Cold Day, Cold Bats in Opener

On a frigid Monday afternoon, Porter's dropped their opener to Suffield 6-0. While we played well at times, our limited outside practice on the diamond showed. Suffield's fine pitcher struck out 18 Porter's batters. On defense, our infield of D'vine Straughter ('21), Jenna Hall ('20), Maddie Guilmartin ('21), and Lucinda DeLaney ('20) all made crisp plays. Our lone senior Jess Sardilli deserved better, with ten strikeouts of her own and very few hard hit balls. Our best chance came in the 5th down 3-0. We loaded the bases with one out, but two strikeouts ended the threat. Tomorrow it's back to the batting cage as Choate awaits on Wednesday.
