Addy Harmier only needed one pitch to send her team home with a win.
Harmier led off the bottom of the seventh inning with a solo home run off the first pitch of the inning and the Skyview softball team walked off with a 4-3 win over Ridgefield on Friday.
The non-league game between the top teams in 4A and 2A Greater St. Helens leagues lived up to the billing.
Ridgefield (7-1) tied the game at 3-3 in the top of the seventh on Maizy Whitlow’s two-run home run. Madison Walker, who hit a solo home run in the fourth, had walked to lead off the seventh.
It was Maddie Milhorn’s only walk allowed in the game as the Skyview pitcher had 12 strikeouts including the next three Ridgefield batters after the go-ahead home run.
Maddi Scull hit a two-run double for the Storm (10-0) in the third inning.
Harmier was 3 for 4 with the big home run and a double. Milhorn also had two hits.
