DALE — Propelled by Delanie Manning and Danyn Lang, Dale smashed Crescent 11-1 Thursday before rain washed out the second game of the planned doubleheader.
Manning and Lang both went 3 for 3 with two doubles and a single in the 3 ½-inning contest ended by the run rule.
Addie Bell added a three-run double during a 10-run third inning. Lacey Savage contributed two singles as Dale rolled up 10 hits in just three innings.
Manning also was credited with the pitching victory. She whiffed eight batters, walked two and gave up one harmless single in a four-inning outing.
Crescent’s sole run came in the fourth. Dale made two errors.
Dale, 6-2, will travel to Fairview today for a 4:30 twinbill.
