Mercer Island resident Samantha Pillsbury helped her softball team get to the semifinals during a tournament in Centralia.
Pillsbury, who plays on the Issaquah Flame team, pitched 23 innings during the U12 State ASA tournament. She went 4-0 during the tournament with a .08 ERA, and faced some of the top teams in the United States.
During a complete shutout game, Pillsbury pitched a two-hitter, striking out six and allowed no walks. She is one of 10 Mercer Island girls playing competitive softball this summer.
