Division-champion Lions outlast Trojans in showdown 2-1

Bartholomew’s 2-run triple lifts Auburn Mountainview; day later, Rhoades tosses no-no vs. Decatur

Emily Bartholomew’s two-run triple in the sixth inning powered Auburn Mountainview to a 2-1 victory over Auburn in a North Puget Sound League Olympic Division softball showdown Thursday, May 3 on Lea Hill.

Last Friday, Caitlyn Rhoades threw a no-hitter in the Lions’ 7-0 conquest of Decatur in a regular-season finale.

Rhoades struck out 10 and walked none in an economical 82-pitch performance over seven innings. Lily Hope and Megan Perius each tripled and drove in two runs.

The division-champion Lions, with their ninth straight win, improved to 13-1, 16-3 overall.

On deck is the NPSL tournament this Thursday and Friday.

On May 3, Bartholomew’s clutch hit scored Rhoades and Alashae Bell, who both singled.

Kianna Adams homered on a line drive to right field in the top half of the sixth to give Auburn a 1-0 lead.

Rhoades and Adams were spectacular from the circle. Rhoades allowed one run on three hits and struck out eight in seven innings.

Adams allowed four hits and two runs over six innings, striking out 10 and walking one.

Rhoades also went 2-for-3 at the plate, including a double, to lead Auburn Mountainview.

The Trojans dropped to 9-5, 13-5.
