Texas softball pitcher Bea Lara whiffs 30 (!) in superhuman effort

Orange Grove pitcher Bea Lara put together a stellar performance at the right time in the middle of a race for a district championship.
Lara struck out 30 in the Bulldogs’ 12-inning win against Rockport-Fulton on Tuesday night. If some quick math is done that is more than two strikeouts an inning and 30 of the 36 outs came via strikeout.
Lara, who signed with East Texas Baptist on Monday and has been among the area strikeout leaders this season, struck out the side in the seven of the 12 innings. She recorded all three outs via strikeout in the first, second, fourth, seventh, eighth, ninth and 10th innings
