LITTLE CYPRESS — Finding their bats again after a tough week last week and receiving a complete-game one-hitter from ace Brianna Frenzel, the Little Cypress-Mauriceville Lady Bears made quick work of the Orangefield Lady Bobcats 7-0 in District 22-4A action at Lady Bear Field Tuesday night.

The Lady Bears (19-3, 4-2), who managed just one hit in a pair of 2-0 losses to first-place Bridge City last week, found the lumber against Orangefield as they collected 10 hits on the day.

Meanwhile, Frenzel was on a tear on the mound, allowing one hit while fanning nine and walking one as the Lady Bobcats (19-7-1, 3-3) struggled from the plate throughout the game.

Frenzel, fo good measure, also ripped a solo home run.

The Lady Bears snagged a run in the bottom of the second frame.

Megan Peveto roped a two-out single up the middle off Orangefield starter Kaylee Ancelot and JoAnna Henry drew a walk. Both runners advanced on a passed ball and Olivia Leavings was able to plate Peveto with a RBI single to left.

LC-M tacked on two runs in the bottom of the fourth.

Jonee Villanueva reached on a error and Peveto drew a walk. Henry promptly plated Villanueva when she belted a double off the top of the leftfield wall.

Codie Sorge then replaced Ancelot on the Orangefield hill.

Ancelot worked 3 1/3 innings, allowing four hits while striking out two and walking two.

Leavings reached by getting hit by a Sorge pitch and Peveto scored again when the Lady Bobcats misfielded a ball hit by Madison Murdock.

Frenzel took a Sorge offering to leadoff the bottom of the fifth and buried it over the centerfield fence for a solo home run blast to make it 4-0.

Bailey Frenzel and Henry both singled later in the inning but were left stranded.

Orangefield second baseman Karlye Bramblett got the Lady Bobcats’ lone hit of the game, ripping a two-out single up the middle in the sixth.

The Lady Bears pushed across three more runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Murdock got it cranked up with a leadoff infield single., Renna Toomey slapped a single to right and Ally White drew a walk to load up the bases. Brianna Frenzel brought in Murdock with a sacrifice fly to centerfield and Bailey Frenzel plated Toomey with a sacrifice fly to left.

Morgan Weaver completed the scoring by scoring White with a hard single up the middle.

Sorge worked 2 2/3 innings for Orangefield, allowing six hits while striking out three and walking one.

The two teams will go home and re-boot and will face each other again Friday when the Lady Bobcats welcome in the Lady Bears.
