Barrington Beats Fremd to Improve to 19-0

Wednesday at Fields of Dreams was "Barrington Youth Baseball/ Softball Day."

The public address speaker asked trivia questions throughout the game between the host Fillies and Fremd.

Aspiring young Fillies who gave correct answers received 12-inch softballs signed by all the Barrington softball players.

"We like to do anything that gives back to the community," said Fillies coach Perry Peterson.

In addition to the softballs, the Fillies also gave their fans another win, the 19th of the season without a loss. For the first time since 1997, the Fillies defeated the Vikings at the Fields of Dreams.

Sophomore Samantha Deevy (10-0) tossed a 6-hitter as the Fillies came away with an 8-2 triumph over the two-time defending Mid- Suburban West champs.

"That was the most intense 8-2 ballgame I've even been in," Deevy said. "Even in the last inning, when we were leading 8-2, I was really on my toes because you know Fremd can come at you at any time."

The Vikings (7-5, 3-2) had the bases loaded with two outs in the seventh when Michelle Fischer's well-hit liner to center was hauled in by Erin Lernihan.

The Vikings struck first with 2 runs in the top of the fourth. They were first runs off Barrington this month.

After Fremd ace Ellen Stoddard retired the first nine batters she faced, Fischer led off the fourth with a single to center and advanced to second on Rachel Cohen's sacrifice bunt. She went to third on a throwing error.

Kristin Wolski reached on a fielder's choice giving the Vikings runners on the corners. Wolski then stole second before Elarde's RBI fielder's choice. Wolski scored on a passed ball to make it 2- 0.

"We really haven't been behind that often this year," said Barrington second baseman Jessica Wapotish. "We definitely battled when we fell behind. We just didn't want to lose on our home field."

The Fillies (19-0, 5-0) answered with 7 runs in the bottom of the inning collecting 4 hits and taking advantage of 3 errors.

Lernihan started off by reaching on an error, then Deevy singled with an error for runners at second and third.

Veteran shortstop Chrissy Lund brought in both runs with a game- tying triple to right.

"I knew with two runners on base we had to do something," Lund said. "The fact Erin and Sam got on base, helps everyone. You kind of get a rhythm going."

Sarah Todd then blooped an RBI single to right, which turned put to be the game-winning RBI.

Danielle Tinkoff added a 2-run single down the first-base line (scoring Michelle Moss who had walked and Todd). Abby Reed reached on an error, scoring Todd and catcher Alison Twite executed a perfect squeeze bunt for the seventh run.

The Fillies added their final run in the sixth when Lernihan's bases-loaded single to center brought home Tinkoff, who went 2-for- 3. Donna Springer and Rachel Terry were also 2-for-3.

"You've got to play seven innings and we played about five," said Fremd coach Jim Weaver.
