Four RBI day for Attiana Thompson brings victory for Liberty over West Valley
HEMET – Liberty’s Attiana Thompson helped lead her Bison past Hemet’s West Valley 17-3 on Friday, April 21. With four runs batted in off two doubles, Thompson ensured Liberty would stay undefeated in league play. Currently, with an 8-0 record, the Bison have two games left in the regular season to accomplish something not many first-year programs can, a perfect league season.
Up until their game against West Valley, Liberty had held every league opponent scoreless, and even then, they mercy ruled their Hemet neighbors with an offensive surge that could not be contained. The Bison ladies fired things up in the first inning when they scored two runs on a Kaylee Fraund double and an Andi Clabough RBI single.
A four-run second inning, three-run third inning, two-run fourth and six-run sixth inning would put Liberty back on the bus, headed home early in the afternoon. Yasmine Lopez, Miah Watson, Lissette Quiñones, Sam Roman and Brianna Longaker powered the big six-run inning with RBIs.
Clabough was the winning pitcher for Liberty with her three innings toeing the rubber. She allowed one run on four hits, striking out four and walking zero. Longaker and Aubrie Gosy entered the game out of the bullpen and helped to close out the game in relief. The Bison scattered ten hits in the game with Thompson, Fraund and Alex Guerrero all managing multiple hits with two each.
West Valley had eight hits in the game with Liliana Mahan and Trinity Castleberry collecting two hits each on the day, including an RBI from Castleberry.
