ZACHARY -- Five Walker errors, four in the bottom of the 1st inning, allowed Zachary to roar in front early on the way to a 15-0 rout in District 4-5A play on Thursday.
The Lady Broncos (9-7, 2-1 district) pushed home six unearned runs in the 1st and then churned out six runs with two outs in the 3rd frame to remove all drama.
Alyssa Hohense’s leadoff bunt single in the 3rd inning was the only baserunner Walker (6-7, 0-2) managed against Zachary pitcher Brooke Martinez in a second consecutive run-rule loss in league play.
The Lady Cats head across the river for the Brusly Tournament this weekend.
