Doctor and Shaw Fire No-Hitter in Sweep Over Bethel

UPLAND, Ind. – Great pitching from Jessica Doctor and Darby Shaw combined for a no-hitter on Tuesday against Bethel to win game one, 8-0 (5). Taylor won the second game on a walk-off hit from Taylor Wilson.

Doctor (12-7) picked up the win in the circle for the Trojans. She totaled four strikeouts for the Trojans. Shaw pitched the final two innings in relief and picked up two strikeouts. Neither pitcher gave up a hit or run.

Taylor’s defense shut down every opportunity that Bethel had to score, which led the Trojans to their mercy rule win.

Hannah Castor was big in the Trojans’ winning effort. Castor totaled two solo home runs, scoring in the third and fifth innings. She finished 2-3 at the plate and had three RBIs.

Taylor completed the season sweep, 5-4, via a walk-off run in game two.

Taylor overcame a four-run deficit in the night cap to defeat the Pilots.

With time winding down for Taylor, the Trojan offense picked up their first runs of the game in the fifth inning.

Lauren Kanai reached home plate after Kristin Mihalic hit a single to right field. Moments later, Kara Tucker ran home when Maddi Evans grounded out.

Having a lot of ground to make up, TU was not able to score in the sixth leaving no room for error in the seventh inning.

Kanai was the lead-off hitter for Taylor and doubled to left field. Miscommunication by Bethel’s defense sent her to third base.

Tucker scored the game-tying run and Mihalic had the walk-off run when Wilson managed to get on base after a Pilot error.

The Pilots had three errors in the final frame, which allowed Taylor to win, 5-4.

After coming to pitch in relief for Kanai, Maddi Evans (1-1) earned her first win of the season for the Purple and Gold. Evans put in three innings of work for TU.

Taylor (31-11, 23-7 CL) will travel to St. Francis (22-21, 13-15 CL) on Tuesday, before hosting No. 2 Marian (42-0, 30-0 CL) on Friday and Mount Vernon Nazarene (20-18, 15-13 CL) on Saturday to close out the regular season.
