Friday’s Prep Softball: Pirates No-Hit Mossyrock
By The Chronicle
ADNA — Haley Rainey and Skye Snow combined to toss a no-hitter as Adna blanked Mossyrock, 15-0, in four innings here Friday in C2BL softball action.
Rainey worked the first three innings, striking out seven and walking one. Snow then blanked the Vikings in the fourth inning on 12 pitches.
Kaylee Ashley went 2 for 2 with a homer and three RBIs for Adna. Rainey was 2 for 3 with a double, a triple and a pair of RBIs, and Snow was 2 for 5 with five RBIs.
Payton Aselton, Delaney Spencer and Olivia Rodriguez each added two hits.
“We needed to swing the bats better today and I thought we did for the most part,” Adna coach Bruce Pocklington said. “We played clean defense, we got good pitching. Tomorrow, it’s a different story.”
Adna (2-0) faces Tahoma on Saturday morning followed by Cle Elum in the afternoon in the Auburn Riverside Fastpitch Invitational. Mossyrock (0-1) hosts Rainier on Tuesday.
Williams Hits for the Cycle as Tigers Slip Past Winlock 9-6
NAPAVINE — Ada Williams hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning and Napavine held on in the top of the seventh to beat Winlock, 9-6, here Friday afternoon in Central 2B League softball action.
Ada Williams hit for the cycle, driving in five runs with a double, a triple and a home run along with the requisite single. She also started in the circle for Napavine, striking out three and walking one in three innings of work.
Cailyn Milton pitched in relief for the Tigers as an eighth grader and Napavine coach Chad Williams was pleased with her performance.
“Cailyn, we asked her to throw strikes. The defense picked it up and Ada calms everybody down with a veteran infielder out there,” Williams said. “The kids reacted well, they could have folded but they didn’t. They hit the ball and played much better after the first inning. Cailyn did a good job of keeping us in the game.”
Halley Denault added three RBIs with a double for Napavine.
Jenna Jones and Karlie Jones each had two hits for Winlock, and Addison Hall hit a grand slam in the first frame. Sabrena Barragan added a triple.
“Winlock is much improved, they’re going to be getting better and better as the season goes on,” Williams noted.
Napavine (2-0) plays at Toledo on Tuesday. Winlock (0-2) hosts Onalaska on Tuesday.
Tigers Drub North Mason in Home Opener
Centralia made the most of its first game on its home field, hammering North Mason 19-1 in non-league girls softball action Friday at Fort Borst Park.
Kylie Sharp celebrated her birthday with two home runs and six RBIs in a 4 for 4 performance at the plate. Courtney Spriggs notched six more RBIs, with a homer and a double, and McKenzie Ulrich was 3 for 4 and drove in three runs with a double.
“They were nervous in the first two innings, just opening-day jitters, and they were pretty tight in Olympia (on Wednesday),” Tiger coach David Orr said. “They had to get past some stuff, and once they put their approach at the plate together they started hitting the ball.”
Sophie Duffy got the win in the circle, tossing four innings with four strikeouts and just one hit allowed.
Hannah Porter and Jaydn Hawley each added two hits for Centralia (1-1). The Tigers host Tenino on Thursday.
