Rock Bridge pitcher Kayla Turnbull did a little bit of everything Friday night, helping the Bruins beat St. Teresa's Academy 4-2 at Rock Bridge Field.
Turnbull allowed only two runs, and went 3-3 with an RBI at the plate, en route to her second win of the season.
"Our kids were able to hit with a lot more confidence tonight," Rock Bridge coach Jennifer Mast said. "It seems like once you get that first hit, the rest come a little easier."
St. Teresa's scored first, when Monica Welsh's single scored Michelle Collins from third in the top of the first inning. But in the bottom of the second, St. Teresa pitcher Amanda Konz walked Kaitlyn Canole with the bases loaded, scoring Heather Walters.
The Bruins took the lead for good in the bottom of the third. With the score tied at one, Kendall Brown and Emily Lay had consecutive singles, setting up Amy Shufelbeger's sacrifice fly that scored Brown. After a St. Teresa's throwing error, Lay also scored.
Two batters later, Turnbull doubled to left-center field, giving Rock Bridge a 4-1 lead.
St. Teresa's scored once more in the bottom of the sixth, when Turnbull walked Sara Lawrence with the bases loaded.
The Rock Bridge defense, which allowed three unearned runs in Thursday's loss to Jeff City, played solid in holding St. Teresa to only two runs.
The Bruins, who move to 2-2 on the season, will play Tuesday at Moberly.
