Related Topics NEO HS Staff By Catrina OlsenParma, Ohio — Thursday night might be just what the doctor ordered for the Rocky River Pirates. After a crushing defeat by Holy Name, the Pirates came back to defeat Valley Forge not once but twice this week.“I think this is a confidence booster for the team,” Rocky River coach Jeffrey Hammond said.With a score of 14-3, these girls showed no trace of a defeat and came out of the dugout with bats on fire. Scoring six runs in the first inning was an early momentum builder for the Pirates, which set the tone for the rest of the game.The Pirates recorded 24 total hits on the day, six of which came from Nani Meese and Maureen Cain, who both went 3-for-4, scoring two runs each.Maura McIntyre also had a big day, going 2-for-4 with two runs scored.Even from the bench, the cheers and communication was non-stop. That played a huge part in their success.While the runs did not stop in the first inning, they did slow down a bit. On a day when things were going right for the Pirates, that may have been Hammond’s only issue with how his team finished the game.“I would have liked to see the girls be more patient, use more aggressive baserunning and not slow down on the scoring,” the coach stated.Hammond allowed all his pitchers to pitch, (something uncommon for typical games), but he made sure they each got a chance on the mound.With the win, Rocky River improves to 5-3 (3-2 GLC) and travels to Shaker Heights for a double header on Saturday, April 15.Valley Forge (1-4, 1-4) is back in action the same day, hosting Fairview.
MANCHESTER, England (CMC):Head coach Phil Simmons wants his batsmen to hit the ground running from the first Test to avoid West Indies having to play catch-up in the three-Test series, which bowls off here next month.With concerns already surrounding the Caribbean side’s batting, Simmons said he hoped the senior players would be at their best from the start, as West Indies chase their first series in England in 32 years.“I think most of the senior batsmen are seasoned players,” Simmons told reporters via Zoom from Old Trafford.“Mentally I think they’re tough, but I think we just need to continue working on our skills, because I think, when you look back at Kraigg, Roston and Shai, they’re mentally tough because they’ve done it at this level, so it’s about making sure they’re sharp and ready to go in the first game. “We’ve had occasions when we’ve toured and only after the first game we start really playing cricket, so it’s something we’re trying to get out of our system and make sure we are ready and raring to go when we get to Southampton.”West Indies were guilty of a slow start on their last tour here three years ago, when they were rolled over cheaply for under 200 in each innings, to slump to an embarrassing innings-and-209-run defeat inside three days at Edgbaston.And while they bounced back with a stunning win at Leeds in the second Test to level the series, they crumbled to a nine-wicket loss at Lord’s in the final Test.That series defeat extended the Windies’ poor record in England, but Simmons said the side was highly motivated to alter that history.“It’s only two weeks before the first Test match and preparation has to go to the next level, so we’ve started that today.”
