Myers’ Pitching Gem Ends Hempfield’s Section Winning Streak

Posted on:

Junior Kiley Myers had one of the best games of her career on Thursday. Myers shut out top-ranked Hempfield, 1-0, to end the Spartans section winning streak at 41 games.

Myers pitched a complete-game, striking out 15 batters, didn’t allow a walk, and only allowed two hits. She was able to get out of a seventh inning jam where Hempfield had runners on the corners with no outs.

Myers didn’t receive any run support until the top of the seventh inning when freshman¬†Jordan Tallman hit a solo home run, her first of her career.

The last time Hempfield lost a section game was on April 15, 2015 against Norwin. During that stretch, they also beat Latrobe nine straight games before Thursday.

Latrobe improves to 9-2 overall and 8-2 in Section 2-6A. Despite the win, they still finish a game behind Hempfield in the section. The Wildcats will return to action on Saturday when they travel to Indiana for a 4 p.m. non-section game.

Hempfield drops to 13-2 overall and 9-1 in the section. The Spartans will travel to Erie on Monday to play McDowell in a non-section game at 4 p.m.
