It was a no-fly zone Saturday, at least for the Lady Jets, as the Lady Pioneers blanked Cumberland County, 16-0, staying undefeated in the district this season.
Lady Pioneer Ashton Whiles couldn’t have pitched a more perfect game throwing a no-hit shutout for four innings, with 3 strikeouts and 1 walk, while Warren County’s offense scored 16 runs to end the game early by run rule.
The Lady Pioneers (6-3, 3-0) started early, scoring 2 runs in the top of the first when Hailey Wood scored off a Skyler Youngblood single, 1-0, and Emily Mikkola scored off a sacrifice fly by Whiles, 2-0, before ending the inning.
The second inning wrote the book for Warren County as the Lady Pioneers scored 8 runs, giving them a 10-0 lead after just 2 innings.
Mikkola drove home Lexie Chadwell and Wood with a line-drive double, 4-0. Mikkola scored again off a Neva Tackett single, 5-0, and Youngblood tripled on a line drive to left field driving in Tackett, 6-0.
Hope Mullican batted in courtesy runner Makenna Mason, 7-0, followed by a single by Madison Mason and a Kyra Hillis hard ground ball to centerfield scoring Mullican, 8-0. Chadwell’s hard ground ball to centerfield scored Mason and Hillis for 2 runs, 10-0, ending the inning.
The Lady Pionners added one more in the top of the third as Youngblood drove in Tackett with a hard grounder to center, 11-0.
Warren County added the last 5 runs in the top of the fourth as Wood scored off a Mikkola double, 12-0, Youngblood drove in Mikkola, 13-0, and a long fly ball home run by Whiles scored Makenna Mason, 15-0.
Finally the Lady Pioneers would score 1-more run as Hillis hit a fly ball that was bobbled in center and Madison Mason scored, 16-0.
Cumberland County went out in the bottom of the fourth 1-2-3 to end the contest.
Youngblood went 4-for-4 at the plate as the Lady Pioneers collected 17 hits. Mullican, Tackett, Mikkola, Whiles and Wood all had 2 hits apiece. Madison Mason, Hillis and Chadwell all had 1 hit each.
