Varsity (April 27): Collins' 1-hitter helps Hereford upset Eastern

From Sun staff reports

Erin Collins pitched a one-hit shutout as No. 9 Hereford upset No. 1 Eastern Tech, 3-0, in softball Thursday.

Hereford coach Laura Blama said the Bulls (9-2, 9-1 Baltimore County) haven't beaten the Mavericks (10-1, 8-1) in at least seven years.

"Erin [Collins] was hitting all her spots and our defense executed every play," Blama said. "And no balls left the infield, which is very uncharacteristic for that team."

Collins went seven innings, gave up one hit, walked two and struck out seven. Offensively, Collins went 2-for-2 with a single and a double. McKenzy Hall hit a two-run homer in the third inning and Michaela Watts added her home run in the fifth inning.

C. Milton Wright 2, No. 3 Bel Air 0: Katie Murphy got the win and scored the go-ahead run as the host Mustangs (9-6) upset the Bobcats (10-5).

C.M. Wright scored twice on defensive errors in the seventh inning. Murphy scored on a wild pitch and Lexi Childress scored on an error.

Lansdowne 6, Catonsville 5: Bri Eiser went 3-for-3 with three RBIs to lead the Vikings (8-2) past the host Comets (5-5).

Elser capped off a four-run rally with a two-out two-run single in the top of the sixth when Lansdowne rallied from a 5-2 deficit.

Towson 3, Eastern Tech 2, 8 innings: Jack Saunders hit an RBI single to score Diego Menegatti to lift the host Generals (7-5) over the Mavericks (8-4).

Jack Bayne walked and pinch-runner Menegatti stole second.

Arundel 10, Old Mill 0: Winning pitcher Will Schubert pitched a complete-game shutout and Andrew Santarpia and Garrett Stanard each homered to help the Wildcats (12-4) beat the host Patriots (11-5).
