Big hitting performance carries the Lightning Bolts past Green Machine 26-0

CHANDLER, AZ (April 5, 2014) An exceptional effort by Lily lifted the Lightning Bolts to a 26-0 win in five innings over the Green Machine on Saturday at Folley Park.

Lily racked up 12 RBIs on three grand slams for the Lightning Bolts. She homered with bases loaded in the second, third, and fifth innings.

On the mound, Alison kept contact to a minimum, striking out 15 Green Machine batters. The Lightning Bolts' pitcher tossed five innings of shutout ball and allowed only one hit.

Fourteen runs in the first three innings helped the Lightning Bolts blow out the Green Machine. A groundout by Tristin and a two-run home run by Alison during the first inning and a home run by Lily in the second inning helped the Lightning Bolts put some runs on the board early.

The Lightning Bolts hammered Green Machine pitching as 10 hitters had a field day, combining for 17 hits, 24 RBIs and 24 runs scored.

The Green Machine starting pitcher allowed 19 runs in 2 2/3 innings, walked five and struck out four.

The Lightning Bolts scored seven runs in the third inning, and then followed it up with seven more in the fifth. In the third, the Lightning Bolts scored on an RBI single by Krystyna, plating Alison.

The Lightning Bolts added five more runs in the top of the fourth. Jaila's solo home run got things going. That was followed up by Alison's blast, scoring Bella, Kyndra and Jaila, who was pinch-running for Tristin.
