Osakis cruised to an easy 14-4 victory over Upsala to stay perfect on the season and in the Prairie Conference as the Silverstreaks begin their march toward defending their conference championship.
“We started the game very strong,” said Osakis head coach John Stigman of his team’s early 10-0 advantage. “We jumped out to an early big lead. We were very aggressive at the plate and on the bases. We broke the game open early in the first and second innings, then tacked on some insurance.
“About mid-game, the momentum shifted to Upsala, so we had to get back the edge we had at the start. In the bottom of the fifth, we were able to get the momentum back and ended the game.
“Sabrina [Zimmel] had a solid start in the circle for us today and a big day at the plate,” he added. “Rachelle Rajdl also had a breakout game for us.”
Zimmel went the distance, allowing just four runs, three earned, on four hits and four walks, striking out 11. She also went 3-for-4 at the plate with a double, triple and a home run to account for seven runs batted in.
Rajdl was 3-for-3 with one RBI, while Alex Anderson went 3-3 and scored three runs.
