Patriots full of offense to support Kralj’s no-hitterApril 18, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
Kaitlin Kralj made sure the offensive support she received Wednesday was more than enough.
The junior hurler for the Class 3A No. 7 Heritage Hills softball team fired a no-hitter against Tell City, striking out six in five innings in a 13-0 Patriot romp in Lincoln City.
Kralj (9-3) also finished 2-for-3 at the plate, driving in two and scoring a run. Hayli Scott also registered two hits and also notched four RBIs for Heritage Hills (9-3, 2-0 Pocket Athletic Conference).
Madison Gogel and Felicia Leibering each drove in two runs for the Patriots, who finished with nine hits and scored six runs in the third inning to stretch their lead to 10-0.
A season ago, Kralj made the All-Pocket Athletic Conference team while finishing 14-2 with eight complete games, three shutouts and a 0.97 ERA.
