NAPA’s women’s softball team got off to a slow start failing to score in the first two innings against Union City.
That sure changed in the third when the Parts Ladies plated 16 runs and coasted to a 20-1 victory.
Twenty batters went to the plate in the third where there were 14 hits, two walks and an error.
The 15 plus 1 rule came into effect in the third. But Carrie Hall took exception to the rule by blasting a three-run homer over the right center field fence in the fourth.
Lindsey Smith led off the fifth with a solo shot over the left field fence.
Union City was shut down 1-2-3 in the fourth and fifth innings to end the game via the mercy rule.
Janel Pike had four singles and two RBI, Hall with three hits and three runs batted in.
Smith finished with three hits, Kayla Hansen with two and four RBI.
Also with two hits were Shaina Hansen, Erika Mack, Jackie Joy and Karalee Kemp. Joy drove in three runs.
Mack was the winning pitcher allowing four hits and no walks.
Next up NAPA will host Union City on Monday.
