Simpson throws no-hitter to lead Ladycats to 10-0 win over Springtown

April 20, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo senior pitcher Sarah Simpson threw her first varsity no-hitter to lead the Ladycats to a 10-0 victory over Springtown in a District 6-4A contest Tuesday night on Senior Night at Ladycats Field.

The win - Aledo's ninth in a row - raises the Ladycats' 6-4A mark to 10-2. AHS will continue district play at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 21, at Saginaw.

Simpson allowed no runs on no hits with three walks and nine strikeouts in a game called in the bottom of the sixth on run rule.

After issuing a pair of walks in the first inning, Simpson retired the next 16 batters. She ended three innings with strikeouts, including the final frame.

The Ladycats gave Simpson all the cushion she would need with seven runs in the third inning. The big hit in the frame was a two-RBI triple by Kendall Kizer.

Aledo added a run each in the fourth and fifth innings to take a 9-0 lead. The game ended in the sixth when senior Amanda Swanzy singled to drive in senior Erin McGuire from third base.

Talley fires three-hitter to lead Bearcats to 11-1 victory

Aledo senior pitcher Ryan Talley allowed just three hits to lead the Bearcats to an 11-1 victory over Springtown in a District 6-4A game at Bearcat Field.

The win - which stopped a two-game district losing streak - elevates the Bearcats to 8-3 in 6-4A. Aledo will continue district action at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 21, at Saginaw.

Springtown scored a run in the top of the first inning to take a 1-0 lead.

But the Bearcats came back with six runs in the second and five in the fourth to take an 11-1 lead.

When the Porcupines failed to score in the top of the fifth inning the game was called on run rule.
