ALBANY -- The Anna Laine Brock Express pulled into the station Monday -- and when she pulled out, she left with her first no-hitter of the season

Brock, a 2009 Herald All-Area selection, struck out 10 Westwood batters Monday during an 11-0 Sherwood rout that lasted just five innings. Brock and SCA both moved to 6-2 on the season as Kaylee Dixon led the way from the plate, going 3-for-3, followed by Jordan Cox (2-for-3) and Christina Charles (2-for-2).

Brock, who is just a freshman, now has an ERA of .750. Sherwood plays again today at home vs. Crisp Academy at 4:30 p.m., while Westwood plays Terrell Academy on Thursday at home.

RANDOLPH SOUTHERN 9, SOUTHLAND 7:

Speaking of dominating pitching performances, the Lady Patriots' Madison Ragan struck out 14 batters Thursday and Gaby Jackson hit a three-run triple in the fourth inning to help Randolph hold off a furious rally by Southland. Randolph Southern is now 2-2 and plays Westwood next on Aug. 31. Southland plays Sherwood on Thursday in Americus.
