Eastern Arizona’s Late Inning Rally Falls Short in Loss to Temple

The Eastern Arizona College softball team put on a furious late inning rally today but came up just short in an 8-7 loss to #3 Temple College from Texas.

Eastern trailed 8-1 in the 5th inning when they pushed across 5 runs to cut the lead to 8-6. Kana McCoy hit a solo homerun in the top of the 7th to cut the lead to one, but the Gila Monsters couldn’t get the tying run across and fell 8-7.
