Madison Harris, Jamie Hansen and Merinna Scott all had two-run inside-the-park homers in the same inning to help power Pahranagat Valley to a 16-1 win over visiting Calvary Chapel in girls softball on Tuesday.
Coach Mike Sparrow said in his long coaching career he couldn’t remember seeing such a feat, and the girls themselves thought it was “cool,” but Hansen said she didn’t really think about it.
The milestone happened in a 7-run third inning of the non-league game. Kennedy Huntsman threw a one-hitter in the win.
Last week in league action, Huntsman spun another one-hitter with six strikeouts in the opener and a two-hitter with five strikeouts in the nightcap as the Panthers swept a pair of five-inning games from the Sandy Valley Sidewinders by scores of 13-0 and 14-1. The games were shortened to five innings due to the 10-run rule.
Traci Strong was 2-for-2 with a double, and Brook Higbee went 2-for-2 in the first game for Pahranagat Valley.
In the finale, Bailee Hosier and Jade Jewett each went 1-for-1, and the Panthers took advantage of nine walks and three hit batters.
Hunter Gonzales was 2-for-3 in the nightcap for Sandy Valley (3-4, 0-4).
Pahranagat opened that game with an eight run first inning.
The Sidewinders avoided a double shutout by scoring one run in their last at bat in the second game.
Alamo (11-3, 2-0) travels to play at co-league leader Indian Springs (6-3, 2-0) today. There next home game is April 29 with Lake Mead.
