The Sylvan Hills Lady Bears didn’t have to deal with much stress in an easy doubleheader sweep over the Little Rock McClellan Lady Lions Monday evening.
The Lady Bears took the opening game 16-0, then won the second game 16-1. Both wins took only three innings to complete thanks to the 15-run mercy rule.
Each game did have innings where the Lady Bears didn’t go crazy on offense, but those hardly hurt the visitors.
In the first game, Sylvan Hills scored eight runs in the first inning, one in the second and seven in the third. As the home team in the second game, the Lady Bears were surprised to have the top of the order not score in the first inning, but came back with six runs in the second inning and another ten runs in the third when the game was called after taking a 15-run lead.
Cara Pozza had a big day with four hits in the two games. Lynlee Broadway, Kathie Hudson and Tori Crites also all had multiple-hit games on a day also full of walks and errors.
Callie Cavender started in the circle for the Lady Bears in the first game, striking out seven and giving up just one hit in the shutout win. Broadway got the start in the second game and went two innings, fanning five and giving up two hits and the lone run of the day.
Michelle Sorensen came in to pitch the final inning of the second game and quickly fanned the side.
