Eaton Reds prevailed after a major shift in momentum against the Limon Badgers with a powerful comeback in the fourth inning over the weekend on Aug. 18. Senior Allie Hobbs led the return with her first bat of the inning resulting in a home run. The epic home run streak was continued by Tristin Brandly (19), Jaymie Woody (21) and Jenni Jarnigan (21). Hobbs said, “I just knew that the energy needed to be picked up…I didn’t go up trying to hit one [a home run] I just knew that with the lead being off in that situation I needed to get something started.”

The beginning of the game appeared favorable to the Reds as the first two innings ended in a 4-0 lead for Eaton. The Badgers succeeded to get on the board, causing the score to be 6-1. The Badgers retaliated in the top of the fourth inning, scoring 8 runs. By the middle of the inning the game was completely reversed and the Badgers led by 3 with a score of 9-6. It was Eaton’s turn to bat as Allie Hobbs took the game into her own hands, hitting a home run on her first bat. Eaton’s head coach,  Chad Shaw said, “That sure sent them a message.” The crowd and team were ecstatic. Melanie Fye (19) batted after and made it to second base on her third hit. Lauren Frink (19) also contributed, making it to first base instantly. Next up to bat was Tristin Brandly (19) who hit a clutch homerun, giving Eaton the lead once again with a score of 10-9. Jaymie Woody (21) complemented Brandly’s home run with another one directly after. Soon after, Jenni Jarnigan (21) scored a homerun of her own, ending the fourth inning at 12-9, Eaton at top once again. The fifth inning was less eventful as neither team scored a run. It was not until the sixth inning that Eaton closed out the competition completely, scoring 7 runs and ending the game 19-9. The Reds continue their winning streak with a 3-0 record.
