Tysinger No Hits Brevard In Softball League Opener
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba swept both ends of a South Atlantic Softball doubleheader with visiting Brevard which was highlighted by Carley Tysinger's second career no-hitter on Saturday afternoon at Whitley Field. The Catawba Indians won by the scores of 3-0 and 3-1 to improve to 18-9 overall and 2-0 in the SAC. The Tornados fell to 10-18 and 0-2.
Tysinger was dominate in the opener as she allowed only four base runners, all reaching after being hit by a pitch. The senior fanned 15. She would also pick up the win in game two to improve to 12-4 on the year and notched 11 more strikeouts. Tysinger upped her career strikeout total to 1,099 and moved into 18th on the NCAA II all-time list.
The Lady Indians offensive provided a two-run homer in each win. Delane Smith had the honors in the opener and Morgan Brann connected in the nightcap with her team-leading fifth of the year. Caroline Turner had three of the Lady Indians' six hits in game one, while Brann collected three in the second game with Gina Gerone adding two.
Turner got game one started with a leadoff double in the home half of the first. She moved to third on a sacrifice by Kristen Stinnard and scored on a sacrifice fly from Brann. Turner singled in the third and scored on Smith's two-out homer that made it 3-0.
That was more than enough support for Tysinger. She hit two batter with two outs in the first before a ground out ended the frame. She stranded a runner at second in the second after hitting leadoff batter Ashleigh Ivey. Tysinger would sit down the next 16 batters before hitting Hanna Huckabee with one out in the seventh.
Catawba struck for all three of its runs in game two in the first inning as the first five batters recorded hits. Smith doubled home the first run and Brann followed with her home run. Ivey had a bunt single to start the Brevard second, moved up on two ground outs and scored on a wild pitch as the lone Tornado to cross the plate.
Jamie Hrobak (7-10) took the loss in both games for Brevard. She surrendered the three run in game two on eight hits with six strikeouts. In the opener, only two of the runs were earned, as she allowed six hits and fanned five. Ivey and Mary Cloninger had two hits for the Tornados in the nightcap.
Catawba travels to Newberry on Tuesday for a 2 pm doubleheader against the Wolves.
