Saltillo Lady Lions Offense Explodes Against Fruitvale

The Saltillo Lady Lions got back in to the win column, Tuesday, Apr. 13 after crushing Fruitvale by a score of 22-0.

Fruitvale was no match for Saltillo this evening, as the Lady Cats could not get any offense going versus the Lady Lions. Fruitvale did not score a single run in 3.5 innings.

The Lady Lions, however, did not have that issue Tuesday, Apr. 13 as they burst open the gates of the game by putting eight runs on the board in their first at-bat. It only got worse for the visiting Lady Cats from there.

Fruitvale pitching allowed Saltillo to best their first inning output; instead of allowing eight runs like they did in the bottom of the first, in the second, the Lady Lions put 10 more runs on the board to take a staggering 18-0 lead going in to the third inning.

The Lady Cats could not manage a run in the third inning. So when they returned to defense, Fruitvale, again, had no answers for Saltillo’s offense. The Lady Lions added on four more runs and the game was called after 3.5 innings as Saltillo crushed district foe Fruitvale, 22-0 in Saltillo.
