"Our nine hitter has two home runs this year so we've got a very good, aggressive hitting team," Caldwell said. "All through the lineup we have power. It starts with [Casto] getting on and all the way through the lineup we have the ability to hit them out or double."
While Hurricane flashed its bats all game long, there was Rogers putting up zero after zero. She finished with seven strikeouts and no walks while giving up just three harmless singles.
"I just hit the corners and hit my spots," Rogers said.
Nicole Pierson, Rogers, and Addie Fullen joined Sargent in the two-hit club with Fullen adding a double and a pair of RBIs. Amber Null also had a double.
Madi Marshall, Alyssa Bonham, and Briana Pauley each had a single for St. Albans.
Despite the end result, St. Albans did accomplish something that few teams do.
With the score 9-0 in the bottom of the fourth, Hurricane had the bases loaded needing just one more run to end the game then and there.
Emily Davis laced a line drive to left field that seemed for all the world to be over St. Albans leftfielder Whitney Jones' head.
The Redskins runners took off, but Jones made a nice catch and quickly and got it back into the infield, where runners were forced out at third and second base resulting in the old 7-6-5-4 triple play and an extra opportunity at the plate for the Red Dragons.
