Lady ’Hounds rout Lady Cardinals 11-1

HARLINGEN — The Lady Greyhounds are on a roll this season largely due to their well-rounded squad, and it showed in their latest outing.

Fueled by a pair of three-run homers by Erica Cortez and Sarah Garcia, the Lady ‘Hounds cruised to a 11-1, five-inning win over the Harlingen Lady Cardinals Friday night at Lady Cards Field.

The bats weren’t hot for everyone, as San Benito (16-0, 3-0) recorded just five fits, but alert base running and plays on defense helped make it an early night.

“Everybody is playing their role as well as understanding their role,” said first-year San Benito head coach Kristy Leal. “We’re playing team softball really. It’s selfless, solid softball. The team is producing at the plate and defensively we’re playing really well.

“These kids are hungry and they play every team like they’re playing the best team in Texas. We want to keep enforcing that and getting those Ws.”
