"It takes a little bit of time," Lee said about his offense finding its grove late in games. "Especially in the cold weather today. It takes time to figure out what the strike zone is going to be from the umpire, so I thought they did a nice job."
The Lady Eagles responded with their own two-run inning in the bottom of the frame. Sara Maxey started the inning with a single to center field, and Megan Maxey brought her home with a double to center that snuck through the legs of Windsor's Allie Bridges to give Megan an extra bag.
"That's one thing about this group, they never give up" Lady Eagles coach Megan Burrus said. "We've got a 2-9 record and we've been down, but one goal is to never get shut out. They found a way to put a run on the board."
The final St. Elmo/Brownstown tally came off a sacrifice hit from Savannah Feezel, but the 5-2 score was as close as the Lady Eagles would come.
Windsor scored two more in the seventh, and Floyd struck out the final three St.Elmo/Brownstown batters to close the game at 7-2 and keep the winning streak alive.
Floyd gave up four hits in the win, striking out 13 by the end of the afternoon.
Austin picked up the loss, surrendering 13 hits in 5.2 innings of action. Austin left in the sixth after taking a hard line drive to her throwing hand, but Burrus said her pitcher will be alright.
Baylee Scholes pitched the remainder of the game and had a strong showing, striking out two in just 1.1 innings.
"That's all you can ask of a kid," Burrus said. "Sam's hand will be just fine, the cold weather makes it hurt a little more."
