Shorecrest jumped out to an early lead on Shorewood and captured a 12-0 softball victory Saturday at Shorewood’s home Meridian Park Fields in the second annual Blue Day and Pink Night for Cancer game.

The game was decided quickly as Shorecrest exerted its will early with seven runs in the first three innings.

An RBI single by Anisa Gomez in the first inning, and an RBI single by Amanda Eshelman, a passed ball and a sacrifice fly by Amanda Hartley in the second inning helped Shorecrest put some runs on the board early.

Callie Anderson got a hit in each of her four at bats.

Shorecrest got the win thanks in large part to Eshelman's dominant, six-strikeout, winning pitching performance. Eshelman allowed one earned run, three hits and one walk over 4 1/3 innings of a game shortened to five innings by the mercy rule.

Shorecrest added four runs in the top of the fifth. A clutch wild pitch scored Jeanna Berg to open the scoring in the frame. That was followed by Ivey Uppinghouse’s single, scoring Hartley.

Alissa Kaufhold hit 2 for 2 with a double for the Scots.

Stephanie Vollbrecht of Shorewood hit a double in two at-bats. Vreni Hutt was the losing pitcher.

Shorecrest and Shorewood met at Shorewood's home field at Meridian Park School as part of a full day of baseball and softball.

The Blue Day/Pink Night series of games was Eshelman’s senior project, with proceeds going to the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

In the first game of the day, the Shorewood junior varsity girls lost to the Bothell JVs 13-0. Holly Ebel pitched for Shorewood.
