Alexis Ortiz struck out seven in a no-hitter as Battery Creek slammed Lake Marion 17-0 in three innings to open the Class 3A playoffs Thursday.
Ortiz allowed only one baserunner on a hit by pitch and hit a three-run homer in the Dolphins’ 17-run first inning.
Emily Crosby was 3-for-3 with a triple, a homer, and four RBIs; Isabella Greer drove in three runs and scored twice; McKenzie Young had a triple, two RBIs, and two runs; and Margaret Schubert was 2-for-2 with an RBI and scored twice.
The Dolphins (21-6) will host either Swansea or Georgetown in the winner’s bracket of the double-elimination district tournament Saturday.
