Hallie Mullett looked a bit vulnerable in the first inning.
The sophomore left-hander shook off a few butterflies and was pretty much invincible the rest of the way.
The host Tallmadge softball team won its eighth consecutive game after scoring an 7-0 victory Akron Ellet April 26.
With the win, the Lady Blue Devils improved to 14-4 on the season. The Lady Orangemen dropped to 6-5.
Mullett issued a walk and gave up a couple of hard-hit balls in the bottom of the first.
Fortunately, her defense made the plays behind her and she escaped a somewhat shaky first inning unscathed.
She was almost untouchable the rest of the way.
Mullett pitched a complete-game three-hitter to improve to 6-2 in the pitcher's circle.
Using a wicked changeup, Mullett finished with nine strikeouts and issued just three walks in the 113-pitch gem.
Mullett allowed a hit and issued a walk and was victimized by two errors in the seventh.
But the sophomore hurler got the last batter, Ellet sophomore shortstop Mackenzie McLeod, to hit a dribbler down the first-base line on an off-speed pitch for the final out.
Although Tallmadge was just 4 of 19 with runners on base, the Lady Blue Devils got some timely hits, a few steals and they took just about every base if the pitch got away from the catcher.
Tallmadge got three of its runs on sacrifice flies. The Lady Blue Devils got another run on a passed ball.
Tallmadge scored a run apiece in the first and fourth innings, three times in the third and twice in the sixth. The Lady Blue Devils finished with 10 hits and two errors.
Sophomore center fielder Autumn Malicoat had three hits, including two bunt singles, three runs scored and a stolen base at the top of the order for Tallmadge.
Senior designated player Madison Rearick, the Lady Blue Devils' No. 2 batter, also had three hits, including a double, three runs scored, a stolen base and a run batted in.
Freshman catcher Jordyn Severns had two sacrifice flies and left-handed senior first baseman Olivia Carey finished with a single, a walk, a run scored and an RBI.
Sophomore left fielder Gia Spitali added a sacrifice fly for Tallmadge.
Lady Orangemen junior right-hander Maddie Anderson had stretches of dominance. She finished with 12 strikeouts, but she also issued all three of her walks in the third inning.
The Lady Blue Devils were patient at the plate and made Anderson work throughout the game. Anderson ended up throwing 138 pitches in six innings of work.
