MURDOCK - Samantha Gjerde tossed her third no-hitter of the season as KMS cruised in a Camden Conference doubleheader on Tuesday.
The Saints, ranked No. 1 in Class A, won 11-0 in Game One behind Gjerde’s gem, and two seven-run innings were the catalyst for a 17-0 victory in Game Two.
The Saints improved to 17-0 overall.
In the first game, after walking the first batter, Gjerde didn’t allow another base runner, striking out 11 in five innings.
For good measure, she also had two doubles and three RBIs.
In Game Two, Molly Jeppeson continued the pitching dominance, allowing just one hit.
Andrea Olson led the offense this time, blasting three doubles and driving in three runs.
The Fighting Saints have just Tracy-Milroy-Balaton and Willmar standing between them and an unbeaten regular season. They travel to TMB for a doubleheader next Tuesday.
