The Harriman Lady Blue Devils are off to a great start as David Currier’s squad ran their season mark to 6-0 recently with a 7-1 victory over Westmoreland.

The game was limited to five innings because Harriman was hosting both Coalfield and Westmoreland, but the amount of time didn’t seem to matter as the Lady Devils were in control from the outset.

Lady Devil pitcher Kayla Turner had another strong outing as she tossed a one-hitter with two walks to go along with four strikeouts.

Turner got all the support she would need in the bottom of the first inning as the Lady Devils jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead.

Moriah Anderson opened the game with a walk and two stolen bases before scoring on a single from Turner. Turner later scored on a single from Ashley Daugherty.

Harriman put three more runs on the board in the bottom of the second inning.

Samantha Stout drew a walk to start the inning then Anderson reached safely on a dropped third strike and Tiffany Eskridge walked to load the bases for Turner. Turner came up big as she ripped a two-run single to make the score 4-0.

Eskridge later scored on a wild pitch to make the score 5-0 after two innings of play.

Harriman made it 7-0 with two more runs in the bottom of the third inning.

Lyndsey Daugherty and Whitney Goldston both walked with one out and both eventually scored on wild pitches to give Harriman their final runs of the night.

Westmoreland picked up their only hit and run of the game in the top of the fourth inning.

Harriman will now take a few days off for Spring Break before returning to action Saturday evening against Loudon.
