Freshman Lisa Liddell tossed a no-hitter and Onalaska batters provided the fireworks as the Loggers chopped past visiting Kalama for a 17-0 win in three innings during a Central 2B League game on Tuesday.
The Loggers (10-2) remain unbeaten in league (8-0), have won nine straight games and are tied atop the C2BL standings with Adna (7-2, 5-0 C2BL).
Liddell kept the Chinooks off-balance all day, striking out five batters while allowing no hits, no walks and no runs across three innings. She was one dropped third-strike away — which resulted in Kalama’s only baserunner — from a perfect game.
While Liddell went to work in the circle, Alex Cleveland-Barrera was tearing it up at the plate, driving in five runs with two doubles and a single. Desi Smith was 2 for 3 with three RBIs and a walk.
“The girls played well and kept the energy up, even with the bad weather,” Onalaska coach Rich Teitzel said.
Onalaska continues league play when it heads to Stevenson on Thursday.
