Apaches score early, fly past Bruins

A seven-run first inning from the Wabash softball team was more than enough on Monday for the Apaches to secure their first win of the season, downing Blackford 11-2 on the road.

A hit-by-pitch and a pair of walks in the opening frame set up a two-RBI single from Sydney Osborn to kick off the scoring for Wabash. A walk to Hannah Halverson loaded the bases once more and Tabatha Wagner continued the scoring by reaching on an error, allowing a third run to score.

Taylor Mettler’s bases-loaded walk brought in the fourth run, Kelsie Olinger’s RBI groundout provided the fifth run and Whitney Working capped off the scoring with a two-out, two-RBI single, giving Wabash its 7-0 lead.

The Apaches tacked on one run apiece in the third, fourth, fifth and sixth innings while all of Blackford’s scoring came in the fifth.

Halverson finished 3-for-3 with two runs and an RBI on the day while Working had three RBIs on one hit. Alivia Short scored three times on the day while Mettler scored twice.

In the center circle, Wagner went the distance to earn the win, allowing four hits and two runs, neither earned, with nine strikeouts and three walks.

Wabash was back in action on Tuesday against Mississinewa but results were unavailable as of Plain Dealer deadline. The Apaches will host Marion on Friday.
