Raiders split two games at Lynnville
JEWELL – A monster third inning did the trick for the Collins-Maxwell-Baxter softball team in a 10-0 thumping of South Hamilton in six innings Monday at Jewell.
The Raiders broke a scoreless tie in a big way in the third inning with a stunning nine-run outburst. That was more than enough to get the job done, but CMB decided to end things one inning early by plating an unanswered run in the top of the sixth to get the game called on account of the 10-run rule.
Cheyanne Warne, Taylor Ross and freshman Megan Ritter did most of the damage for CMB on offense as they each went 3-for-4. Warne doubled and drove in two runs, Ross stole two bases and scored once and Ritter tallied two runs and RBI apiece.
Abby Applegate also stepped up big by going 2-for-4 with three RBI. Mackenzie Schmitz went 1-for-3 with a walk, steal, run and RBI; Courtney Ubben was 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs and Becky Williams finished 1-for-3 with one run and RBI apiece.
Anna Peters also scored twice, Brittany Peterson walked and scored and Elizabeth Jones stole a base for CMB.
Warne was the victorious pitcher for the Raiders as she allowed just two hits and tallied eight strikeouts and three walks in six innings. The victory put CMB at 2-8 on the season and 1-4 in the Heart of Iowa Conference.
