Coming up: The Frenship softball team opens District 4-4A against San Angelo Lake View at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Frenship.

Record: 10-11-1

Looking back: Bekah Piersall pitched a no-hitter as the Tigers beat Hobbs 13-0 Tuesday at Frenship. She had help from the Tiger bats as they scored enough to end the game early with the 10-run rule.

• Meagan Low walked to begin the game. Holly Combs hit a two-run home run. Frenship continued hitting well as it scored six runs the second inning. Ashley Nabors led the second inning off with a single and Hope Baker reached on a walk. Low scored Baker and Nabors with a home run to center field.

• Low finished 2-for-2 with a home run and a walk. Combs led the Tigers at the plate going 3-for-3 with a home run and 2 RBIs.

• With a 13-0 lead after the fourth inning, Kenzie Carnell came in for relief of Piersall. Carnell retired three Lady Eagle batters to end the game.

• Combs, Amanda Bermea and Sam Ortiz made the Spring Break Classic all-tournament team in Arlington last week. Combs committed no passed balls during the tournament as a catcher. She was 4-for-14 at the plate with three RBIs. Bermea was 6-for-16 with six RBIs and Ortiz was 7-for-15 with three RBI. The three helped the Tigers to place second in the gold bracket of the tournament.

Quotables: “We have been swinging the bat really well and we continued to do that tonight,” said Robby Dickenson, Frenship head coach. “As long as we have good hitting mixed with defense we will be alright. Everyone has been taking turns hitting the ball well and tonight it was a team effort. This is about where we want to be at the start of district. (Lake View) will play good solid defense and they will have a few players that can hit the ball real well but we expect them to be about as good as they were last year.”
