LANSING | All season, the one thing that has hindered T.F. South's softball team more than the weather is giving the opponent a big inning, then coming up short.

Monday was no exception as the Rebels let South Suburban Blue-leading Tinley Park have a five-run third inning in the Titans' 13-3 win.

Tinley Park (11-3, 10-0) broke open a 1-0 game in the third, then added three runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings.

"We let them have five or six outs in the third and when you let a team like Tiney have that many outs, they are going to take advantage of it," T.F. South coach Jamie Arundel said. "It's one or two bad innings that hurt us. I thought we hit the ball pretty well, but we also made a few (baserunning) mistakes."

Tinley Park's Sam Alberto was 4-for-5 with five RBIs, and hit a lead-off homer in the third.

"I was seeing the ball real well today," Alberto said. "We went 1-2-3 in the first and I just wanted to make something happen. I hit a good pitch (on a full count)."

Tinley scored five times on four hits and a Rebels error to take a 6-1 lead. Its bottom third of the order was on base nine times and No. r9 hitter Mary Psaltakis walked three times.

The Rebels (5-8, 3-6) scored a run in the fourth as Cori Reynolds singled and went to second on a wild pitch. She scored on an Ashtyn Kapovich single.

"We hit pretty good today, we just have to bring the runners around, " Kapovich said. "We still have that one bad inning and that has what we also need to work on."

A double play ended the inning. Down 12-1, South added two more runs in the fifth as Mariah Witvliet doubled and Bri Heintz singled. Witvliet scored on a Marci Evans ground out, and Sydney Harrison tripled in Heintz.

"I drove it pretty good," Harrison said. "I knew I was going for third."
