PEDRO — The pitching for South Gallia was good. The pitching for Rock Hill was a little better.

Rock Hill used the strong pitching of Morgan Schug to blank the South Gallia Lady Rebels 3-0 Tuesday.

“South Gallia is a pretty good team. It took us some time to adjust to their pitching. Their pitcher (Chandra Canaday) wasn’t bad,” said Rock Hill coach Mary Harper.

Schug didn’t do too bad either for the Redwomen. Schug pitched a 3-hitter as she struck out nine and walked two.

Canaday fanned three and allowed one walk.

Rock Hill (5-6) scored twice in the first inning when BreeAnna Depriest singled, moved up on an error and scored on a hit by Schug. Dani Crabtree doubled to score courtesy runner Brooke Knipp.

The Redwomen got a run in the fourth inning when Schug singled, courtesy runner Knipp advanced on an error and scored on a hit by Crabtree.

Crabtree went 3-3 with two runs batted in. Depriest and Schug each went 2-3 as Rock Hill had nine hits.

The Redwomen host River Valley Wednesday in an Ohio Valley Conference game.
