Freshman pitcher Alexis Erich twirled a one-hitter, and Jordan Vinson swatted three doubles in East Union’s 11-0 mercy-shortened win at Lathrop on Wednesday.

Vinson finished 3 for 4 and drove in four RBIs, hitting two two-out doubles in the process.

“We had a lot of two-out clutch hits today,” East Union coach Brian Goulart said.

Cherish Burks and Samantha Owens both went 2 for 4, with Burks hitting a home run. Owens nearly legged out a homer of her own but was thrown out at the plate.

Alejandra Rascon added two hits and a two-RBI double.

Erich registered seven strikeouts, and the only hit she yielded was a triple by Desiree Mendola.
