Jenny Reynolds threw a no-hitter against Manchester Monday night, but left the field as the losing pitcher.By TAYLOR MITCHELL
Jenny Reynolds did exactly what she needed to do inside the circle for Benton Academy’s first game of the season.
The reigning softball player of the year allowed no hits and struck out 10 batters against Manchester Academy Monday evening. However, it was one error that cost the Lady Raiders the 1-0 game.
In the bottom of the seventh with two outs and two strikes on the current batter, the Lady Mavericks got Katie Black to second base and proceeded to steal third base. Benton Academy catcher Tristen Beith double-pumped her throw to third base, which was mishandled by third baseman Lexi Guion.
Senior Nora Grace Davis put her experience to use by backing up the throw. Davis needed just a split second longer to get throw to home plate, but the runner was called safe by the home plate umpire, giving Manchester the victory.
