DODGE CITY — The Hays High School softball team made easy work of Dodge City, winning 17-0 (five innings) and 16-0 (three innings) on Thursday in its first road games of the season.
The Indians held the Red Demons to only two combined hits in the doubleheader. Junior Hannah Hearld pitched all five innings for Hays High in Game 1, allowing just one hit and striking out 10 batters.
Hearld also finished with three hits, three runs and three RBI in the first game. The game was scoreless until the top of the third inning, when the Indians scored eight runs. They followed with five runs in the fourth and four in the fifth.
After scoring two runs in the first inning of Game 2, the Indians brought in nine more in the second and put the game away with five more in the third inning.
Hearld pitched two of the three innings for Hays High in Game 2, giving up one hit and striking out one batter. Madison Prough pitched the other inning, striking out one while not giving up a hit.
Through the first four games this season, Hearld has given up only four hits, walked three batters and struck out 37. The Indians have yet to give up a run with Hearld on the mound.
Hays High, now 4-0 and 2-0 in the WAC, is off until Thursday when it travels to Salina South.
