The Perry offense was silenced Thursday night at Gary Creason Field in Boone as Toreador sophomore Emily Ades tossed a no-hitter as Boone shutout Perry 11-0 in the Raccoon River Conference opener for Perry. The Toreadors ended the game via the mercy rule with a walk off 2-run home run by Emma Dighton off reliever Jayna Kenney. Dighton finished the night with 5 RBI’s and has now collected 12 hits in her first 16 at bats this year with five of those hits homeruns. She now has 16 RBI’s on the season to lead the state. Ades worked around danger throughout the night often times fighting her control after walking five batters in the first three innings. Payton Tunick pitched well for Perry in her first start of the season. She ran into trouble in the 5th inning and was relieved by Kenney who allowed a double and walk off homerun in working 1/3 inning of relief. Tunick was charged with 9 runs in 4 1/3 innings. Perry is now 0-3 and will host top ranked ADM in a 6:00 varsity game at the PAC.
Perry’s junior varsity game with Boone last night was cancelled due to lack of numbers for Perry with injuries and suspensions.
