PEDRO — What a difference a day makes.

After five walks and three errors the night before, the Rock Hill Redwomen played error-free defense and pitcher Sami Nixon fired a three-hitter in a 4-1 win over the Piketon Lady Red Streaks on Thursday.

Nixon struck out nine and did not walk a batter to get the win as Rock Hill improved to 3-0.

“We were a completely different team tonight than last night,” said Rock Hill coach Mary Harper. “When you are young, you’re up and down. Tonight all the girls stepped up and they were all focused.”

Rock Hill got a run in the first inning on a walk to Jenna Lane, Brooke Easthom’s sacrifice, a wild pitch and Brooke Hanshaw’s sacrifice fly.

Piketon tied the game in the third and Rock Hill answered with three runs in the fourth.

Hanshaw walked and Kenzie Martin doubled. Kaelynn Ellis was safe on a fielder’s choice as a run scored. Lindy Simpson had an RBI single, Nixon hit into a fielder’s choice for another run, Katie Harris singled and Sami Dillon capped the rally with an RBI single.

Martin and Harris each went 2-3.
