NAPLES, FLA.

Marissa Moschel
NAPLES, FLA.

Michelle, 15, and Marissa, 13, pitched the Naples Braves to the title at the Senior League Softball World Series. The sisters became the first teammates ever to throw no-hitters in the same year at the series. Michelle pitched hers against Appleton, Wis., on the tournament's first day, and Marissa did the same against Natboro, Pa., two days later, striking out eight, including six batters in a row. Michelle, who was appearing in the series for the third straight year, ended her series career having allowed only one run in 55 innings. It was the seventh consecutive title for Naples and the Braves' 10th in the past 16 years.
