Rogers High softball coach Mike Harper had some simple instructions for Emily Kinney before the start of the bottom of the seventh inning against Rogers Heritage in a 7A/6A-West Conference game Tuesday.
“If you get on, we will get you in,” Harper said.
That proved to be the case.
Kinney opened the seventh with a double to deep center and pinch runner Sydney Duvall stole third before scoring on a perfect bunt by Maddy Prough as the Lady Mounties defeated the Lady War Eagles 3-2 at Veterans Park.
Rogers (8-8, 4-2 7A/6A-West) trailed 2-1 after five innings but scored single runs the final two innings to notch the victory.
