Kaysville • Good hitters are valuable, but good pitchers are vital in the postseason.
The Davis softball team improved to 2-0 in the Class 5A state tournament Thursday afternoon thanks in large part to junior Mia Cullimore proving she's pretty darn good at both in a 10-6 win over Lehi.
Cullimore, who finished 2 for 3 with three RBIs in addition to eight strikeouts in a complete-game performance in the circle, retired six straight Lehi batters and drove in three runs in the opening two innings to help the Darts grab a 6-0 lead.
"I was just focusing on throwing hard, getting them to hit ground balls, and I knew my defense had my back as long as I was giving it 100 percent," Cullimore said. "At the plate, I was just trying to back myself up on offense. If I'm going to allow runs, I might as well help my team out and get us some runs as well."
