SHREVEPORT – Centenary pitchers Jessica Bock and Hillary Phillips looked like a dominate one-two punch on Saturday afternoon, as Bock allowed three hits and no runs against Missouri State, while Phillips tossed a no-hitter against Bryant. The Ladies were winners over MSU 6-1 in game one and shutout BU 4-0 in game two.


Game One


Centenary scored all it needed too in the first four innings against the Bears, and the Ladies didn’t allow their one run until the top of seventh when Taylor Farley went yard. However, topping Farley was senior Emerald Doria, who opened the game with a solo blast and again went long an inning later, which was a two run bomb.


Bock, meanwhile, threw six innings allowed just three hits, walked one and fanned nine for her second win of the season. Phillips came in for one inning and gave up a run, but struck out one.


Game Two


In the night cap, the only thing that could touch Phillips was a come backer that got her in the mouth. However, a little blood didn’t affect her performance, as she didn’t allow a runner to each base in four innings.


The perfect game was over early, as she walked the second batter she faced. Her defense let a runner on in the third, and the Odessa, Texas, native walked another in the fifth, which was the last Bulldog to reach.


Knocking in the runs for Centenary was freshman Lindsey Smith and junior Beth Krysiak, while Haley Bassett scored twice and went 2-for-3 from the dish.


Centenary’s next action will be on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m., against Nicholls State with the pregame show starting five minutes before the first pitch. The game will also be heard on www.GoCentenary.com.
