Bratcher throws no-hitter for Drovers

— The USAO softball team won two blowout games on Tuesday against Hillsdale College in Moore.

The Drovers (6-2) beat Hillsdale 14-0 in the first game and 15-0 in the second game.

In the first game, USAO pitcher Morgan Bratcher threw a no-hitter in the five-inning contest.

Hillsdale had two baserunners. Owen walked in the third inning, and Ande Scott reached on a catcher's interference.

Bratcher struck out 11 of the 15 batters she faced.

The Drovers' offense did more than enough behind Bratcher's pitching, scoring its 14 runs on 14 hits.

Shortstop Taylor Smith went 3-for-4 with five RBIs. Infielder Katie Jirak also went 3-for-4 and had one RBI.

First baseman Sara Reeves and right fielder Hannah Neill went 2-for-3 with 2 RBIs.

The Drovers scored 15 runs in the second game, and even though they allowed three hits, they did not give up any runs.

Brooke McLeod pitched the second game and struck out two batters in five innings with no walks.

Smith had another big game for USAO, going 4-for-4 with four RBIs.

Neill went 3-for-4 with 2 RBIs, and Ashley Rasovic, McLeod and Amanda Cave each had two RBIs.

The Drovers will return to action at 2 p.m. Friday in the CBC February Meltdown, with the first game played against No. 14 Williams Baptist and the second game at 6 p.m. against Columbia, a team that has received votes in the NAIA poll.
