Randolph’s Otte Throws 9th Career No-Hitter
Randolph Rockets senior fastpitch hurler Morgyn Otte threw her 9th career no-hitter today in a 16-1 five inning victory over Alden-Conger/Glenville Emmons.
It was the future Southwest State University of Marshall player's 4th no-hit performance of this season. The 14-0 Rockets have seen Otte pitch nine shutouts. In 66 innings she has allowed 21 hits.
Head Coach Dennis Trom told KDHL, "Remember she missed last season. Morgyn has re-written the pitching records at Randolph and would have shattered many of them by bigger margins had she pitched a 2020 season."
Otte struck out 6 and had no walks. She threw 54 pitches, 37 strikes.
Randolph had 17 hits led by Megan Erickson with 3 hits and 4 RBI. Erickson clubbed a two run home run in the third inning. She added a sacrifice fly RBI and run scoring single.
Otte also had a good day at the plate with 3 hits, 2 RBI. Carly Kimmes had 2 hits including a double, 3 RBI. Meredith Taylor actually had the most hits with 4 for 2 RBI.
Those four hittters are at the top of the Rockets batting order. Randolph hosts Houston 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
