Barons cool off Crusaders' offense


© St. Petersburg Times, published April 6, 2001

ST. PETERSBURG -- During the past two weeks, Keswick Christian destroyed opposing pitchers. Six games, six wins, 94 runs.

But it hadn't faced a pitcher like Angela Vidal.

The St. Petersburg Catholic ace kept her 0.00 ERA intact Thursday, shutting down Keswick 9-0 in a showdown between the area's top private schools.

The Barons (12-2) ran their winning streak to 11 by scoring three in the second and two in the third.

In the second, Danielle Gaudet singled off of the glove of pitcher Amanda Colangelo, scoring Lauren Timberlake. Gaudet later scored on a wild pitch, and Alicia Fudge legged out an infield single to score Sara Brady and put SPC up 3-0.

Jenny Feola's seeing-eye single up the middle in the third scored Vidal to make it 4-0, and Feola scored on a fielder's choice by Gaudet.

From there, Vidal (7-0) had more than enough runs to work with, considering one run has been enough all season. The senior struck out 15, and no Crusader reached third base.

"I pretty much knew what to expect," Keswick coach Robin Hintz said.

Vidal ran her string of scoreless innings to 48, during which she has struck out 107 and walked 14.

"I just worry batter to batter," said Vidal, dismissing any thoughts of her streak. "I have confidence in my defense."

Colangelo took the loss for Keswick (7-2), giving up eight earned runs and nine hits and walking five.
