While there are many strategies and tactics that can be employed in the game of softball, sometimes it can be a very simple game. Trot out a dominant pitcher and win the game. That is exactly what Sahuaro did in a 10-0 win over Mountain View on Wednesday afternoon.

Andie Larkin was that pitcher on Wednesday. The Cougar junior one-hit the Mountain Lions and allowed just three base runners on the day. Larkin was on her game and the Lions really didn’t have a chance.

The Cougar bats were also sound and five Mountain View errors went a long way into dooming the visitors.

Two runs in each of the first two innings put the Cougars up 4-0 and they led 5-0 when they added two more in the bottom of the fourth.

The game ended in the fifth when three Sahuaro runs invoked the 10-run rule.

The win pushed Sahuaro to 20-3-1 on the season and it was their eighth home win. Mountain View dropped to 8-11 overall.

24 hours earlier the Mountain Lions went on the road to the Phoenix area and came away with a win. They downed Maricopa 8-4, snapping a three-game losing streak. Mountain View is now 4-8 in regular season games that count towards the postseason.

Their busy week continues with a Thursday home game against Palo Verde.
