With the girls 9-10 junior league winding down, Ben Lomand Connect continued its perfect season Thursday with a 16-0 victory over Ramirez Transport.
Ben Lomand hasn’t been beaten this year on Hoover and Millraney Field and nothing was going to change Thursday night. With Madison Hollis dominating in the circle and runs coming in bunches, Ben Lomand cruised to victory.
Hollis tossed a no-hitter against Ramirez Transport in a game that lasted only three innings. Hollis struck out five and walked three to earn the win.
Walks played a big part in Ben Lomand piling up runs against Ramirez Transport. Annaston McBride’s two-run double was the only hit in the first inning for Ben Lomand, but the team scored five runs as Kaylee Moore, Journey Cowan and Isabel Newby drew bases-loaded walks.
The free passes continued in the second inning as Mallori Hart and Calyn Damon drew walks before Hollis blasted a two-run double. The inning would end with five straight walks as Ben Lomand went ahead 10-0.
Hollis and McBride continued their hot hitting in the third inning to end the game. Hollis connected on a bases-loaded double and McBride followed with a two-run, inside-the-park home run as Ben Lomand won 16-0.
In Thursday’s second game, Rhealee Johnson’s 3-for-3 performance at the plate led Roger’s Service Company to a 12-3 victory over TN Warehouse.
Johnson started the scoring with a two-run single in the first inning, which was followed by run-scoring singles by Kansas Hennessee, Emily Woodlee and Ella Bond that put Roger’s Service Company ahead 5-0.
After Gretchen Stuart drilled a two-run double in the bottom of the first to make it 5-2, neither team scored in the second inning.
Johnson was the catalyst to Roger’s Service getting back in the scoring column in the third inning as her single scored Kaydee Rains.
Alora Stuart answered back with an RBI single of her own to bring in Hannah Corley, narrowing the gap to 6-3 entering the final three innings. That’s when Roger’s Service Company took over.
Woodlee scored in the fourth on an error to push the lead to four, then four runs in the fifth inning put the game away.
Johnson was right in the middle of the action once again as her two-run double gave Roger’s Service Company a 9-3 advantage. Kensley Whiteaker added to the lead with an RBI single and stealing three bases for another run.
By the time Chase Milanovich scored in the sixth inning, the game was called due to run rule and Roger’s Service Company claimed victory.
Whiteaker, Hennessee, Woodlee and Bond each finished with two hits for Roger’s Service Company in the victory. Rains earned the win by pitching two innings before Johnson entered in relief.
