Lady Rams blank Salem

Meyer, Wright combine for shutout


Bria Meyer and Hannah Wright hurled a combined shutout in the Lady Rams 6-0 victory over Salem on Friday.

The pitching first of all was outstanding,” Mt. Vernon coach Lance Boldt said. “With the Bria-Hannah combination, they did a great job throwing strikes, giving our defense a chance and really Bria did a great job changing speeds.

(Hannah's) velocity's up back to where it was early in the year.”

Meyer pitched into the fourth inning for the Lady Rams, holding the Lady Wildcats scoreless. Salem mounted a rally against Meyer and had runners perched at second and third base when Boldt brought in Hannah Wright. The junior pitcher shut down the Salem attack with back-to-back strikeouts.

I just thought that would be a good time to make that change,” Boldt said. “She came in, threw strikes, threw hard and threw it by them.”

The strikeouts preserved Mt. Vernon's slender 1-0 edge that Hannah Wright created with a booming solo home run to left field in the third inning.

Not many times have I said that's a no-brainer (home run),” Boldt said. “That's gone. That's out of here right off the bat and hers was out of here right off the bat. She just hit a rocket.”

Mt. Vernon never had an explosive inning against Salem's starter Mallory Daniels. The Lady Rams did score consistently though. Mt. Vernon tallied runs in four of its six times at the plate.

Mt. Vernon surged to a 3-0 edge in the fourth. Rachel Kirsch knocked an RBI single. Colleen Skobel drove in another run with a groundout.

Mt. Vernon increased its advantage in the fifth when Hannah Carbonaro deposited an RBI single. The final Lady Rams runs came in the sixth. Both Bailee Huff and Rachel Wright both had an RBI hit each.
