HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL
Pearsall collected 15 hits and stole five bases en route to a lopsided 11-0 shutout of Hondo in non-district action last Tuesday, March 8.
The Lady Mavs’ freshman pitcher Caitlyn Rodriguez tossed a five inning shutout as she allowed nine hits, struck out two and did not walk a single batter.
“Caitlyn had all the right stuff on Wednesday,” PHS Head Coach Reynaldo Ramirez said. “She is just on fire on the mound, she’s very composed for a freshman and will not walk very many batters.”
Offensively, Ebony Garza collected four hits in four at bats, doubling and singling in the first, doubling in the third and adding another single in the fifth.
Pearsall opened the scoring in the first as Destiny Sanchez doubled on a 1-2 count, scoring two runs.
Garza, Sophie Garza and Maddie Bradley all collected multiple hits for Pearsall.
“We have hitters, one through nine, and have about four more that can pound the ball,” Coach Ramirez said of his offense. “Defensively, we were even more impressive, Layla (Del Toro) threw out a Hondo runner on their only chance to score on a throw from centerfield and we turned a 4-6-3 double play earlier in the game.”
Pearsall also went error-free in the field. Garza had five opportunities in the field, the most on the team.
Pearsall improves to 20-2 on the year and sits at number six in the current Texas Girls Coaches Association state softball rankings.
The team took on San Antonio Pieper and Gonzales and Holy Cross in a double-header earlier this week. Results will be available in the next issue of the newspaper.
