Saganowich leads SPC's shutout

By Nathan Cowan

Times Correspondent

ST. PETERSBURG — St. Petersburg Catholic's Chloe Saganowich turned in a performance on the mound and at the plate Tuesday that had both teams and fans talking after the Barons' 10-0 rout of Clearwater Central Catholic.

Saganowich went 3-for-3 with two singles, a triple, a run scored and three RBIs. She also pitched a one-hit complete game, struck out 10 and walked two.

"She is still getting better," SPC coach Tommy Fabian said. "She never pitched in games for us so we're still teaching her how to pitch."

The Barons got on the board in the third inning. Shelby Ginty tripled over the rightfielder's head and scored after Brittani Satcher reached on an error to make the score 1-0.

CCC got its only hit in the fourth, but Saganowich struck out two and induced a groundout to end any threat.

The Barons' offense came alive in the fourth as it recorded seven runs, all with two outs.

Saganowich singled to open the inning but the next two batters were retired. She scored on a passed ball and after three straight walks, Satcher singled home two runs to make it 4-0. Bonnie Joyner singled home a run and after another walk to load the bases, Saganowich tripled to clear the bases and give the Barons an 8-0 lead.

"Kids sometimes come out flat, and I wish that didn't happen," Fabian said. "We've lost two games that way but I'm happy we finally came through."

Saganowich shut down the Marauders in the fifth and the Barons scored the last two runs on a Ginty single to end the game by mercy rule. Ginty also had a good day at the plate with a single, triple, a run scored and two RBIs.
