Two California prep softball teams combine for 95 runs

So did the new high school softball rule moving the pitcher's circle back three feet have any impact on this game? Here's an interesting report from the Associated Press.

Talk about a nice day at the plate - for everyone.

Two California high schools combined for a record 95 runs Tuesday when Cuyama Valley scored 13 times in the seventh inning to earn a dramatic 48-47 victory against Coast Union in a fast-pitch softball game.

The previous mark, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations, was established when East Machias Washington Academy in Massachusetts beat Lubec 88-6 on April 28, 1983.

According to The Tribune in San Luis Obispo, Coast Union's Morgan May hit for the cycle and finished with 14 RBIs, but her team still dropped to 0-16.

The game lasted 3 1/2 hours.
