It wasn't something she wanted brought to her attention in the dugout.
And it wasn't a matter of being rude to teammates, either. It was a matter of following the age-old tradition of not speaking about a perfect game until it's in the official book.
Now, with her team advancing past Danville with a 4-0 win, Milton's Kristi Weaver, who tossed a perfect game, will be more than happy to talk about her performance throughout the semifinal round of the District 4 Class AAA playoffs.
"I don't think about it at all, because I'll screw myself up," Weaver said.
And with that, Weaver proved she easily blocked inning after inning out as she cruised past Danville's lineup.
"When all her pitches are working, she is good to go," Milton coach Bill Keefer said.
In the fifth inning, Weaver stopped a hard line drive hit back at her and fielded a grounder to end the inning. It was a pivotal moment for Weaver, who faced two of the three full-counts she battled in the inning.
Tara Fitz opened the fifth with a nine-pitch at-bat, ultimately getting out when Weaver snagged a hard liner back at her. A strikeout later, Weaver faced her second full-count of the inning.
Sara Watkins went the distance against Weaver, fouling off two hard fastballs to keep the at-bat alive. Watkins then tapped a soft grounder back to Weaver, which was easily turned into the final out of the inning.
"My drop has been working really well for me," Weaver said. "I've just been hitting my spots."
The 21-pitch effort to get through the fifth seemed like a distant memory when compared to the next inning.
Weaver used three pitches to get through the sixth, ending the inning with a diving catch.
Weaver got Kendra Betz to bite on a rise ball, popping the ball up directly in front of the circle. A diving Weaver called off all defenders and dove, catching the ball and holding it in her glove before crashing to the ground.
"I didn't know where it was and thought I might as well try for it," Weaver said. "I knew, perfect game or not, you have to catch that ball."
"I hate when she dives," Keefer said with a laugh.
Milton only needed one inning to produce four runs, capitalizing off two errors and two walks in the first.
"It was nice to get four runs right away," Keefer said. "It allows everybody to relax. We felt pretty good after getting four in the first."
After Danville loaded the bases with poor fielding and two free passes, Linea Brouse took advantage by ripping a two-RBI single through the infield.
It was exactly the kind of start Milton needed after being blanked 2-0 by Williamsport to end the season.
The offense continued a batter after Brouse gave the Black Panthers the lead when Bethany Brennan added the team's second two-RBI single of the inning.
