Danville scored three times in the bottom of the sixth inning to pull away for a 4-0 win over Lincoln County in the 45th District opener for both.
The host Admirals (4-2, 1-0 district) racked up 11 hits off Lincoln pitcher Jana Crabtree. Crabtree struck out four and walked one for the Patriots (3-4, 0-1).
Chelsea Wallace picked up the win for Danville and her first shutout of the season. She struck out four, walked three and benefited from three Danville double plays.
"We left five runners in scoring position," Lincoln coach Pam Young said. "We did a poor job moving people around. Danville just hit it better than we did today."
