November 10, 2020
Following the Arizona Fall Invitational, Voodoo Rhinehart played in back-to-back weekends, traveling to Las Vegas for the PGF Surf City Las Vegas Showcase.
Coach Rhinehart was able to add two additional games to the schedule, so the team played seven games over three days at Majestic Park.
The team started off strong on Friday beating Easton Preps 18U 7-2. Emma Nagy had a solid outing in the pitching circle, allowing only two hits and zero runs over two innings. Christie Tadvick and Lizzie Tieskoetter went 2-3 at the plate, and Alex Nyberg and Olivia Glover each collected two RBIs.
The bats cooled in the second game of the day. The one hit was a single by Lizzie Tieskoetter in the sixth inning. Voodoo lost 0-3 to Batbusters Gomes/Clark 18U.
In a late evening game on Friday, and despite a strong performance by Lindsay Ferguson that included seven strikeouts, the team still could not get the bats going and fell to Bat Company 18 Gold 3-1.
On Saturday, Voodoo Rhinehart continued to struggle at the plate with a loss to Las Vegas Rage 5-1. A bright spot in the game was a double by Sydney Warren in the fourth inning. Emma Nagy started the game, with Mia Rogers and Lindsey Murai pitching in relief.
Lindsay Ferguson got the start in the second game on Saturday against SoCal Athletics McCarthy. SoCal Athletics were a strong hitting team, and Voodoo took the loss 4-0 in the last game of the day. Ferguson also had a double in the third inning.
On Sunday, the last day of the tournament, the bats got hot, and the team recorded 12 hits in a 11-1 win over USA Athletics Malone. Lizzie Tieskoetter, Lindsay Ferguson, Brooke Tilson, and Mia Rogers each had multiple hits in the game. Emma Nagy got the win in the circle giving up only one run and three hits over three innings.
The last game of the tournament ended in a tie with USA Athletics 18 Gold. Voodoo found themselves down 0-4 after the second inning but battled their way back. Christie Tadvick tied the game with a 2-RBI double in the fifth inning. Lindsay Ferguson pitched a complete game recording two strikeouts.
