Johnson's walk-off hit highlights J-L sweep over Leelanau St. Mary
By Jared Greenleaf -- Gaylord Herald Times

JOHANNESBURG — The games keep coming for the Johannesburg-Lewiston varsity softball team — and the Cardinals keep on winning.

This time, the Cardinals captured one of their wins in very dramatic fashion in what ended up being a sweep — 9-8 and 14-6 victories — over Leelanau St. Mary in a non-conference doubleheader on Monday.

Trailing 7-3 going into the bottom of the fifth, the Cardinals (12-4) rallied to tie the game at 7-7.

However, St. Mary retook the lead after scoring a run in the top of the sixth.

After the Cardinals tied things up again, it was all up to Emma Johnson to deliver the late-game heroics.

Johnson did just that, smacking a walk-off RBI single to give the Cardinals a thrilling come-from-behind victory in the opener.

Johnson finished with a team-high three hits and scored three runs for the Cardinals, while Jamie Burke had two hits, an RBI and two runs scored, Reagan Sides added to hits, including a triple, and a run scored, and Jayden Marlatt tallied two hits, an RBI and a run scored.

Emily Crandell (RBI), Cassie Tallman (RBI) and Autumn Vermilya (double, run) registered a hit apiece for JoBurg.

Marlatt earned the win on the mound, pitching all six innings, striking out 12, allowing eight hits and walking one.

The Cardinals kept things rolling in game two, opening up an 8-1 lead in the bottom of the third and never looking back to capture the sweep.

Marlatt's three doubles, RBI and two runs scored fueled the JoBurg offense, which received two doubles and a run scored from Johnson, and two hits, two RBI and two runs scored from Crandell. Vermilya (double, two RBI, two runs), Sydney Townsend (triple, RBI, two runs) and Sides (double, RBI, two runs) all added hits for the Cardinals.

Marlatt was the winning pitcher for JoBurg, striking out two and allowing one hit in 1 1/3 innings pitched. Vermilya tossed 4 2/3 innings of relief, striking out three, allowing seven hits and walking four.
