PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Marshall sweeps Redwood Valley

REDWOOD FALLS – Marshall moved its record to 10-6 on the season, breaking out of their slump after losing three of the last four, with two wins over Redwood Valley Tuesday night.

Marshall won the first contest 5-2 and the second contest 7-4. The Tigers erased a 3-0 deficit in the second game and came from behind to earn the victory.

Marshall coach Jack Houseman was pleased with the way his team performed on offense and defense.

“Miranda pitched really well,” Houseman said. “She was hitting the corners and pitching to her spots. The defense did a good job of making plays behind her. It took us awhile to get the bats going, but it’s getting better.”

In game one, Miranda Fischer finished with three hits, including a double and an RBI. Graff added two hits and an RBI. Fischer picked up the win in the pitching circle, striking out 10.

In game two, Fischer and Graff each had two RBI to go with two RBI from Emily Mortier and three hits from Callie Graff. Jocelyn Wenker added three hits of her own.
