EAST PROVIDENCE — The East Providence High School softball team had little trouble dispatching visiting Moses Brown on a windy Wednesday afternoon, May 17, as the Townies sent the Quakers away with a 13-0 defeat in a Division I outing ended after four-and-a-half innings due to the 10-Run Rule.
East Providence, which led 1-0 after three innings, exploded for 12 runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to blow the game wide open.
Keira Quadros was her typical dominant self in the circle for the locals, finishing with a five-inning, perfect game no-hitter while striking out 11 of the 15 Quakers she faced.
Quadros actually helped provide herself and her mates the only run they would need when she doubled deep to right centerfield in the bottom of the second inning.
Sylvie Patterson entered the game as a pinch runner, moving to third on a sharp shot by Mackenzie Pimentel and eventually scoring on a wild pitch to make it 1-0 Townies. A potential rally from there never materialized, but it proved not to matter.
That's because the fourth inning happened. Josley Sosa led the way with two hits, a squeeze bunt and a single, while driving in three during the onslaught. Quadros, Ava Mendence, Emma Boisseau, Mackenzie Pimentel and Nethania Figueroa all also had RBI hits as the Townies turned the game into a rout.
The Townies improved to 10-8 in the league with the win. Moses Brown dropped to 1-14. EPHS takes the next week off before wrapping up league play on Wednesday, May 24, in Smithfield against the host Sentinels at 4:30 p.m.
