PUNTA GORDA — The Lemon Bay JV Mantas softball team crushed the Port Charlotte Pirates like a fat man on a wicker chair. You could say they beat them like a drum or clubbed them like a sandwich. Any way you look at it, the game was a good, old-fashioned whipping.
After going down harmlessly in the first inning on a strikeout and two ground outs, the Mantas sent up 22 batters in the second inning to score all 16 runs in the mercy-rule-shortened game 16-1 after 2 ½ innings. The big hit of the inning was a three run homer by leadoff hitter Carey Robinson.
