Ladies beat Ben Bolt in district road trip
The win brings their district record to 3-0.
Savannah Ortiz again pitched for the Lady Marlins, allowing six hits while striking out 11 and walking two. She picks up the win for the Port Aransas girls.
In the field, the ladies made only two errors and allowed only one unearned run.
“We did make quite a few good plays in the field,” coach Steve Reaves added. He cited Kellie Owens’ throw catching a Ben Bolt runner at third base, stopping a Badger rally.
Offensively, Ortiz took the lead, going two for two, including a three-run home run in the fifth inning. Aside from using her bat, she also capped the Port Aransas scoring by stealing home in the seventh frame.
Jordan Morris was two for five, Owens collected one run in three trips to the plate and Brenna Martin got a hit in four at-bats; she drove in two runs on a double in the fourth inning.
“It was a very solid game for us,” Reaves said.
