LANSING | T.F. South was on the verge of a great comeback win Tuesday.

The Rebels had put three runs across in the bottom of the seventh, but Lemont reliever Carly Jaworski slammed the door as Lemont hung on for a 5-4 South Suburban Blue Conference win.

Four errors and some baserunning blunders cost the Rebels (1-3, 1-2) and coach Jamie Arundel said that was one of the things she was concerned about.

"I thought in the field we did not play that bad, but we really hurt ourselves on the bases," Arundel said. "We had three innings, the first, fourth and fifth where we took ourselves out of (potential) big innings. the seventh too."

Freshman Devin Pieper threw a complete game, striking out six and giving up three earned runs.

"Devin pitched a really good game and she battled even after taking one hard (on the leg)," Arundel said. "With just two seniors, we have a way to go. we had one bad inning (the fourth) in the field."

The Rebels outhit the Indians 13-8 with Cori Reynolds having three hits and an RBI.

"I felt confident at the plate," Reynolds said. "As a team, we put the ball in play and we came back, but it wasn't enough."

Sydney Harrison, Tiambris Tate, Daviea Cowans, Marcy Evans and Brianna Heintz had two hits each. The bottom third of the Rebels order was 4-for-8 with two runs scored.

The Rebels scored in the bottom of the third when Harrison singled in Heintz, but the Rebels ran themselves out of a bigger inning.

Lemont (5-1, 4-1) capitalized on two South errors to take a 2-1 lead. It added single runs in each of the fifth, sixth and seventh innings with Maddy Vermejan's seventh-inning homer proving to be the difference.
