FOSTORIA — Elmwood’s Lindsay George made her 15-pitch at-bat count in the bottom of the ninth inning Wednesday night as she helped the Royals advance to Saturday’s Division III regional final.  PHOTO GALLERY
The sophomore third baseman fended off fastballs on the outside corner, riseballs and changeups, but found a way to put the ball in play.
Her fielder’s choice to third base scored teammate Rebecca Harvey to give Elmwood (24-3) a 2-1 victory over New London (21-5).
“I knew I had to get it in play so the run could score,” said George, who admitted nerves were a factor. “Miranda pitched a great game ... and I just needed to get that run in so we could win.”
The Royals play Saturday at noon, at a location to be determined, against the winner of Friday’s Bloom-Carroll/Ottawa-Glandorf matchup for the regional championship and a spot in the state semifinals.
