Bragg Crushes Liberty Park 19-0

The Bragg Rocket Softball Team is beginning to look a lot like my memory of Mike Tyson fights when I was younger. All my friends pooled our money for the pay-per-view of the fight, knowing it would probably only last a round or two.

The Rockets needed 2 1/2 innings in this one. Winning 19-0 on the strength of a high powered offense and great pitching from Alexis Piersol as she threw a 1-hitter.

The game was called due to the run rule.

Bragg moves to 7-1 in the Metro, with what is shaping up to be a special season.

The Rockets came out firing with 8 runs in the first inning and 11 runs in the 2nd.

Emerson Murrell, Aniya Tyson, Layla Berry and Chloe Sanders all with a hit, and Piersol and Zoe Caufield with 2 hits each as the Rockets had 9 hits in 2 1/2 innings.

Liberty Park managed 1 hit in the game with 6 errors.

The Rockets take their impressive offense on the road on Wednesday to Oak Mountain.
