Denair was no match for Orestimba pitcher Mariah Valenzuela and the Lady Warriors last Tuesday.
Valenzuela allowed just one hit in a five-inning shutout, and her Orestimba teammates provided plenty of the fireworks at the plate as the Lady Warriors put a 15-0 road victory in the books.
After an uneventful first inning, the West Siders broke the ice with a six-run outburst in the second and never looked back.
Back-to-back doubles by Ashley Taft and Ivory Avila sparked the inning. Mariah Robinson, Victoria Vasquez and Shiloh Croffoot also hit safely in the inning as the Lady Warriors took a commanding lead.
Orestimba padded its lead with two more runs in the third. Robinson delivered a run-scoring double and later scored on an error.
The Lady Warriors pulled away with four more runs in the fourth. Croffoot doubled to start the inning, and Robinson continued her big day at the plate with a two-run double.
Orestimba put the exclamation point on the victory when a three-run homer by Sarah Millan finished the scoring in the bottom of the fifth.
Robinson collected three hits and drove in four runs to lead the Lady Warriors. Millan, Croffoot and Taft each had two hits on the afternoon.
Valenzuela, meanwhile, kept the Coyotes in check. She fanned 10 of the first 11 batters she faced, and wound up with 11 strikeouts in the abbreviated win.
She took a perfect game into the fifth before Denair picked up its first and only hit of the game.
