Eagles rely on D for win
After some early noise, the field fell quiet.
The Centennial Eagles scored four runs in the first two inning but failed to break through again. The Barlow Bruins were poised to come back. They had enough offense and hit the ball hard through seven innings. But those hits were too often right at the Eagles' defense.
Despite the constant threats, Centennial held on at home Monday for a 4-3 win.
'(Barlow) was really tough at the plate,' Eagles starting pitcher Niki Misenhimer said. 'I didn't feel like I could get anything by them. It was hard.'
Even in the seventh inning, the Bruins were in position to tie the game. They led off the inning with a bunt single, and the next batter, Kelsey Reams, moved the runner to second.
