by: David Ball Gresham shortstop Emma Bird tags out Reynolds Bryanna Hickmon in a rundown near third base during the Raiders 17-7 win Tuesday night.

The Reynolds bats came alive Tuesday night, bringing in multiple runs in all but one inning during a 17-7 softball win at Gresham.

The Raiders pulled away in the fifth inning when Kelsey Oldham bounced a two-run double to the fence in left field, extending the team's lead to 12-7.

Reynolds started another scoring spurt in the sixth when Melissa Teyema reached safely on a dropped third strike out of the lead-off spot. Sam Oldham crushed a hit into the center-field fence for a two-run double, and came in herself when younger sister Kelsey lifted a home-run ball past the scoreboard - a blast that put the 10-run mercy rule into play.

'It was just one of those days where we were able to sit back and wait on pitches,' Kelsey Oldham said. 'Eventually we got her timing down.'
