Sullivan Earns Another Blowout FRC Victory
Playing their third and final game of the week, Sullivan’s offense was as potent Thursday as it was Tuesday.
The Lady Eagles won another blowout and added another Four Rivers Conference victory in a 15-0 win over New Haven.
Sullivan (13-2) is off to their best start as a program since 2005 when the team went 19-2 through the first four weeks of the season. In three games last week, Sullivan outscored St. James, Northwest Cedar Hill and New Haven 47-0. The Lady Eagles have won seven straight games while outscoring foes 89-4.
Thursday’s win followed the same blueprint — an unstoppable offense and an unhittable pitcher. The bats rocked Lady Shamrocks starter Sarah McKernan for 16 hits and 13 earned runs. For the second straight night, Sullivan didn’t strikeout.
Abbey Daniel was 3-4 with four RBIs and a double. Addison Purvis, Hanna Johanning, Kamryn Lohden, Madison Decker, Amanda Boren and Emma Weirich all had two hits.
Purvis had two singles and drove in two runs. Johanning had three RBIs, a triple and a double. Lohden doubled, drove in two and scored twice. Decker picked up a pair of singles and drove in a run. Boren singled twice and scored. Weirich also singled twice while scoring three runs.
Kloey Blanton singled, walked and drove in three. Morgan Bobbitt walked and scored twice.
Addison Purvis went just five innings and struck out 11 of the 15 batters she faced. New Haven didn’t put a runner on base.
Sullivan robbed the game of any suspense just three batters in when Johanning tripled to right to score Reagan Thomure, who was brought in as a courtesy runner for Purvis. Lohden hit an RBI double to score Johanning. Bobbitt reached on an error, then scored on Daniel’s two-run single for a 4-0 lead.
The Lady Eagles added another run in the second on a sacrifice fly by Lohden. In the third, Blanton hit a bases-loaded single that scored three runs.
Daniel and Decker hit RBI singles in the fourth to open up a 10-0 lead. Purvis drove in two with a single to right, then Johanning had an RBI double with two outs for a 14-0 lead. In the fifth, Daniel’s double to right brought in the final run Sullivan would need.
