Softball Regional Game 2: The Cardinals took a 1-0 lead onto the top of the 7th inning against Grove in the winners bracket finals. All they had to do is get three outs to be in the driver seat of the regional tournament. The lead off batter for Grove walked. The next two batters stuck out. With a runner on first two outs and a full count Grove's picher hit the next pitch over the left field wall for a two-run homer giving Grove a 2 to 1 lead. The next Grove better struck out. In the bottom of the 7th the Cardiac Cards loaded the bases and with no outs Cardinal center fielder Marissa Huggins smashed a line drive to the right center field wall and scored 2 runs for the Cardinal victory. The win puts Collinsville in the driver seat in the regional tournament. They will have now have to lose 2 games in a row to be eliminated. -- Jim Riley 10/9/2013 -- 6pm
