Playing the same team twice in one week can be a tricky proposition as the Lady Panthers traveled to Monmouth on Thursday to play Monmouth-Roseville after defeating the Lady Titans on Monday 11-1. The Panthers repeated their tactic of scoring early and often and it worked to perfection as the Panthers picked up a 9-4 win.

EP’s usual starter, Wynn Renkes, got the afternoon off from the circle with Lilly Swatos getting the start and Ayden Klendworth working in relief holding M-R to 4 runs on 4 hits, striking out 9 and walking 6.

For the second game in a row the Panther offense was clicking from the start as the first three hitters reached base with Jaylynn Hamilton leading off with a single followed by aa Alyssah Padia double and a walk by Swatos. The Panthers earned their first runs on a fielder’s choice and an error by the Titan shortstop to take a 3-0 lead.

EP kept their offense in gear in the second inning with Mya Weidel leading off with a single followed by a hit-by-pitch and a walk. A passed ball and a single by Swatos made it 5-0 Panthers with Hannah Ryan driving in the Panthers sixth run with a single.

While holding the Titans scoreless the Panthers added to their lead in the top of the fourth with three consecutive doubles. Padia, Swatos, and Renkes combined to put the Panthers up 8-0 with Klendworth adding a fourth double in the inning to make the score 9-0 after 3 1/2 innings.

Monmouth-Roseville got on the board in their half of the fourth scoring on a Panther error and a two RBI single.

The Panther pitching continue to shut down the Titans allowing just one run, a solo home run, the rest of the way to give the Panthers their third win in four days.

The win pushed the Panther record to 4-5 as they host Newman on Friday.

Alyssah Padia had a big day at the plate for EP going three for three, with two doubles, scoring three times collecting one RBI and a walk. Ryan, Swatos, and Renkes each had a hit and two RBIs. The Panthers banged out 10 hits and committed just one error in the contest.
