Maybe ESPN’s next commercial should feature Lindsay Taylor as the machine.
Taylor pitched her fourth no-hitter of the year tonight, walking one and striking out 10 in five innings for Kings Park (11-1) in a 9-0 win over East Hampton in a League V-VI crossover. She also has two career perfect games.
This is Taylor’s second no-no of the week, as she held Rocky Point hitless on Monday in a 16-0 victory. She walked her only batter in the fourth inning of both games.
Taylor has eight shutouts on the year, six straight shutouts and has only been scored upon three times.
Then she had to go and raise her profile a bit more on Thursday by hitting a two-out two-run home run in the first inning to help Kings Park to a 4-0 lead.
Taylor has struck out 143 batters in 71 1/3 innings this year and is closing in on 700 strikeouts for her career.
As Hans and Frans used to say: here me now, listen to me later and believe me next Tuesday after dinner, Class A is just going to be a ridiculously good playoff this year.
