Wednesday’s Prep Softball: T-Wolves Cross the Pass to Lace La Salle
By The Chronicle
YAKIMA — Morton-White Pass took a trip over the mountains and put the Lightning in a bottle as they defeated La Salle 27-10 in non-league softball action.
The four inning game featured only 10 hits by the Timberwolves but the visitors milked 14 walks and nine hit batters in order to nurse their way to the blowout victory.
“It was an ugly game,” noted Morton-White Pass coach Rob Hazen. “They don’t have much pitching over there.”
The T-Wolves plated nine runs in the first, seven in the second, five in the third and sixth in the fourth. Hailey Brooks was 2-for-3 with a pair of walks and an inside the park home run. Emmalee Hazen added a triple for the winners.
“We had 18 kids who got to play. Everyone got a chance to bat and some of the young ones that we were trying to take a look at had big hits,” added Coach Hazen. “ The new girls that came in that we wanted to look at were Rylie Dantinne, she had a single, and Tatiana Brown had a nice single and a RBI. Lizzy Nichols also had a nice RBI single.”
The second game of what was supposed to be a doubleheader in the Palm Springs of Washington was cancelled after an injury to a La Salle player forced the team’s only coach to take a trip to the hospital. The T-Wolves made a stop for Miners burgers on the trip home in order to make the most of their roadtrip.
MWP (6-1, 4-1 league) will host Onalaska for a doubleheader on Friday in Morton.
