Vassberg fires three-hitter in Bearcats' 14-1 victory over Saginaw

April 21, 2010 by Tony Eierdam

Brann strikes out nine in Ladycats' 13-0 win over Lady Riders

Aledo senior pitcher Austin Vassberg limited Saginaw to just three hits while striking out three with one walk to lead the Bearcats to a 14-1 win over Saginaw Wednesday night in a District 6-4A contest at Saginaw.

The win raises the Bearcats' district record to 9-3. AHS will play next at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 23, at Mineral Wells.

Before Vassberg ever touched the mound the Bearcats gave the lefty a double-digit lead as Aledo scored 11 runs in the top of the first inning.

The Bearcats sent up 15 batters in the opening frame and swatted six hits and patiently worked four walks. All nine players in the batting order scored in the inning, with Lawton Rinker and Rylan Riney scoring twice.

Nils Smith recorded a single and a double in the frame, with Riney, Rinker, Zack Scott, Sean O'Donnell and Andrew Tort each collecting a base hit.

Aledo added two runs in the second and a run in the fourth to close the scoring.

Ladycats 13, Saginaw 0

Aledo sophomore pitcher Kacie Brann threw a two-hit shutout with nine strikeouts and four walks to lead the Ladycats to a 13-0 win over Saginaw in District 6-4A action Wednesday night at Saginaw.

The win raises the Ladycats 6-4A mark to 11-2. Aledo can clinch at least a tie for the district championship with a win Friday (April 23) at Mineral Wells. The first pitch will be at 7 p.m.

The Ladycats scored 11 runs in the top of the third inning to take an 11-0 lead. Aledo sent up 16 batters in the frame. Morgan Farley, Carolyn Clayton, Kendall Kizer and Shelby Stockard each scored a pair of runs in the inning, with Rebecca Phillips, Sarah Simpson and Jordan Simons each crossing the plate.

The big hit in the third inning was a three-RBI triple by Stockard.

Clayton went three-for-four at the plate, including a double, to lead Aledo. Farley, Kizer, Lauren Durham, and Simons each registered a pair of hits.
