Enumclaw fastpitch scores in pitchers’ duel with Franklin Pierce

Enumclaw High’s fastpitch crew registered an impressive victory at Franklin Pierce April 5, winning 4-2 in a pitchers duel between two of the South Puget Sound League 3A’s finest windmillers in Franklin Pierce’s Kelli Crawford (7-3) and Enumclaw’s Austin Rogers (6-2).

In that encounter, each ace recorded eight strikeouts and went the full seven innings. The Cards hopped out to a 2-0 advantage early, but Enumclaw knotted the score in the top of the fifth.

Enumclaw broke the tie in the top of the eighth when Rogers helped her own cause with a two-run double.

Enumclaw is scheduled to play at least three consecutive games this week.

The busy week got under way Tuesday when the Hornets hosted Bonney Lake. EHS travels to Sumner today, Wednesday, and hosts Lakes High Thursday.
