After a big 4-1 win from the Crushers on monday May 8th, the Indians guaranteed their spot in postseason play.

With a guaranteed spot in the postseason, now the Indians were looking for the best seed as possible. The only team standing in their way of second seed was a last placed regular season team, Armijo.

The game started out tight for the Indians, with the top of the first being one of the two innings where Armijo was either close to scoring or scoring, but sophomore Jenna Baker was able to pitch out of the jam allowing no runs to score.

“When you play a team that has struggled, and to play them after something as emotional as the Big Game, it’s a tough game to play and be focused in,” said head coach Tammy Mansuy.

Armijo had a less than stellar first inning. Samantha Burzinski, the starting pitcher for Armijo was having control issues. When Burzinski managed to find the zone, the Indians offense made her pay. Burzynski got in a bases loaded jam early, a runner scored on a wild pitch, then Napa High junior Katie O’Donnell capitalizing on the situation knocking a double up the middle scoring one. The indians continued the first inning scoring drive with a 2 run home run from junior Peyton Mott.

The second inning was light work for Baker, with a three up, three down inning. The indians offense was still extending their commanding lead with a two run home run from Baker. The indians ended the second inning with a massive lead of 11-0.

The third inning was the same story as the second for Baker, three up, three down.

The fourth inning was the only inning that Armijo scored, with sophomore Kimmie Walston allowing one run to score before the inning was ended on a pop-fly by Jordan Kelly. The fourth inning was yet another inning dominated by the Indians offense, with RBI’s coming from Brianna Bowers and Abby Arata, making it a 16-1 game

The Indian closed out Armijo in the 5th enacting the 10 run mercy rule.

“We’re thrilled,” said Mansuy, “We showed our strong offense and good defense. Im proud of these girls.”

Postseason schedules are yet to be released, but the Indians hope to take it all.
