SHARE St. Charles East rallies in 7th to beat Bartlett

The St. Charles East softball team has been thriving this season with the home run ball but on Tuesday at Bartlett the Saints won by stringing together singles then getting a clutch double from sophomore catcher Riley Stout.

Trailing the host Hawks 4-2 going into the top of the seventh inning of the Upstate Eight crossover, St. Charles East loaded the bases with singles from Madelyn Candre and Katie Kolb and a walk to Alex Latoria.

Sophomore Jordan Hieber then delivered a 2-run single on an 0-2 pitch to tie the game, just before Stout cranked a 1-2 pitch to the base of the fence in left-center field to drive home Latoria and Hieber and give the Saints a 6-4 lead, which they held onto in the bottom of the seventh when junior right-hander Jordan Hall retired the meat of Bartlett’s order to preserve the win and run her record for the season to 6-0.
