Greenbrier’s Kirsten Titus wasn’t perfect Wednesday night but she was close.
After pitching a perfect four-inning game against Grovetown Tuesday night, Titus followed it up by allowing the Cross Creek Lady Razorbacks just one hit in four innings of work Wednesday night as the Lady Wolfpack went on to a 8-0, five-inning win.
The win was the third in as many days for the Lady Wolfpack (9-2) who are making up for rainouts earlier in the season, playing 12 games in eight days with just an off day on Sunday. They ran their winning streak to eight games in the process.
“I’m most pleased with our pitching and defense right now which is our bread and butter,” said Lady Wolfpack head coach Garrett Black.
The shutout was the sixth of the year for the Lady Wolfpack who have also allowed just one run twice.
Kirsten McMonigle and Maddie Hunt led off the bottom of the first with singles off Lady Razorback pitcher Katlin Yarid (6-4). McMonigle would score on an error and Hunt came home on a Titus RBI groundout and that would be more than enough for the Lady Wolfpack.
McMonigle, Taylor DuPree, Lee Anne Rees and Monica Mullis would pace the Lady Wolfpack with two hits apiece.
The Lady Razorbacks (8-7) committed four errors behind Yarid and could manage just Yarid’s single to right leading off the third inning.
“We only had one hit tonight and when you don’t hit that puts pressure on your defense and you can’t make mistakes,” said Lady Razorbacks coach Lisa White. “We don’t have the overpowering pitching, so we need to make the routine ordinary plays and we didn’t make those today.”
Titus (7-1) finished the game with had five strikeouts.
