners and the Bears took the one-run win.
