The Crosby Lady Cougars pounded out 19 hits and rode the a strong pitching performance by Kassidy Rhoudes to an 18-0 shutout of the Humble Lady Wildcats on Wednesday afternoon.
Crosby jumped on Humble pitching for two in the first six each in the econd and third inning and closed with a four run fourth.
Crosby's Haleigh Swinney and Amanda McMahan reched to open the game before Black delivered her first rbi hit of the game and just like that it was 2-0.

The hot bats continued in the four run fourth. Kaitlyn Stebelton, McMahan, Black, Bailee Pharis, Rhoudes and Balderrama all collected hits in the inning.
Humble had its best chance in the third loading the bases with two outs before Rhodes retired Deija Ruth to end the inning. Head coach Troy Fox was impressed with his young pitcher's composure.
"It was good to see her pitch out of a tough spot," said Fox.
