Wildcats fastpitch survives scare, 4-26

Mount Si’s fastpitch softball team narrowly avoided a scare from an unlikely source yesterday.

The Wildcats, who had beaten the lowly Mercer Island Islanders by the score of 15-1 earlier this season, needed two runs in the sixth to break a 4-4 tie and escape with a 6-4 win at South Mercer Playfields on Mercer Island in a game which originally was scheduled for Mount Si but was switched to MI’s field due to the weather. Celine Fowler led the way, going 3-4 with a double, two stolen bases and two runs. Britney Stevens had a 1-4 day with a run and RBI to pace Mount Si, who plays Interlake in a rain makeup game today.

Lauren Smith, Jenny Carroll and Eleni Trull also had hits for the Wildcats, with Carroll’s being a double. Pitcher Lauren Padilla got her second start in as many games in the circle, and continued to pitch well, giving up four earned runs on six hits in six innings, walking one and striking out two.
