The hits just keep on coming for Lynnwood.
After scoring 35 runs in their last two games, the Royals continued to have the hot bats as they scored nine runs on 12 hits in a 9-0 victory over Edmonds-Woodway in a Wesco 4A South softball game Monday at Edmonds-Woodway High School.
Contributions came from all over the Lynnwood lineup.
“We had seven different girls get hits,” Lynnwood coach Matt Rockne said.
Freshman Maddie Morgan was 2-for-4 with a triple, home run and 2RBI and Megan Crabtree hit a home run and drove in two runs. Dasia Lester was 3-for-4 with a single, double and triple and Erica Gott was 2-for-4 with a double and triple.
Jessica Gott struck out 12, issued no walks and allowed only four hits in seven innings of work. She was 2-for-4 from the plate.
“She was ahead of all the hitters,” Rockne said. “She didn’t throw a lot of pitches.”
Lynnwood scored two runs in the second and added a run in the third and fourth innings. The Royals then put the game out of reach with five runs in the top of the seventh.
“We had real solid pitching and defense,” Rockne said. “Edmonds-Woodway tried to do a lot with their baserunners with bunting. We made every play.”
Edmonds-Woodway’s Taylor Jones had three of her team’s four hits (all singles).
Lynnwood (1-0 in the league, 4-1 overall) hosts Cascade at 4 p.m., Tuesday, April 1 and hosts Marysville-Pilchuck at 4 p.m., Friday, April 4.
