Battery Creek returned to its dominant form with a strong all-around performance in a 6-0 win at May River on Tuesday.
Alexis Ortiz struck out 14 in a one-hitter, walking one and mowing down the Sharks, and Emily Crosby hit a pair of home runs — including a three-run blast to open the scoring in the third. Journeigh Doray was 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles, and Ortiz and McKenzie Young each added a pair of hits for the Dolphins.
Giovana Rodriguez had the only hit for the Sharks. Gabby Ximenez took the loss, allowing five runs (four earned) over 4 2/3 innings with five strikeouts.
The Dolphins (2-7, 1-0) host the Sharks (4-2, 2-1) for the second game of the home-and-home series Friday.
