Franklin softball comes back for win against Mansfield

After dropping a game to Franklin earlier this season, Mansfield looked to avenge that loss on Monday afternoon. After scoring four runs in the bottom of the first the Hornets looked poised and ready to gain revenge against the Panthers. However, Franklin starting pitcher Sabrina LoMonaco settled in and the Panther bats came through with timely hits on way to a 6-5 victory to move two games above Mansfield.

Down 5-3 going into the top of the sixth, Franklin’s bats were held to just four hits but they doubled that in the inning as they came through with three runs on four hits to take a one run lead going into the bottom of the sixth, which eventually turned out to be the difference of the Kelley Rex showdown. Olivia DaGiacomo collected the first hit of the sixth on a single to right and Alyssa DaSilva followed with an infield single. Alicia Donovan then loaded the bases on a single to center. With two outs, Erin Hanley, who was hitless in the game, cleared the bases on a three run triple to right.

“Olivia DiGiacomo got us going there with the two RBI triple that she had and then Maddie Connelly had another RBI that knocked Alicia Donovan in,” Franklin head coach Kate Fallon-Comeau said. “We just never quit and just kind of scratched and crawled our way back into the game and Erin Hanley knocking those three huge runs in with that triple – she was huge for us.”
