After a pair of tough losses, including one in district play, Monday's game might be just what the doctor ordered for the Lady Friars.

Bishop Lynch (10-10-1 overall, 6-2 district) pounded Trinity Christian for 17 hits in a 19-0 run-rule victory that lasted just four innings.

The Lady Friars had entered the game recovering from Saturday's 15-0 road loss at Coppell, preceded by a 3-0 loss in extra innings to district leader Nolan Catholic.

On Monday, the second-place BL squad took out some frustration on last-place TCA (0-7 district), opening with four runs in the first frame, two more in the third and a whopping 13 in the fourth.

The Lady Trojans were held to just two hits while committing five errors in the field.

Kristen Linares picked up the win, tossing four shutout innings with no walks and nine strikeouts. Linares threw just 55 pitches in the contest, 42 of which went for strikes.

Six players collected multiple hits for the team, including a 3-hit performance from Riley Cantrell that included a triple and four runs batted in.

Gabi Quintanilla had two hits, one of which was an inside-the-park home run, Lillia Farlow had three singles, Megan Metry doubled and singled while Reiley Smith and KyLeigh Freeman singled twice.

Farlow drove in four runs, Metry knocked in a pair and Alexis Martinez drove in two runs on a pinch-hit single. The Lady Friars also stole 14 bases, with Freeman swiping three. Five others stole two bases.

Bishop Lynch returns home today for the second of four games this week. The Lady Friars will host Bishop Dunne at Ferguson Park. First pitch in the varsity contest is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
