Dominguez was stranded on second as the tying run in the seventh after singling and moving to second on a sacrifice bunt from Kyla Hardy. But Camarillo (6-0) right-hander Eryka Gonzales collected her 11th strike to finish a complete game. O’Leary had 15 strikeouts in her complete game. The Scorpions broke through for all three of their runs in the fourth, jumping ou to a 3-0 lead on an RBI from Emily Bartlett and two-run single from Carly Ormand. “Definitely didn’t have the velocity or control that I would’ve liked,” O’Leary said. “Not the best (outing) but I’ll come back strong.” Valencia (4-2) countered with both of its runs in the fifth. Miller-Godsey drove in won with a double and Emma Bramson drove in the other with a sacrifice fly. Dominguez’s single in the seventh was the team’s only hit beyond the fifth inning. The sixth was the only inning the team didn’t strand a runner in scoring position to end an inning. “We just need some of the girls to go up there and want to hit with the bases loaded and in those big situations,” Lee said. “But we’ll get there. It’s a long season with a lot of games.” The Vikings begin play in the Tournament of Champions in Bullhead, Ariz., on Thursday against Rio Rancho (N.M.).
Tennessee signee Ally Shipman wastes no time and jumps on the first pitch of the bottom of the first for a single. She was stranded at third, though, as @VH_Softball and Camarillo are scoreless after one. pic.twitter.com/ZpcwypYskS— Ryan Posner (@ryanposner_) March 6, 2018
