Pride Stay Hot, Beat Bandits 9-0 in Disney Opener
USSSA Pride Release:
The USSSA Pride continued their winning streak against the Chicago Bandits with a dominating 9-0 win on Thursday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista.
Pride pitcher Cat Osterman (5-4) had an outstanding outing, allowing only three hits and one walk in the shutout, and striking out seven.
Kelly Kretschman started the game off for the Pride with a sacrifice fly that brought shortstop Natasha Watley in. Jessica Mendoza kept it going in the next inning, hitting a 3-run double to solidify the Pride's lead.
The offense didn't stop there, though. Andrea Duran hit a homerun to start off the fourth inning and was followed up shortly after by Kristyn Sandberg, who hit a deep 2-run homerun, bringing the score to 7-0.
Ashley Charters scored the eighth run of the game after Watley was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth.
The home runs continued into the sixth inning, when, on her first at bat of the game, Charlotte Morgan hit one deep into left field, bringing the score to 9-0.
The Bandits once again struggled with pitching, bringing in three different pitchers in the course of the game, each pitching about two innings before being yanked from the game.
