HUMBOLDT — Lenzie Boring never allowed visiting Neodesha High’s Bluestreaks to get in ether game of Tuesday’s doubleheader.
In the opener, Boring threw a no-hit, shutout with only one walk. The Bluestreaks did connect for three hits, draw one walk and scored one run against the senior pitcher in the second game, but Humboldt High’s Lady Cubs still won both.
The Lady Cubs opened the 2009 softball season at home Tuesday with a 10-0 win in five innings and a 9-1 win in seven.
Boring recorded 12 strikeouts in the opener. The Lady Cub defense handled things in the field in both games. Boring rang up 15 strikeouts in the second game.
“I was very pleased how we played as a team in our first two games,” said Brad Piley, Lady Cub head coach. “Lenzie pitched two great games.”
Humboldt scored four runs in the first inning to set the tone in the opener. Piley said Humboldt had seven girls with a hit in the first game.
The Lady Cubs added a run in the second, two in the third and three more in the fourth inning.
