Bainbridge shelled Bishop Blanchet 10-1 in girls fastpitch softball Thursday at home.

The Spartans picked up their first Metro League win of the season thanks to the explosive bats of Natalie Allen, Emma Lindsay and Alison Reichert.

Bainbridge battered the Braves from the start as the Spartans shot out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning.

BHS tacked on another three runs in the second to lead 7-0.

Bishop Blanchet finally found its offense in the third inning, after a double by Maria Biondi brought in the Braves' only run.

The Spartans tacked on insurance runs in the fourth and sixth innings to finish the scoring at 10-1.

Allen paced the Spartan offense on 3-for-3 batting. She contributed two doubles and had three RBIs.

Lindsay went 2-for-3 at the plate with three RBIs, and teammate Reichert went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBIs.

Deahna King was the winning pitcher for Bainbridge and went the distance. She fanned eight Blanchet batters in the contest.

The win improved Bainbridge's record to 1-1 (1-0 Metro League).
