Kayla Pring was the MACA pitcher in this 19-0 win at Benson. Kayla tossed a five-inning no-hitter with no walks. She got all the offensive support she'd need in the first inning, and then some. How about 13 runs?
Technically I suppose this wasn't a perfect game for Pring, because a B-H batter reached on an error in the first inning. Krista Motzko was the Brave-Owl getting on base. No other B-H batters would reach base. The win was the tenth straight for coach Mary Holmberg's surging orange and black crew.
MACA hit with authority and also took advantage of B-H fielding lapses. The MACA line score was 19 runs, 14 hits and one error. Becca Holland rapped three hits in four at-bats including a double, and she drove in two runs. Piper Gibson was two-for-five with an RBI. Lauren Reimers joined the parade with a two-for-four line and four runs-batted-in.
Tracy Meichsner had a hit and an RBI. Pring came through with a double as part of a two-for-four showing, and she drove in two runs. Brooke Gillespie went two-for-four with an RBI. Lindsey Dierks had a hit and an RBI. Sam Henrichs had a hit in her only at-bat.
Pring achieved her no-hitter with two strikeouts and no walks issued Addie Forbord was the losing pitcher.
We scored two runs in the first inning and one in the fifth. Our line score was three runs, five hits and one error. Pitcher Noah Grove held the Braves to two hits in his route-going performance. Grove set down six batters on strikes and walked one.
The losing pitcher was Brady Young. The two Benson hits were by Young and Aaron Ahrndt. Young's hit was a double.
MACA committed just one error compared to four by Benson.
Toby Sayles wielded a sizzling bat for Morris Area Chokio Alberta. Toby had three hits in as many at-bats and drove in two runs. Sean Amundson went two-for-three with a run scored. Noah Grove reached on a hit-by-pitch and scored a run. Philip Anderson crossed home plate once.
The win was the eighth for the orange and black crew, against four losses.
