Cape Gazette SPORTS & OUTDOORS TUESDAY, MAY 9 - THURSDAY, MAY 11, 2017 27 By Nick Roth The bats were white-hot for the Sussex Tech softball team May 4, as the Ravens soared to a 21-11 six-inning win over Cape in Lewes.  The Ravens scored at least one run in all six innings. After two quick outs in the second in- ning, Tech loaded the bases for clean-up hitter Jaykayla Sample. Sample connected with a pitch and sent it way out of the park for a grand slam to put the Ravens up 7-2. Sample finished the day 4-for-5 with seven RBIs for Tech. The Ravens busted the game wide open with a seven-run third inning. Three singles loaded the bases for Brooke Ward, who blooped a single into center- field to score two runs. Ward went 4-for-5 with four RBIs. Yet another single, this time from Madison Watson, added another run before Sample added two RBIs to her tally with a double. Rylee Shockley finished off the run-scoring barrage with a two- run homer to pad Tech’s lead at 14-2.  But Cape never gave up the fight. They responded in the bottom of the third with four runs of their own. Then, on the brink of going home early in the fifth, the Vikings plated five more runs to cut into Tech’s lead 18-11. Savannah Reed got the scoring going with an RBI single. Ryleigh Elliott followed with an RBI double. Then with two on and two outs, Sara Lallier smashed a three-run homer. Jordyn Virden slugged a two-run homer earlier in the game to get the hit parade going. Kelsey Huling went 4-for- 4 with four singles.  The two teams combined for 30 hits in the game.  The Ravens improved to 12-1 on the season with five games re- maining. Tech was slated to host Milford May 8, before welcoming Dover Tuesday, May 9. Cape’s record dropped to 7-7 with the loss.
