STROTHER — An eight-run Meeker explosion in the top of the first inning was just enough to stave off Strother 8-6 Thursday.
Madison Buoy finished the day with three singles. Madison Gabeau and Kacey Babek added a double and single apiece while Aubrey Pruitt collected two singles.
Lexi Lopez was Meeker’s RBI leader with three. Pruitt scored twice.
Gabeau earned the pitching triumph with a seven-inning 10-hitter. She struck out six and walked five.
Meeker compiled 13 hits.
The Lady Bulldogs, 8-5, are scheduled to entertain Jones today at 5 p.m. Following a holiday weekend break, Meeker will play host to Heritage Hall Tuesday at 5.
