McPherson’s 18U Lady Express rolled to six straight victories over the weekend in the McPherson Tournament to start its season in style, and basically was tested just once as it displayed great pitching and timely hitting.

A summary:

• Express 12, Motley Crue 1 — It was a nice welcome back for Kiley Kerr, who played with her former high school teammates and went 3 for 4. Also back was 2014 Bullpup grad Marissa Axelson, who hit a homer and drove in three runs. Jasmine Wann also homered. Julie Sinclair picked up the win.

• Express 7, Rebels 0 — Three runs in the second inning and four in the fourth sparked the win as Madison Hoffman threw a three-hit shutout. Stevie Stockham and Chelsey Kerr smashed homers and Stockham drove in four runs. She had two hits as did Sinclair and Nicole Cheek, another 2014 Bullpup grad.

• Express 16, Royals 0 — This was over early as the Express scored six runs in the first and 10 in the second.  Everybody contributed, but Chelsey Kerr had a triple and double. Hoffman pitched three shutout innings.

• Express 4, Express 16s 1 — Kiley Kerr set the table at the top of the order by going 3 for 3 and Sinclair fanned eight to pick up the win. Stockham added two hits.

• Express 11, Royals 0 — Again the Royals weren’t much competition. Wann and Chelsey Kerr went yard and Wann also hit a double, as did Hoffman and Hannah Marshall. Hoffman threw a two-hit shutout. Alex Landwehr had her best game going 3 for 3.

• Express 7, Lady Lightning 0 — More great pitching as Sinclair threw a three-hitter. Chelsey Kerr had another monster game with a homer and double. Marshall, Axelson and Sinclair all added two hits.

The Express will play again June 19-21 in Kansas City.
