Millbrook scored in each inning at Wakefield on Wednesday afternoon as it defeated the Wolverines 20-7 in five innings.
Micaela Mook, Ellie Barron and Rylee Thomas each scored three runs in a contest that saw the Wildcats register only nine hits but draw 17 walks.
Millbrook jumped out to an early 6-0 lead. Mook singled and scored on a bases-loaded walk by Thomas, then Juliana Martinez plated a pair on a base hit.
Wakefield answered quickly with two runs in its half of the first. Taylin Cain earned a leadoff walk, scored a batter later on a Peris Pavlinac double, then watched Kelsey Morgan plate Pavlinac to trim the deficit to four.
The Wildcats extended their lead to 8-2 as Mook scored following a second inning walk and Brianna Whelan did the same after third inning free pass.
Morgan started the Wolverine third inning with a double, advanced to third on a Sam Masinick single and came home following a two-run Tyson Burgess single to left. Burgess came home a play later and Shalyn Thompson made it an 8-6 game through three after a single to score Kathleen Rimmer.
Millbrook sent 24 batters to the plate over the course of the next two innings as it secured its victory via run rule.
Rimmer was responsible for the loss in relief after striking out two but allowing 12 runs on five hits and nine walks.
Five Wolverines registered two hits or more in the game, led by Burgess’ 3-for-3, two RBI performance at the plate. Pavlinac hit a pair of doubles and scored two of Wakefield’s seven runs.
Thomas led Millbrook offensively and tossed a complete game in the circle with three strikeouts. At the plate, the junior went 2-for-2 with two walks, a hit by pitch and three runs scored.
Martinez drove in three runs on a pair of hits, and a walk drawn as Millbrook opens the season with a win, the first in the varsity career of head coach Tim Blough.
The Wildcats stay on the road as they travel to Heritage on Friday night. Wakefield will look to pick up its first win of the season on Thursday at Broughton.
