Sydnee Evans pitched more than well enough to win with 7 innings pitches, 3 Hits, 1 earned runs and 4 strikeouts. But 6 errors by the defense behind her was the difference as Blue Ridge gets beat 5 to 4 in last night’s game against Martinsville. Blue Ridge’s Lily Summers was 2 for 2 including a Solo HR which was the first of her career. Ashlyn Voyles added a 2 run HR, her second of the year. The Lady Knights are back in action tonight vs. Fisher at Fisher at 4:30.  Good Luck Lady Knights!
