Lady Bulldogs Run Up 10-0 Victory
The Trenton High School softball team won big Thursday, thrashing Milan 10-0 in four innings at Johnson Field. The game was called due to the weather after the fourth inning with Trenton comfortably ahead.
Trenton got things going early at the plate with Madi Trump singling to lead off the game and advancing to third on an error. Trump later scored the game’s first run on a wild pitch. McKinley Hurley, Makaila Capeder and Ally Ockenfels all walked and Megan Lynch drove home Hurley with a single to left, giving Trenton a 2-0 lead before an out had even been recorded.
The offense picked back up in the second inning when Hurley was hit by a pitch, stole second and then scored on an RBI single by Capeder. Capeder then scored on a triple by Ockenfels, running Trenton’s lead up to 4-0.
In the third, Whitley Richman singled, Tosha Wilson reached on an error and Trump was hit by a pitch, loading the bases. Hurley drove in one with a bunt single and Capeder then cleared the bases with a double, pushing the Lady Bulldog lead to 8-0.
Trenton tacked on its final two runs in the fourth when Cassidy Cotton started a two-out rally with a single. Richman reached on a fielder’s choice and both runners scored on a single by Daryian Otto that moved Trenton’s lead to 10-0 where it would stay.
In the circle, Mallory Hooyman threw a shutout, pitching all four innings and allowing one hit and one walk while striking out one.
Offensively, Capeder had two hits and four RBIs to lead the Lady Bulldogs, who also got a hit and three runs from Hurley. Trump and Richman each had a hit and two runs scored.
With the win, the Lady Bulldogs improved to 7-1 overall on the season. Trenton will look to continue it’s strong start to the season Saturday as they host the NCMC Nan Carter Tournament, which is being played in Cameron due to the incomplete renovation of Griffin Field in Trenton. The Lady Bulldogs face Polo in the first round at 9 a.m.
