PREP SOFTBALL: Marshall walks over Montevideo

MARSHALL – The Marshall Tigers scored single tallies in four different innings en route to a 4-1 non-conference home win against Montevideo on Tuesday.

In the first inning, MHS received three walks before a fielder’s choice off the bat of Jayme Citrowske sent home Madison Radel with the first run of the game. Marshall went ahead 2-0 in the third, when Citrowske walked, went to second on a sacrifice bunt, before eventually scoring on a passed ball.

After the Thunder Hawks scored a run in the top of the fourth, the Tigers answered with a bases-loaded walk to Jocelyn Wenker in the bottom half of the frame. Ashley Bernardy’s sixth-inning RBI single drove in Radel, who hit a double earlier in the sixth inning.

Montevideo added a run in the seventh before Marshall preserved the win.

Miranda Fischer was the winning pitcher after striking out nine, walking six, allowing four hits and two runs (one earned) in seven innings.
