St. Aloysius’ promising season came to an end Thursday, laid low by one bad game and one bad inning.

Stringer rallied for six runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and won 9-4 in Game 2 of its first-round Class 1A playoff series with St. Al.

The victory gave Stringer a two-game sweep, and its second playoff series win over the Lady Flashes in three seasons.

Stringer took Game 1, 17-4, as St. Al committed seven errors and lost in four innings via the mercy rule.

Game 2 was far more competitive until the Lady Red Devils seized control in the sixth inning.

Madison Scoggins’ two-run single gave Stringer a 5-4 lead and kickstarted the winning rally.

Two walks and two more RBI singles by Madison Parker and Jaime Wade padded the advantage.

St. Al (12-10) got a runner on in the seventh inning, but she was stranded at first.

Kaitlyn McCurdy went 4-for-4 with two RBIs for Stringer (20-4), and Wade went 3-for-4.

Six Stringer players had at least two hits apiece.

Madison Heggins went 2-for-3 with a triple and two RBIs to lead St. Al at the plate, and Julie Mabry had two hits.

Sarah Hudson also had an RBI single.
