Alberta captures bronze at Women’s Baseball Invitational Championships

Team Alberta ended the week the way they started it, in walk-off fashion.

In the bronze medal game at the Baseball Canada Women’s Invitational Championships against B.C., Alberta captured a dramatic 7-6 walk-off victory. It was their third walk-off win at the national tournament featuring Canada’s best female baseball players.

In their tournament opener, Alberta also knocked off B.C. 7-6 with a walk-off hit in the seventh inning.

On Monday, Alberta led 6-2 in the top of the seventh inning but B.C. rallied for four runs to tie the game at six.

Red Deer’s Hayley Lalor singled to left field to start the late game rally. After a single from Haylee Sidor, Kaitlyn Ross walked and Cydnie Moore was hit by a pitch to score the winning run and clinch the bronze medal. Lalor had a strong day at the plate, with two hits, including an RBI triple.

In the fourth inning, with Alberta down 2-1, Kelsey Lalor also delivered. On an 0-1 count, she ripped a double, scoring two runs. She finished the game with two hits and three RBI. That hit kick-started a five-run inning for Alberta.

Ontario beat Quebec 6-2 to earn its third straight title at the event.
