The Trenton Lady Bulldog softball team, on a night that saw seven seniors honored in their last home game, blitzed the visiting Carrollton Trojans with two runs scored in three straight innings, part of a 7-0 victory at Griffin Field on Wednesday night, in action broadcast on Hot Country Z 101.7.
Trenton opened the scoring in the bottom of the second, with Rahel Horner beating out an infield single that scored Avery Whitaker, with a bad throw from the Carrollton second baseman scoring Makaila Capeder. Whitaker and Capeder had led off the second inning with singles.
Two more runs scored in the third inning to make the score 4-0, as Maddie Hooyman singled, stole second, moved to third on a wild pitch, and scored on a Scotlin Hurley single. The Lady Bulldogs played “small ball” for their fourth run, as Capeder squeezed home Madi Trump on a bunt play.
Trenton's lead went to 6-0 in the fourth inning, with Cassidy Cotton scoring on a Trump single, and Horner scoring on a sacrifice fly by Hurley. The seventh and final run for THS scored in the sixth inning, as a ground-ball out by Mallory Hooyman scored her older sister Maddie from third base.
Hurley threw a gem for Trenton, taking a one-hit shutout into the seventh inning, and finishing with a two-hitter, as Carrollton picked up a hit and reached a batter on a fielding error, but stranded those two on base.
Trenton, now 19-3 on the season, will play at South Harrison on Thursday night at 5:00.
