Moyer strikes out 17, Blair Oaks blanks Boonville 5-0

The Boonville Lady Pirates softball team did everything they could to slow down the Blair Oaks Falcons Thursday night in Wardsville. Although the Lady Pirates fell short against the Falcons 5-0 in seven innings, Boonville head coach Christie Zoeller said the girls played a much better game defensively and Abby (Pulliam) did a really nice job in the circle. “Abby had great spin on her ball and stayed tough against a good hitting team,” Zoeller said. “The majority of Blair Oaks’ hits were little bloops that just dropped in. Where we have to improve is at the plate. We saw a great pitcher tonight and when we were able to get the bat on the ball, we just hit it right at people. We will improve on protecting the plate with two strikes and swinging at good pitches. Again, even though this is a loss, we played solid defense behind great pitching. We have to build off of that moving forward.”

White Sox's Lance Lynn: Suffers hard-luck loss

Lynn (10-5) was tagged with the loss Saturday against Texas, pitching 5.1 innings and allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out five. The right-hander was very effective in the outing, holding the Rangers without an extra-base hit over 5.1 frames. A fourth-inning infield error contributed to the first run against him, and the second was tallied after he had exited the contest in the sixth. Lynn has completed at least six innings only once over his past six starts, but he has nonetheless held opponents to one or zero earned runs in four of those outings. He'll carry an excellent 2.47 ERA into a road start against Cleveland next week.
