Pillow Academy (16-4), ranked #5, visited Raider Park to take on Jackson Academy in conference play on Tuesday. Pillow’s senior pitcher held the Lady Raiders to just one hit (Tyler Pitts) and removed JA from the plate seven times via strike out while only putting a Lady Raider on base on balls just once.
JA struggled at the plate and on defense as well, logging 10 errors in the contest. It was a dual effort in the circle once again. Columbia Holeman faced 18 batters and Ashton Berry saw 20. They combined for 3 strike outs and just 2 earned runs on 11 hits. Berry was able to get to the batters early landing 65% first pitch strikes and, overall, throwing 63% strikes. With a lack of offense and inability to keep Pillow from crossing the plate, JA loses 12-0.
