UNIONVILLE — A six-run, sixth-inning rally by Eagleville put the pressure on the Community Viqueens after the Purple and Gold led 6-0 by the end of the fourth inning in Wednesday evening’s regular season finale.
Annie Prince made sure Eagleville wouldn’t complete the comeback.
With bases loaded, Haskins crushed a double to center field to walk the Viqueens off in style, 8-6, over the Lady Eagles.
Wednesday’s last regular season game was a wild one, featuring both teams coming through with big innings.
Starting Viqueen pitcher Annie Prince worked around a bases-loaded jam in the first inning and forced a fly out for the third and final out of the inning, to leave the bases juiced.
In the second inning, Community was the beneficiary of three-straight singles by Kailani Allen, Alana Tate and McKenize Tucker, with Tucker’s single scoring Allen for the first run of the night.
In the third, Eagleville again showed poise at the plate and with one out, drew back-to-back walks before Prince struck out the final two batters to strand two more runners on base.
The Viqueens went back to work in the bottom of the fourth and blew the game wide open with a RBI single from Haskins, a two RBI double from Gracie Daniel, and another two RBI double from Haylee Webb.
By the end of the inning, the Viqueens led their backyard rival 6-0.
But the Lady Eagles didn’t go quietly.
Eagleville responded with a six-run, sixth inning that included a RBI single, two bases-loaded walks, and another two RBI single.
A sixth and tying run scored on a ground out.
In the bottom of the seventh, it was Alana Tate who set the table for the Viqueens and led off the inning with a single.
A sac-bunt by Tucker advanced Tate into scoring position.
Eagleville then loaded the bases with intentional walks to Carlie Blanton and Prince, bringing Haskins back to the plate for the walk-off two-bagger.
Haskins was the juggernaut at the plate, going 3-for-5 with two doubles and three RBIs, while Webb went 1-for-4 with a pair of runs driven in.
Tucker also had a great night at the plate, going 3-for-3 with two RBIs.
Prince pitched 6 1/3 innings and gave up five runs on four hits, but struck out nine batters.
Daniel worked 2/3 inning in relief and gave up one run on one hit.
Community ends the season on a 3-0 win streak and having outscored its opponents 28-6 in that span.
With the district slate complete, Community locked up the No. 2 seed and will host its first-round game of the District 9-AA tournament on Friday evening.
