Rio Hondo blanks La Feria 10-0 to stay perfect in 32-4A

RIO HONDO — Rio Hondo continued its winnings ways on Tuesday evening.

The Lady Bobcats looked every bit of a sixth-ranked team as they defeated District 32-4A rival La Feria 10-0 in five innings.

The victory improved Rio Hondo’s record to 16-2 overall and 4-0 in district competition, while La Feria dropped to 8-4 overall and 2-3 in league play.

Ace pitcher Miranda Martinez garnered much of the praise on the evening as the junior pitched a no-hitter and almost had a perfect game.

“She needed this game because not only are they (La Feria) a tough opponent in our district, but at the same time she’s had times of struggling this year and we’re going to need all of our pitchers come playoffs,” said Rio Hondo head coach Brett Esparza.

“Not to take away anything from Jenni (Flores), who’s been pitching lights out, but for Miranda to come out and own again, I’m very proud of her and hopefully she’s back into her grove, and we have that one-two combination where she would be really tough to beat.”
