RACELAND, Ky. - Mandy Estep showed the Raceland Lady Rams how to hit. She just didn't let them.
Estep collected three hits including two doubles and a triple to back her own no-hit pitching Tuesday in a 2-0 shutout of the Raceland Lady Rams.
Estep struck out six and walked just two in taming the Lady Rams over seven innings.
"Mandy did a great job pitching. She had a big game," Redwomen coach Mary Harper said. "We had a real good game. We did a real good job of making contact with the ball."
Rock Hill got the only run it needed in the fourth inning when Estep tripled and Bobbi Harper singled.
