WALLA WALLA — DeSales High School collected 23 hits and held Asotin to two as the Irish handed Southeast 2B rival Asotin its first league losses of the season, 10-0 and 13-1, here Saturday.
Asotin drops to 4-2 in league and the Irish remain perfect at 6-0.
DeSales rode the one-hit, seven-strike out, shut-out performance of Ashlyn Lyons in the circle to the first-game win.
DeSales put this one away with a seven-run second. Teresa Acock, Molli Lesko, Lyons, and Brittney Postlewait led the 10-hit Irish attack with two hits each.
The Panthers scored in the first inning of game two, but Ashlyn Lyons and Kaylee Brown combined to check the Panther attack the rest of the way.
The Irish pounded out 13 hits and scored in each of the first four innings. Ashlyn Lyons led the hit parade with three. Lesko, Brown, Allesyn Lyons, and Ali Zander each chipped in two.
“We’ve been on a streak of hitting the ball well,” Irish coach Russ Vera said. “We had no errors in either game and we’ve been looking for that (defensive play). Our bats are coming alive and we are peaking when we need to be.”
The Irish host Touchet in a non-league affair Tuesday.
