Tossing 11 strikeouts against Crothersville, Morgan Gabbard dominated the circle.
Gabbard tossed a no-hitter against the Jackson County foes, as the Cougars won 13-1 on Tuesday at Crothersville.
The Cougars scattered 12 hits, scoring four runs in three separate innings.
Trinity coach Chad Goecker was pleased with his team and his pitcher tonight.
“Morgan did a great job pitching,” Goecker said. “She did a good job controlling the ball, and she hit her spots well.”
Goecker also was pleased with his hitters, especially with a new batter in the box.
“We had a player come in, Maren Wrenger, and got two hits,” Goecker said. “She did a great job. A lot of girls hit the ball very well. We are still making a few fielding errors but we’re working through it.”
The Cougars’ hot streak at the plate kept true, as they had three doubles and nine singles.
Taylor Reynolds recorded two of the three doubles for the Cougars while leading the team with four RBI.
Four Cougars recorded two hits apiece.
The Tigers scored their lone run in the third inning, when Torri Boldery reached first on a Cougars error.
She moved into scoring position on a ground ball hit to the Cougars shortstop.
Boldery came home on an error by the Cougars’ right field.
“We focus on getting better,” Tigers coach Brian Huey said. “From last year, we’ve improved a lot. We’ve got a long schedule ahead of us. Today’s game, we weren’t on our top game like we should have been.”
Huey feels his team needs more timely hits.
“We could be more selective with our hitting,” he said. “We’ve got a long schedule ahead of us. We’ll come into it.”
Trinity moves to 3-1 for the season, and they play Thursday evening at Indianapolis Lutheran before the New Albany Invitational on Saturday.
Crothersville dropped to 0-2 and plays at Lanesville tonight.
