SHARE Marist’s Brooke Wyderski comes triple short of cycle in win over Lyons

WESTERN SPRINGS — Brooke Wyderski doesn’t keep track of personal stats, so Marist’s shortstop didn’t know if she had previously driven in three runs in a game this season.

The Loyola-bound senior came within a triple short of the cycle to power Marist to a 7-1 victory over Lyons in Western Springs Thursday, going 3-for-4 with three RBI.

“I was feeling really good [at the plate],” Wyderski said. “We’ve all worked hard each day to get better.”

Wyderski hit an RBI double in the first inning and an RBI single in third. She swatted the first pitch from losing pitcher Maggie Vacchiano’ in the fifth for a home run in the fifth. 

With future Loyola teammate Brooke Wilson on third, Wyderski popped out to second baseman Stefanie D’Anna for an apparent sacrifice fly in the sixth, but Wilson was ruled out for leaving the bag early.

“In every at-bat, [Wydersky] does what she can for the team,” Marist coach Denise Bromberek said.

Wyderski’s solo home run knocked out Vacchiano, who allowed seven hits and six runs in four innings. Marist collected 11 hits, including two apiece by  Alexis Rogers and Amanda McIllhany (2 RBI). 

The Redhawks (6-3-1) took a 5-0 lead in the third with three runs, including two on errors and another on Izabella Wilkinson’s RBI single.

Lyons (3-2) scored its run in the fourth on Alexus Pelletiere’s single that drove in Courtney Petrosius.

“We talked after the game about what kind of things Marist does that we want to do,” Lyons coach Dawn Schabacker said.

Winning pitcher Zariya Gonzalez allowed four hits and retired the last 10 batters.
