Rae Sisson was 2-for-2 with a triple and three RBI and Kaiya Larson was 3-for-3 with a triple and two RBI.

The game resumed with the Tigers up 12-1 in the bottom of the third inning. Napavine scored one run in the fourth and fifth innings to complete the win.
“Offensively, we’ve been hitting the ball and playing pretty well. Today, in the two games, I was very happy,” Napavine coach Chad Williams said. “Mossyrock game, we didn’t have any errors. It sure makes it a lot easier when you don’t give extra outs to the other team so that was good.”

Morton-White Pass Defeats Kittitas, Falls to Cle Elum
KITTITAS — Morton-White Pass earned a win against Kittitas in their first game but fell to Cle Elum in their second game here in non-league softball action on Thursday.
MWP earned a 24-23 win over Kittitas. Hannah Smathers was 2-for-4 with a triple and two RBI and Jaiden Linder hit a three RBI triple. Emmalee Hazen hit a RBI triple and added a sacrifice fly and Kylie Davis had a RBI single and a sacrifice fly.

Hailey Brooks, Smathers and Hazen each had a hit and Smathers knocked in the only run of the game for MWP.
Cle Elum scored at least two runs in each inning, recording five runs in the first inning and six runs in the fourth inning.
“It was a little different speed. The Cle Elum girl threw hard and we didn’t adjust, too many strikeouts. The wind was real bad, we just couldn’t track the ball down,” MWP coach Rob Hazen said. “We kind of wore down in the heat and the wind. We played good in the first game, they hit the ball pretty good.”
MWP (12-6, 8-5) travels to Mossyrock on Monday for a doubleheader. The first game is a league game while the second game is a non-league contest.
