All it takes for the Brawley Union High School softball team is one hit.
When Leighan Sudduth is on the mound, all she asks from her teammates is timely hitting and strong, consistent defense.
So far this year she's received both.
The most recent example came in the Wildcats' biggest game of the season, a 12-2 five-inning hammering of Clairemont High in the first round of the CIF San Diego Section Division III playoffs.
Sudduth pitched a complete game, striking out four and only giving up three hits, with her offense giving her more than enough support with 13 hits.
"As long as we hit the ball, everything falls into place," said the 17-year-old junior. "Our defense is good and they've been playing really well all season. I think we might have been the best in the league."
While they finished second in the Imperial Valley League to Central Union, the Wildcats played as if they were the best Saturday against Clairemont.
