Fast-pitch Softball: Jayden Carter tosses three-hit shutout to lead Webbers Falls over Gans
GANS — Senior pitcher Jayden Carter threw a three-hit shutout to lead the Webbers Falls High fast-pitch softball team to an 8-0 victory over host Gans on Tuesday.
The game was called after five innings due to heavy rain.
Carter was on her game allowing only three singles in four innings in the circle while walking none and striking out three.
Ashlyn Pense, Madison Carter and Samantha Shanks all went 2-for-3 at the plate for the Lady Warriors who picked up their first win of the season.
Lexi Raskey had a two-run inside the park home run while Jayden had single and scored a run.
Shanks scored a pair of runs while Madison scored the first run of the game on a wild pitch in the top half of the first inning.
Shanks led off the second inning with a bunt single, one of two the freshman had in the game, and would steal second and third base before scoring on a wild pitch in the top of the second.
Gans pitcher Katie Lindsy was able to get out of the third inning unscathed despite allowing back-to-back singles to Pense and Madison to start the inning.
The Lady Warriors broke the game open in the fourth and fifth inning scoring three runs in each inning.
Webbers Falls took advantage of three Gans errors in the fourth scoring on each before Raskey hit her two-run inside the park home run in fifth.
Webbers Falls will compete in the Whitesboro Tournament this weekend.
Lindsy had two of the Lady Grizzlies’ three hits in the game. Lindsy singled in the first and fourth inning.
Jordyn Miller singled in the third inning for the other Gans hit.
