PLYMOUTH â€” The Lady Pilgrims knew Thursdayâ€™s make-up game with unbeaten Class 2A, No. 1 Rochester was going to be a challenge. The Zebras lived up to their reputation.
Unfortunately for Plymouth, the very issue the Pilgrims have been struggling with lately â€” namely, falling behind by large deficits in the early innings â€” is the very strength that has pushed Rochester out to a 10-0 start. The Zebras collected 11 hits over the first three frames, quickly putting the game out of reach en route to a five-inning, 15-2 win at Centennial Park.
