Lady ‘Stangs avoid no-hit but lose 12-0

The Sweetwater softball team can be thankful that it probably won’t ever have to face Snyder’s Adrianna Hernandez again.The Lady Tigers’ talented senior on Friday shut out the Lady Mustangs for the third straight time, and got plenty of offensive support as her team rolled to a 12-0, five-inning win.Snyder improved to 6-0 in district with the win, while Sweetwater fell to 0-6. But the Lady Mustangs (9-12 overall) were at least able to avoid being no-hit by Hernandez a second time when Cierra Knox hit a two-out single past third base in the fourth inning.Sweetwater’s only other players to reach base were Naomi Gonzales, who drew a one-out walk against Her-nandez in the second, and Shaneese Brown, who ran for Gonzales but was then erased by an inning-ending double play.Snyder led just 1-0 until pushing across 11 runs over a three-inning span to end the game by the mercy rule. The Lady Mustangs helped by making seven errors.Sweetwater, which has four games left, will host Greenwood on Tuesday in its next-to-last home game.
