Crater pitching duo stifles West Albany

CENTRAL POINT ' Crater pitchers Janelle Cristofaro and Ashleigh Cuddie left West Albany scratching its head following a nonconference doubleheader on Friday.

The duo teamed up to hold the Bulldogs to three hits and no runs during the Comets twin bill sweep.

Cristofaro limited West Albany to one hit during a 2-0 victory in the opener and Cuddie followed up with a two-hit gem in Crater's 3-0 triumph in Game 2.

While Cristofaro and Cuddie did their part on the mound, Tyler Sutherland did most of the damage at the plate with four hits and three RBIs over both games.

She's accounted for a ton of our runs this season, said Comet coach Chris Arnold of his senior shortstop. She's off to a great start.

— Sutherland drove in Cristofaro on a squeeze bunt in the third inning of Game 1. Kristen Haga capped Crater's scoring with an RBI single in the fourth.

Cristofaro struck out five in the first game and didn't allow a runner past second base.

Haley Hevern and Susan Winningham added to the 11-hit attack with two apiece.

In the nightcap, Cuddie fanned eight and was never seriously threatened.

Cristofaro went 2-for-3 with two runs and Sutherland added two hits and two RBIs. Kristin Davidson and Winningham also had two hits apiece.

Crater (6-1) combined for 19 hits but managed to score just five runs.

We missed some scoring opportunities and made some base-running mistakes, said Arnold. That cost us a few runs, but those are things we can work on.
