Sulphur 5
Washington 0

As things often go, one solid pitching performance deserves to be followed by another.

That’s exactly what happened in the Lady Bulldogs second game on Thursday as Harley Beesley pitched five shutout innings against the Lady Warriors from Washington.

Sulphur got on the board in the top of the second when Kinlee Duck got an RBI single to center field.

Duck would make it 2-0 in the fourth when she got an RBI double to score Abby Beck.

The Lady Bulldogs gave themselves insurance runs in the top of the fifth thanks to an RBI single from Kady Lynch, an RBI groundout from Shallen Mershon, and an RBI double from Beck.

Beesley allowed just three hits while recording three strikeouts on the mound. 

The victories moved Sulphur to 8-2 overall on the season.
