Prep Fastpitch: Pirates Stymie Indians in Battle of Unbeatens


Adna senior ace Hailey Rainey tossed an eight-strikeout one-hitter as undefeated Adna won its fifth-straight in a 15-0 blowout win over previously-unbeaten Toledo at home on Monday.

The high-scoring Indians entered the match unbeaten with a three-game win streak and had outscored their previous two opponents by a combined total of 31-0. But the Indians could find no traction against the defending 2B state champion Pirates, collecting just one hit, coming from Greenlee Clark.

Adna, meanwhile, turned on the pressure offensively, scoring five runs in the first and six in the fourth inning to 10-run Toledo in four. Adna was led by Keaton Dowell and Danika Hallom, who each tallied two hits on the day as the Pirates rocked Toledo’s normally hard-to-hit ace Bethany Bowen for 13 total hits. Karlee Von Moss drove in three runs for Adna while Margarite Humphrey and Kaylee Ashley each notched two RBIs.

Adna (5-0) travels to Stevenson on Thursday, while Toledo (3-1) heads to Rainier on Thursday.
