Silliman, bats help Osky down Newton


Kylee Silliman continued her mastery over Newton in the pitcher's circle as No. 8 (Class 4A) Oskaloosa recorded the 10-0 Little Hawkeye Conference shutout Wednesday night.
Silliman, who threw a no-hitter against the Cardinals on June 16, struggled in allowing just one hit this time and struck out two to go to 13-1 on the season.
"Kylee did a nice job of mixing up her pitches — she only allowed the one hit. In her two wins over Newton — she threw a no-hitter and a one-hitter," Oskaloosa coach Jay Harms said.
Silliman also did a lot of damage for the 26-2 Indians as she had three singles and drove in a run. Two other players — Peyton Zickefoose and Callie Arnold — also had three hits in the game with one of Zickefoose's hit was a double. Kelsie Tomlin and Bethany Rowley both had two hits with Rowley having a double as one of her hits. Aubrey Miller belted a home run and drove in a pair of runs as Oskaloosa (15-1 in LHC) banged out 16 hits in the game.
"The girls did a nice job of rebounding from last night's loss," Harms said. "We really swung the bats well tonight."

On Friday, the Indians will play Davenport West at 1 p.m. then face fifth-ranked (Class 4A) Cedar Rapids Xavier at 4:30 p.m. Then on Saturday, No. 6 (5A) Muscatine will the opponent at 9 a.m. and No. 7 (5A) Waukee will be at 12:30 p.m.
