TUPPERS PLAINS, Ohio — Eastern’s Breanna Hensley gave up just two hits as the Lady Eagles soared past visiting Southern 10-0 in six innings Monday night in a Tri-Valley Conference Hocking Division match up.
After a one-two-three inning for each team in the first inning the Lady Tornadoes (3-2, 2-2 TVC Hocking) broke through with a hit in the top of the second but couldn’t take advantage. The Lady Eagles (5-2, 3-0) broke through in a big way in the bottom half of the inning, with seven runs in the second inning off of five hits and three walks.
After a quiet third inning Eastern added runs in the fourth and fifth to push the lead to 9-0. Following three consecutive walks in the bottom of the sixth EHS junior Tori Goble stole home to put the Lady Eagles’ lead 10-0 and enforce the mercy rule.
