School roundup: Sullivan, Sandwich nip Plymouth South

As a pitcher who is 6-0 with a 0.19 ERA, Julia Sullivan rarely makes a misstep. But when the Sandwich ace fielded a bunt in the top of the first inning against visiting Plymouth South on Friday, she threw the ball past her first baseman and into the outfield, allowing Shannon Colbert to round the bases and score.

Trailing, 1-0, right off the bat, Sullivan took matters into her own hands. The senior went on to pitch all seven innings, striking out 11, while walking one and allowing one hit. She also knocked in the winning run as Sandwich (7-0) prevailed, 2-1.

“That was a very ugly start to the game for us,” said Sandwich coach Jean Russell. “To have any kind of adversity that early in the game was certainly new to her. I think she got a little ticked off after that. She had to collect herself and get her composure back.”

In 36 innings this season, Sullivan has struck out 74 — averaging 12 per game. She has allowed only seven walks in six games, which Russell says is the biggest difference in her performance from last year.

Wakefield 12, Wilmington 0 — Sophomore Amanda Boulter pitched her third no-hitter of the season to lead the No. 19 Warriors (8-1).

Bellingham 7, Medway 0 — GG Ricciardi allowed six hits and no walks to earn her first win of the season for the Blackhawks (7-1).

Medford 10, Everett 8 — Katie Napier and Lauren Walsh each had three hits and two RBIs for the Mustangs.

Peabody 13, Marblehead 1 — Sophomore Michelle McHugh went 4 for 4 with a home run and three RBIs, and Jess Raymond had two doubles and two RBIs for the Tanners.
