The Cherokees jumped on Beeville starter Theresa Amador for five first inning runs to get off to a great start. Amador and the Beeville defense then played some good ball over the next four frames, allowing just two more T-M runs in the top of the fourth for a 7-0 Cherokee advantage.
Amador shut down the hard-hitting visitors in the fifth, but the big T-M bats got back into rhythm in the sixth for another five runs to make it 11-0 heading into the bottom of the sixth.
The Lady Trojans had to score, but the Cherokee pitching shut down the Beeville offense, and the T-M girls captured a 10-run rule in six innings. The Cherokees produced 14 hits with 10 RBIs.
The Beeville girls were no-hit in their previous encounter with the Cherokees but managed to collect eight hits in Friday’s contest.
“We just couldn’t string enough of them together,” said head coach Jose Flores.
Amador was a perfect 3-3 at the plate for the Lady Trojans. Rebekah Mendoza had two hits in three trips. Eddika Ortega, Lynn Puente and Krystal Cuellar also picked up base hits for the Beeville girls.
Amador went the distance in the circle for the Lady Trojans, allowing just four earned runs off 14 hits, recording two strikeouts and issuing four walks on the night.
The Lady Trojans finished District 30-4A play at 1-11.
