Curtis tosses one-hitter in 'Dogs 4-0 shutout over Golden Valley
Turlock's Landon Curtis was simply dominant against the Golden Valley Cougars.
Curtis pitched a one-hitter, allowing just a single, walking three and striking out four, in the Bulldogs 4-0 victory on the road Thursday.
The win also keeps the Bulldogs undefeated and atop the standings in the Central California Conference at 5-0.
Chris Steeley and Tate Soderstrom each added an RBI for the game.
Eli Williams was 1 for 2. Mitch Pryschuk was 2 for 3 and Blaine Weber was 1 for 4 in a game where a total of seven errors were committed by both teams combined.
Turlock's final game of the series will be at home against Golden Valley at 4 p.m. Friday.
Another fall for the Turlock softball in Atwater matchup
After losing to Atwater in the team’s first meeting of the year, Turlock softball head coach Jill Ogden expected the second game would turn out in their favor, but it didn't.
Starting pitcher Cheyenne Mahy of Atwater was nearly unhittable after she tossed seven innings and allowed no runs on a three hit day, striking out 11 in the process.
Atwater, which strung together seven hits for the game, scored three runs in the first two innings.
From that point on Mahy was able to fend off the Bulldogs and hold them to their second shutout of the year.
Turlock falls to 2-5 in the Central California Conference and will host Golden Valley at 4 p.m. Friday.
Bears slam Pride in a 9-1 romping
Pitman softball lost to Merced for the second time this season after a 9-1 decision at home on Wednesday.
The errors piled on for the Pride who committed five of them and only managed five hits for the game.
Merced's six runs after two innings made it difficult for Pitman to bounce back after—again—Merced's Madilyn Nickles was nearly untouchable.
Nickles struck out 12, allowed five hits and just one run after seven innings.
Pitman will travel to Atwater to take on the Falcons at 4 p.m. Friday.
