The Callaway Lady Cavaliers traveled to Atlanta for a Region 4-AAA game on Thursday, and they rolled to a 23-0 victory over Douglass.
The game lasted just three innings because of the mercy rule.
Brittany Mitchell pitched all three innings, and she didn’t allow a base runner while striking out eight of the nine batters she faced.
At the plate, Railey Waddell was 4-for-4 with a triple and a double and a pair of RBIs.
Keshonna Terrell had a home run, and she finished with three hits, including a triple and a double.
Kristy Daniel was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs, and Emily Gresham and Kaison Echols each had a hit and an RBI.
On Wednesday, Callaway ended a three-game losing streak with an 8-0 victory over home-standing Hardaway.
Mitchell pitched a six-inning shutout victory, and she gave up just four hits.
Callaway did most of its offensive damage with a six-run second inning.
“The defense played a little better,” Callaway coach Nick Drescher said. “And we put the ball in play, put the pressure on them.”
Waddell was 3-for-4, and she had a two-run single in the second inning.
Waddell also scored three runs.
Terrell was 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs, and Molly Hubbard and Kalea Johnson each walked with the bases loaded to drive in runs.
Callaway is 5-4 overall, and 2-2 in region play.
The Lady Cavaliers will be off until Thursday when they host region foe Jackson.
