Ryan Summerlin May 2, 2013
The Warriors needed one game to warm up, but once their bats started finding the ball they couldn’t be stopped.
The Whittell softball team capped a doubleheader in Incline with a 24-10 win after dropping the first game 3-0 on Saturday in a Mount Rose League matchup.
Incline 3, Whittell 0
Incline’s Sarah Wright and Whittell’s Amanada Harris faced off in Game 1 pitchers’ duel.
Amanda turned in an impressive six-inning performance for Whittell, giving up two hits, one earned run and striking out eight.
Wright pitched a complete game shutout for the Highlanders, scattering four hits, seven walks and striking out two.
Incline busted up the shutout in the third when a few Whittell defensive errors contributed to a three-run inning.
Whittell’s key hits came from Emily Harris, who ripped a double, and Kendall Ferris, who added a triple. But the Warriors were unable to bring any of their runners home.

But Whittell stretched its lead to 8-1 in the top of second, capitalizing on three more walks. Ferris also contributed a two-run double.
