There are dominant performances, and then there are games like the one put up by Poland (Ohio) Seminary softball pitcher Erin Gabriel. On Monday night, Gabriel led her Poland Seminary squad to a 2-1 victory against Delray Beach (Fla.) American Heritage School in 16 innings. Here’s the most impressive part: Gabriel pitched all 16 innings, and she struck out 34 batters in the process.
Yes, you read that correctly: A softball pitcher recorded 34 strikeouts in a single game. That’s an average of more than two punch-outs per inning, even as the contest stretched beyond the length of a second entire game.
