Gosselin throws no-hitter in Bay Path debut
SOFTBALL: Bay Path 17, Parker Charter 0
Bay Path freshman pitcher Sarah Gosselin was near perfect in her first high school start, throwing a no-hitter on Thursday afternoon.
Gosselin struck out 13 and issued two walks over five innings as the Minutemen secured their second victory in as many days. The game was called after five innings due to the mercy rule.
“Sarah threw a lot of strikes and was able to battle back when she fell behind in the count,” said Bay Path coach Rick Carrero. “What was most impressive was that she was able to take it one out at a time.”
The coach also credited his rookie’s performance as the byproduct of a productive relationship with Katy Ryan, a junior pitcher who struck out 11 over six innings in Bay Path’s season opener on Wednesday.
Gosselin received plenty of run support, including a grand slam by freshman shortstop Kyleigh Sutherland and a three-run homer off the bat of junior thirdbaseman Patricia King. Sutherland drove in five runs in the game, walked twice and stole a base, while King picked up a pair of hits and four RBI. Bay Path collected 17 hits in the game.
Grace Martin took most of the lumps for the Parker Charter Panthers, working the first four innings of the game. Mia Lapardo worked the fifth and final frame.
