BABY Jane Raro hurled a no-hitter highlighting her splendid pitching performance in lifting Manila to twin victories in the Big League Softball World Series in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Raro’s five-inning shutout pulled the Asia Pacific representatives to an 11-0 win over Southeast in five innings for their second lopsided victory of the day.
Manila had earlier outclassed Southwest, 13-4, to come back after dropping its first two assignments with Raro, playing for Adamson Lady Falcons in the UAAP, giving up a run on four hits in three innings.
Manila improved to 2-2 win-loss in this nine-team tournament with Ontario and Latin America still unbeaten in two games.
Rizza Bernardino slammed her second home run of the tournament in the sixth inning while Charmaine Joy Oria belted her first in the fifth of the one-sided affair against the Alice, Texas-based Southwest squad.
Against the Southeast team from Florida, Michelle Lentija also connected on a two-run home run in the third that saw Manila scoring five runs. The game ended two innings later via mercy rule.
