Williamson suffers loss in Charge debut

LANCASTER, Pa. — The Pennsylvania Rebellion and the Dallas Charge played in the second game of a two game series last Saturday at Clipper Magazine Stadium in Lancaster, Pa.

The Rebellion were able to earn a split of the series with a victory when they trounced Dallas by a final score of 15-1.

After each team was set down in order in the first inning, the scoring started in the bottom of the second when Rookie shortstop Chaley Brickey’s sacrifice fly pushed across the first run of the game and gave the Rebellion a 1-0 lead.

The Rebellion offense exploded in the third inning when they scored seven runs and sent 10 batters to the plate.

Dallas got on the board in the top of the fourth when left fielder Kylee Lahners hit a solo home run, her first of the young season.

The Rebellion kept the hot hitting going in the bottom of the fourth by plating five more runs.

The final blow of the day for Pennsylvania came in the form of another home run. The 2016 NPF College Draft First Overall Pick, Lexie Elkins, hit a two-run bomb on the very first pitch she saw in her career. The blast extended the Rebellion lead to 15-1.

Pitcher Miranda Kramer led the Rebellion in the circle with her strong effort this afternoon. She tossed five innings while allowing just one run on five hits and striking out seven in the win. Pitcher Emma Johnson came in to pitch the sixth and seventh and allowed just one base runner in two scoreless frames.

The Charge’s Andi Williamson (0-1), a Harts native and Chapmanville Regional High School graduate, took the loss in the circle allowing six runs in two innings, five of which were earned.

The Dallas Charge (1-1) were scheduled to start a three-game series versus the Chicago Bandits on Wednesday in the Windy City.
