Rising Sun’s Bryce Kendrick-
Sydney Pitts pitched a no hitter with four strikeouts and no walks. The only two Oldenburg batters to reach base were on consecutive infield errors in the second inning. At the plate, she helped her cause with two singles, a triple and three runs batted in.
Kassidy Romans and Sydney Bostic both singled and doubled with 2 RBI. Bostic also threw out an attempted base stealer and benefited from a great tag by Tyrrah Miller. Miller doubled twice in the contest.
Cora Poling singled and doubled with a ribbie. Emma Levi singled twice and threw out a runner at first base from right field.
We had production from all nine spots in the order by either hit, RBI or both. The nine-run first inning was big for this team mentally. We exorcised some demons from the two prior sectionals where we were upset in the first round. These kids are focused, determined and hungry.
Rising Sun plays Jac-Cen-Del in the semifinals on Tuesday (tonight) at 5:30 pm.
