The St. James softball team (6-3, 2-1 FRC) made the trip down to Sullivan for their third straight Four Rivers Conference matchup on Tuesday, Sept. 5. The Lady Tigers struggled in the pitching circle and in the batter's box, as they were no-hit in a 17-0 loss.
Kayla Hamilton got the start for St. James and was hurt by a combination of walks and errors. She allowed 11 runs in 3 2/3 innings, but only three of those runs were earned. She walked five batters and allowed six hits. St. James also had five errors in the contest. Audrey Marcee came in to pitch an inning of relief. She allowed six runs, one of which was earned, on three hits.
Addison Purvis toed the rubber for Sullivan and provided the Lady Eagles with a dominant performance. She pitched four innings in the mercy rule shortened affair and didn't allow a single base hit. Sullivan committed one error to break up the perfect game, but she was stellar nonetheless. She struck out 10 in the win over St. James.
The Lady Tigers had their JV back in action with a doubleheader against St. Clair on Wednesday, Sept. 6, but the varsity had the night off. St. James will return home for their next varsity game when they host Union on Thursday, Sept. 7.
