Lady Rams move to 3-0 in 6-3A after 18-0 win

By TONY EIERDAM

FORT WORTH – Mineral Wells swatted 16 hits, including senior catcher Reagan Patterson’s seventh home run of the season, and freshman pitcher Kelsey Keeton limited Fort Worth Diamond Hill to only one hit as the Lady Rams cruised past the Lady Eagles, 18-0, here Friday night in a District 6-3A game that was called after four innings due to run rule.

The win keeps the Lady Rams in a first-place tie with Kennedale as both sport 3-0 marks.

MWHS will have a tough stretch this coming week as it travels to Springtown on Tuesday and comes home Thursday to face Kennedale.

“We were hitting the ball hard all up and down the lineup,” Lady Rams head coach David Tarver said. “Kelsey did a good job of mixing up her pitches and changing speed on her pitches, everything was working for her and Reagan called a great game.” In a rarity in high school softball, Tarver has so much confidence in Patterson that he lets her call the pitches.

“Reagan,” Tarver continued, “is in one of those (hitting) grooves, and she is having a great senior season. Reagan has seven homers, but she could very easily have twice that many when you count foul balls that have cleared the fence and several other balls that have hit the fence.

“It was also nice to see BB (Bethany Allen) hit the ball hard, and she is finding her stride. Chandler (Ortiz) came through and Hope (Patterson) crushed the ball. Every player was productive.”

The Lady Rams put up four runs in each of the first and second innings, and in the third and fourth frames scored five runs each.

Reagan Patterson finished three for four with a single, triple and homer that produced seven runs batted in. She had a bases-clearing triple in the third inning, and in the fourth frame sent a three-run home run over the fence that nearly landed on Northwest 36th street.

Allen went two-for-two with a sacrifice fly and reached base three times, scoring all three times. Hope Patterson went three-for-three with a double and three RBI, and Keeton also drove in three runs courtesy of a double, single and sacrifice fly.

Ortiz, Makayla Nance, Anjelica Trevino, Victoria Huffman, Tabby Santibanez and Addi Singleton each collected a hit, with Ortiz and Huffman each driving in a run.

Keeton allowed just one hit – a bloop hit to right field – walked one and struck out nine.

    "Physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come...
