Though they did not score first, the Lady Indian softball team crossed the plate most often in a run-rule win Tuesday against Mansfield Timberview.

Lillian Graham allowed a first-inning Lady Wolves run but bounced back inside the circle to strikeout 12 Timberview batters, walk one and allow just two hits in the 11-1 Waxahachie win.

Timberview scored on a double to take its only lead of the ballgame in the top of the first inning. The Lady Indians were then sat down in order in the bottom half.

Sharrika Levingston led off the bottom of the second inning with a single and scored two batters later when Kaylie Burdine doubled down the left-field line. The two-bagger and RBI tied the game at one.

Waxahachie then sent seven batters to the plate in the bottom of the third inning and scratched three runs on hits by Kameron Ryer (2-4. RBI) and Levingston (2-2, 2RBI, 2R, BB).

Ten Lady Indians stepped into the box in the fourth inning and used three hits — highlighted by a Graham double — to score six runs for a commanding 10-1 lead.

Waxahachie eventually "walked-off" winners after a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the fifth inning for the 11-1 run-rule win.

Ryer, Levingston and Graham all notched two hits on the evening, while Hope David, Levingston, Graham and Burdine led the way with two runs batted in, each.

The Lady Indians are now 12-5-1 on the season and 4-1 in District 10-5A.


Waxahachie returns to action at 7 p.m. Friday at home against Lancaster.
