Lady Rangers have no trouble with Hampton

By Allen LaMountain

A 10-run second-inning outburst propelled the Unaka Lady Rangers past Hampton by a 15-0 tally on Tuesday evening at Ronnie Hicks Field, in a game shortened by the 10-run mercy rule.

The win gives Unaka a season sweep of the Lady Bulldogs as the Rangers took a 14-5 win at Hampton earlier in the season.

Sarah Hardin got the call in the circle for the Rangers and she went the distance, giving up just two hits while walking six and striking out five.

“Once she gets more experience it will be more like clockwork for her,” said Lady Rangers coach Kayla Clawson of her young hurler.
