Junior right-hander Katlyn Hoeh threw a three-inning perfect game, the first of her career in Newport’s 15-0 win over Bellevue on Tuesday.
Hoeh had one previous no-hitter. She also hit a grand slam, her first long ball of the season, into the left center field gap. It was the seventh career homer for Hoeh, who also plated a run on a fielder’s choice in the second.
