Thursday, the Lady Trojans took on the Bridgeport Fillies for two games in Bridgeport. 

The girls came out strong and scored three runs in the top of the first inning, thanks to dropped third strikes and great heads-up base running by Devyn Smith, Jasmine Pascacio and Karina Mendoza. Bianca Alexander pitched the full first game. Bridgeport scored 7 runs in the first inning. The second inning was a bit quieter for the Trojans. Smith was the only run to score, after reaching base on a dropped third strike and stealing her way to third. She scored on a single by Pascacio. The Fillies answered with 4 more runs. Alexander had a strikeout. Alexander got on base in the 4th. Perla Villasenor came on to run. Villasenor capitalized on passed balls and eventually came in to score. Bridgeport scored two in the 3rd inning and three in the 4th to make the final score 16-5. 

Pascacio and Mendoza started off the second game with some momentum. Pascacio walked and advanced around the bases on past balls. Mendoza hit a single that scored Pascacio. Unfortunately, that would be the only run for the Trojans in this game. Diocelina Cervantes pitched game #2 and the Fillies came out ready to play. They put the ball in play and capitalized on a few errors by the Trojan defense. The final score was 16-1 after three innings. 

The Trojans were fired up and motivated through both game. This was the loudest and most enthusiastic they have been so far this year, and it showed. They are really starting to click as a team. Hopefully that will carry over into the next week of games. On Saturday, the Lady Trojans travel to Brewster for their last road trip of the year.
