Saugatuck 15 Allegan 0
Saugatuck 16 Allegan 1
A doubleheader with Allegan resulted in a pair of decisive wins for the Saugatuck softball team on Wednesday, April 1.
The Indians won the opening 15-0 behind a no-hitter from pitcher Emma Harry before taking game two 16-1 behind a two-hitter from Danielle Demond.
Saugatuck (3-1) didn’t make an error in either game.
“I thought we did a great job hitting, pitching and fielding today,” Saugatuck coach Matt Diaz said. “We were extremely aggressive at the plate and I thought Emma did a great job locating her pitches and was able to keep hitters off balance.
“And when you can play error-free softball, you give yourself opportunities to be successful.”
Harry also led the offensive charge for Saugatuck, collecting three singles, a double and a triple to go with five RBI in the two games. Delia Garza (four hits with three RBI) and Kristen Schock (three hits with four RBI) also had strong days at the plate.
