Lady Leopards Win 7th Straight, Blank Perry 8-0
Louisville 8, Perry 0
Jordan Monnot went 3-for-4 with a 2-run homer, 2 runs, and 4 RBI’s to lead the Lady Leopards to an 8-0 win over visiting Perry Monday. Gianna Falcone also pitched a complete game shutout to send Louisville to their seventh straight victory.
Monnot’s second inning blast to right field was her first home run of the season and the second of her career against the Panthers. She nearly hit a home run with the wind blowing in at Perry last week, but this time there was no doubt. Monnot would also hit RBI singles in both the third and fourth innings to help Louisville’s cause.
In the circle, Falcone picked up her ninth shutout of the season. She also fanned 6 and allowed just 3 hits to improve to 17-2 on the year.
The Leopards scored five runs in the fourth inning to rip the game wide open. The big hits included Annie Woolf’s 2-run double and Kylie Zifer’s RBI triple. Chandler Rice, who also had an RBI in the inning, finished the evening 2-for-4 with a double, 2 stolen bases, and 2 runs.
In the bottom of the fifth, Katie Cozy missed a game-winning two-run homer by inches off the top of the fence in center field. Cozy would settle for a double, but the Lady Leopards still earned a satisfying 8-0 victory over the Panthers.
Louisville’s victory was the largest win and only their second shutout ever against Perry. The Lady Leopards are now 6-3 against the Lady Panthers since Head Coach Chet Givens took over in 2009. Prior to that Louisville was just 1-14 against Perry. The Lady Leps are now 17-2 on the year.
