Softball: Seminole blanks St. Petersburg Catholic 7-0

SEMINOLE — St. Petersburg Catholic's matchup with Seminole provided the Barons with a unique opportunity to prove their capability against one of the top public school programs in the county.

Unfortunately for the Barons, the Warhawks were the ones showing off.

Seminole hit SPC pitcher Chloe Saganowich often, to the tune of seven singles and a double over four innings.

The Warhawks got a complete-game pitching performance from Sarah Read, who limited the Barons to just two hits.

And the Seminole defense made a number of solid plays to back Read in the field, all of which led to a 7-0 victory and one of the most complete outings to date for the Warhawks (13-5).

"This was one of our best performances," Read said. "We knew they were a good team, and we came out prepared."

Especially Read.

The senior right-hander gave up a single to Kristy Fudge to open the game, then retired the next 11 Barons in a row before walking Saganowich in the fourth. Fudge, who singled again in the sixth for both SPC hits, was the only Baron with any kind of success.

Read finished with seven strikeouts. The Barons (13-4) never had a runner in scoring position.

Offensively, Seminole was just as effective. Jennie Sittloh's two-out RBI single in the second inning gave the Warhawks the only run they would need.

In the third, Melissa Miles singled to centerfield to score two runs and push the Warhawks lead to 3-0.

Seminole broke the game open in the fourth inning. Emily Crawford's RBI double down the rightfield line made it 4-0, and Jen LaBau roped a two-RBI single to culminate a four-run inning for the Warhawks.

"We knew (Saganowich) was a good pitcher," Read said. "We just had to kind of slow it down and wait for our pitch."

    ST. PETERSBURG — Chaim Bloom said the Rays weren't necessarily in the market for a shortstop. The team has a number of those. But when the Marlins recently began shopping Adeiny Hechavarria, well, that was too much to pass up.

    Adeiny Hechavarria has emerged as one of baseball’s top defensive shortstops in the past three seasons with the Marlins.
