Mitchell Pitches Patriots To Opening Win

Emma Mitchell struck out ten and came within two strikes of a perfect game as the Patrick Henry softball team began the 2012 season with a 6-0 shutout on the road against Maggie Walker Governors School Tuesday afternoon.

The game was scoreless until the Patriots broke open for two runs in the sixth and four in the seventh. Madison Gilman had two hits, including a double, and Sam Moore belted a two-run triple in the seventh inning offensive outburst.

An infield single and a runner reaching by error were the only two blemishes on Mitchell's 89-pitch performance, both of which came with two outs in the seventh inning. Both runners were stranded as the Patriots go to 1-0 in the Colonial and overall.

They go out-of-district tomorrow at 6pm at Glen Allen.
