Meeker won a rain-delayed game and a regularly scheduled game to jump over Lexington into third place in the District 3A-3 standings.
Thursday's action started with Meeker up 4-2 in the bottom of the fifth with two outs and Lexington runners on first and third. Madison Gabeau got the last out and ended the threat that had existed since August 16 when rain interrupted the game. Meeker added two insurance runs in the seventh and held on to win 6-2.
In the game that was scheduled for Thursday, Meeker won 5-3.
A couple of miscues gave Lexington a 1-0 lead early in the game, but Aubrey Pruitt got on base and advanced to third on a bunt by Madison Buoy. She came in to score on a single by Kaycee Babek to tie the game at 1-1 after one.
Lexi Lopez walked to start a rally in the second for Meeker. Darien Edmonds kept the pressure on with a double to centerfield. Next, Callie Sellers hit a grounder back to the pitcher and Lopez scored with a nice slide around the catcher's tag. Pruitt got her second hit of the game with an RBI double to centerfield and drove in Edmonds to make the score 3-1.
Buoy followed with a hard grounder up the middle that the shortstop gloved, but she couldn't make the play and Pruitt came in to score to increase the Lady Bulldogs' lead to 4-1.
Gabeau singled in Madison Hedge after hedge tripled to open the bottom of the third to make the score 5-1. That was all the damage Meeker would do, but Gabeau held off Lexington to get the 5-3 win.
She struck out 10 and walked only four. She gave up seven hits.
Pruitt led all hitters with three hits and she scored twice. Babek, Gabeau and Edmonds all had two hits a piece.
Meeker is back in action Saturday at 1 p.m. at Prague in both team's final district game. Meeker is 3rd in the district and Prague is 2nd. Lexington fell to 4th and their only district game remaining is against district leading Washington.
