Todd continues pitching dominance with fourth no hitter
Hannah Todd’s fourth no-hitter of the season and her second in three games led Cartersville past visiting Darlington Wednesday evening in the Lady Canes’ final regular season game.
The University of North Carolina commit, tossed a six inning no-no as the Lady Canes added their 15th win of the year -- 8-0 over the visiting Lady Tigers. Todd walked four and struck out nine.
The performance comes on the heels of a doubleheader sweep at LaGrange last Saturday as Todd worked all 14 innings of a 7-0 no hitter and a 3-0 one hitter. She struck out 22 in that two-game performance.
Cartersville struck for six runs in their first two offensive innings Wednesday, but the visiting Tigers contributed with miscues. Only two of the Lady Canes’ runs in the game were earned. Darlington committed six errors while Cartersville collected eight hits.
Todd had two of Cartersville’s hits including a triple and two RBIs. Lauren McElhaney also had two hits for the Lady Canes. Presley Edwards (2 RBIs), Paris Poston, Madison McKinney, and Kayla Stephenson had the other Cartersville base hits.
Cartersville (15-10) is seeded fourth and opens the Region 5-AAAA playoffs by hosting an opening round doubleheader Saturday at 2pm against LaGrange. If a third game in the best-of-three series is needed, it will be played Monday.
