Oklahoma-bound Nicole May tossed a three-hit shutout with three walks and four strikeouts to outduel Arizona-bound Devyn Netz, leading OC Batbusters-Stith to a 1-0 victory over So Cal Athletics-Richardson in the 18U championship game of the PGF Shootout on Sunday at Fountain Valley Sportspark in Orange County, California.
Netz also threw a three-hitter with two walks and three strikeouts.
"It was an old-fashioned pitcher's game," Batbusters coach Mike Stith said. "They both pitched really well."
The Batbusters got to Netz in the top of the seventh in ITB.
Uncommitted 2022 2B/SS/OF Ailana Agbayani, who was placed at second to start the inning, stole third base and scored on uncommitted 2022 C Alexis Ramirez's sacrifice fly to left field.
"She will be a very common name in softball," Stith said of Agbayani, the daughter of former major leaguer Benny Agbayani. "She's only a sophomore."
May retired the So Cal A's with a 1-2-3 inning in the bottom of the seventh to lock down the shutout.
