LOWELL, MA--The New England Riptide lost their season finale in front of a packed house at Martin Softball Field last night by a score of 5-2 to the New York Juggernaut, despite outhitting them 9-7. The Nauts managed five of their hits in the fourth inning including a huge two run homerun by Leah Nelson. The Tide jumped on New York starter Peaches James often, but were unable to get the key hits when it counted and in the sixth, with runners at first and third, ran themselves out of the inning on a botched double steal attempt. Eight of the nine starters reached base for the Tide and Kellie Wilkerson and Rachael McGinnis each tallied two hits.
The Riptide finish the season with 25 wins and 23 losses and would like to extend
appreciation to their fans and sponsors who made this year possible. We will see
you all again in ten short months.
