Just an evening after keeping it compelling on the road against Putnam County, the Brookfield softball team was decimated on Tuesday night by one of the finest Class 2 programs in the state.
The Bulldogs fell 2-1 on Monday to Putnam, and held a lead in the second inning when Kayedence Almond sac bunted Rylee Sensenich home following a Sensenich triple. Both of Putnam County's runs came in the following inning.
"It was a good game to watch," Brookfield coach Paige Drescher said. "The girls played great defense, and we worked out a lot of jams. We couldn't capitalize on runners in scoring position."
The next night, the Bulldogs played their final home game of the season, and had little luck against a two-loss Trenton side. Three errors in the top of the first inning contributed heavily toward the visiting Bulldogs batting around the lineup and scoring five runs en route to a 14-2 victory.
Brookfield salvaged another inning in the bottom of the fifth when the score was 10-0 by pushing two runners across on four base hits. The game ended on run rule after the sixth.
In Tuesday's game, Brookfield finished with nine hits to Trenton's 20.
Brookfield falls to 6-13 and has lost seven of its last eight games.
The Bulldogs travel to Salisbury on Thursday.
