GREENVILLE, NC (FOX 44) — The Midway Little League All Stars got off to a perfect 2-0 start at the Little League Softball World Series on Wednesday with a 2-0 win over Puerto Rico.
The star of the show in the game was undoubtedly pitcher Zaneria Hughes, who struck out 16 batters on her way to a no-hitter.
For Hughes, this was an accomplishment that still brought her plenty of excitement, although she had a feeling pretty early in the game that it would be a possibility.
“Probably when I got throughout the whole lineup and I saw that they weren’t hitting much and I had my defense behind me that could make plays and I just got through it.”
Midway Little League will be back in action on Friday.
