Softball: Yokota’s Diaz fires no-hitter
NAVAL AIR FACILITY ATSUGI, Japan – Senior Adrianna Diaz tossed a no-hitter, the second in two days of the Far East Division II softball tournament, and helped herself with three RBIs as Yokota blanked E.J. King 10-0 on Thursday.
The Panthers later routed host Zama 14-2 and got within one game of the championship game. They face top seed and last year’s runner-up Daegu in a Friday morning contest, with the winner advancing to the double-elimination final.
“She knows how to lead,” Panthers coach Preston Heitstuman said of Diaz. “They know how to come out of holes because of her. She leads the way.”
Elsewhere on the Pacific diamonds, five-time defending champion ASIJ pounded St. Mary’s 14-2, while Kubasaki beat Humphreys 5-1 in their Division I baseball semifinals. The Mustangs and Dragons face each other for the title for the second straight year.
