A pitcher who did not feel good pitched lights out. A power hitter who set the table rather than drive in runs. And a cleanup hitter that delivered what her role requires. Perry used those contributions Friday to put a stranglehold on the lead in the 5A East Valley Region softball race by defeating Skyline, 6-0, at Skyline High School.
Last season Red Mountain softball won the 2010 5A-I state title with extraordinary pitching and very good hitting. The Mountain Lions are certainly in the mix -- if not the lead -- to repeat as state champs in 2011. The reason? Extraordinary hitting and very good pitching.
