The Wyandotte Bears brought their bats to Trenton and pitcher Miranda Macko did the rest as the visitors shut out the Trojans 6-0 on Friday in softball.

"We came here to battle and we did that. We stayed focused and really stepped it up," said Wyandotte coach Jackie Jagiello. "We haven't been hitting well the last few games so it was nice to see us pick it up and hit like I know we can."

The Bears (5-1 overall, 4-0 league) have good pitching and solid defense so if they hit, they feel like they can beat anyone.

"It's like a domino effect," Jagiello said. "When one hits the rest follow."

And that's what happened on Friday afternoon at Trenton.

Leadoff hitter Selene Pauley got things rolling right away with a leadoff triple. The sophomore scored to make it 1-0.

In the bottom of the first, Trenton had back-to-back bunt singles. But good defense and a strike out by Macko kept the home team off the board.

In the second, Eleya Montroy hit a one-out double and scored when Katie Guckian reached on an error as the Bears led 2-0.

Singles by Shelby Groat and Selene Pauley got things rolling in the fifth. An RBI double by Ashley Ouellette made it 3-0.

In the sixth, the Bears would add to their lead. Sydni Pauley tripled and scored on Tierney Runions' single. Montroy doubled again and the Bears were in position to break the game open. Guckian and Maya Ross each drove in runs to give Wyandotte a 6-0 lead.

Macko was solid for the Bears, pitching the shutout against Trenton.

"It was her best performance of the year," Jagiello said. "She has really taken on a leadership role and didn't let anything get her down and did exactly what we need her to do."
