Bridgewater sweeps McDaniel behind game-one no-hitter

BRIDGEWATER, Va. – Ashley Gills pitched a no-hitter, striking out 10 in Bridewater’s 7-0 game-one victory over McDaniel in non-conference softball action on Saturday.

            The Eagles (2-0) broke out the bats early in game two, exploding for 11 runs before cruising to a 17-0 win in five innings.
            The Green Terror (1-2) was limited to just three hits in the nightcap.
            Hillary Rees doubled to lead off the home first in the opener before stealing third and scoring on an Emily Morris RBI single for a 1-0 lead.
            That one run would prove to be all Gills needed but the Bridgewater offense tacked on six runs in the fifth. Morris keyed the frame with a three-run home run.
            Eight of the first nine batters all recorded hits in the first inning of game two, including a Morris two-run double and Kristen Combs double with the bases loaded that cleared the bags and chased starting pitcher Kelly Toms (Hagerstown, Md./North Hagerstown).
            A Kaitlyn Bowman two-run bomb capped the 11-run frame.
            The Eagles tacked on three runs in each the third and fourth innings.
            Morris had a two-run home run in the third as part of her six-hit, 12-RBI doubleheader.
            The Green Terror returns to action at Mary Baldwin on Sunday. The first game of the doubleheader begins at 1 p.m.
