BOSSIER CITY - BPCC pitcher Kaitlyn Roth tossed a complete game one-hitter in game two of a Region XIV doubleheader to lead the Lady Cavaliers to a 4-0 win and sweep of the Paris Junior College Lady Dragons Saturday afternoon at the BPCC Softball Field.
Roth, a sophomore from Wichita, Kansa, pitched seven innings, allowing one hit and zero runs while striking out six and walking none. It was her sixth complete game and second shutout of the season. The win improved Roth's record to 11-5 on the season.
All of the Lady Cavaliers runs came in the bottom of the fourth inning. With the bases loaded, Kelsie Ward scored the game's first run on a wild pitch before Abi Cole would clear the bases on a line drive, three-run homer over the center field fence. It was the former Benton High standout's fourth home run of the season.
