Turlock High’s varsity softball team has now won back-to-back games, including three of the last four after they shut out Golden Valley, 3-0.

“Shelby (Frutoz) had a dominant game pitching,” said Turlock head coach Jill Ogden.

Frutoz (Long Beach State) was nearly perfect.

She tossed a complete game, seven innings and allowed no runs on two hits, while walking one.

To make things more interesting, Frutoz also retired 11 batters via strikeout and was rewarded with a shutout victory.

Turlock went up 1-0 after the first inning before there were four scoreless innings.

The ‘Dogs notched a pair of runs in the sixth to secure the three-run victory.

Jessie Miranda was 3-for-4 and had a big RBI in the sixth to give Turlock the insurance run, said Ogden.

Frutoz was 2-for-2 from the plate and added an RBI. Faith Erb was 1-for-4 and Faith Hernandez went 1-for-2.

MacKenzie Campbell, who is currently batting .400, went 1-for-4.

The Bulldogs are in first place in the CCC at 2-0 and 6-3 overall.

Turlock will next host Merced at 4 p.m. Thursday.


Pride softball remain undefeated after 11 games

The Pitman Pride varsity softball team has yet to lose after 11 games played so far.

History continues to be made for the Pride after they toppled El Capitan on the road in a not so pretty game, according to head coach Joe Lewis.

They still managed to win, and also scored double digit runs for the eighth time this season.

Pitman’s CCC record currently stands at 1-0-1 after they tied Golden Valley a week ago from Tuesday.

Pitman will next play two straight games this week, making up for postponed games.

They will host Merced and Atwater at 4 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday
