PC rallies past Lady Bruins

GRANVILLE — Putnam County rallied for three runs in the fifth and tacked on three more in the sixth to defeat St. Bede 9-7 in non conference softball play Wednesday in Granville.

PC held a 3-0 lead until the fourth inning. St. Bede broke out for seven runs to take a 7-3 lead. St. Bede pitcher Emmi Christensen cracked a bases-clearing double to give the Lady Bruins a 6-3 lead and came in to score on a hit by Christine Daley.

PC’s Monica Monroe hit a deep two-run double to the left-centerfield fence to score Pettit and Gonet. Monroe would later end the scoring for the inning.

In the sixth, pinch-hitter Allison Voss ripped a double to left. Taylor Pettit reached on an error and Carly Gonet hit a two-strike double to left. Stephanie Wilson’s hard grounder was mishandled at third and two runs scored.

Tristan Phegley led St. Bede (1-6) with three hits and Christensen added two. Christensen was tagged with the loss, allowing four earned runs on six hits and five walks with five strikeouts
