Tuesday’s 2A Softball: Strasser, Bearcats Shut Out Tumwater

TUMWATER — W.F. West’s Lexie Strasser pitched a complete game one-hitter, helping the Bearcats earn an 8-0 win over rival Tumwater in an Evergreen 2A Conference softball game here Tuesday.

Strasser struck out nine and walked one, and only allowed a bunt single in seven innings of work. She was also 4 for 4 at the plate with a double and a two-run home run in the seventh.

Paetynn Lopez hit a two-run homer in the third inning, and Kyndra Haller and Kindra Davis each had two hits for the Bearcats.

W.F. West scored four runs in the first inning, and the homers in the third and seventh innings paved the way to the win.

“Anytime you can be practicing in a gym for weeks at a time and not make an error, that’s an accomplishment,” W.F. West coach Mike Keen said. “Lexie took care of things in the circle, and the bats were making contact today.”

W.F. West (4-1, 2-0) is back in action Wednesday, going back to Tumwater to face Black Hills in an EvCo matchup.
Bobcats Rally Late to Bump Centralia

The Tigers started off on the right foot, but a few quiet innings and some timely Aberdeen hitting helped the Bobcats come from behind for a 13-5 win in Evergreen 2A Conference softball play on Tuesday at Fort Borst Park.

Centralia led 5-0 after two innings, but Aberdeen scored 12 of its runs in the last three frames to come back and win.

“We did some great things — came out, hit the ball hard, got some big hits and did some good stuff,” Centralia coach Mike McDonald said. “Then the bats kind of went to sleep for a while, and Aberdeen kept fighting back. They hit the ball hard, and we didn’t make some plays.”

Hannah Porter went 3 for 4 with a double and two RBIs for Centralia, while Mckenna Smith was 3 for 4 with an RBI and a double. Jasmine Reyna went 2 for 3 and drove in a run.

Reagan Glanz, Angel Jones and Stephanie Stopsen all homered for Aberdeen, though each team had 13 hits.

Centralia (2-4, 0-3 league) plays W.F. West in Chehalis on Thursday and hosts Rochester on Friday.
Rochester Fends Off Black Hills

ROCHESTER — Rochester scored two runs in the sixth inning to take the lead and held on in the seventh to earn a 3-2 win over Black Hills in an Evergreen 2A Conference softball game here on Tuesday.

Delaney Glazer pitched all seven innings, allowing three hits while striking out nine batters, and coach Jared Lancaster noted that Glazer is growing into a leader for the Warriors.

Hunter Hahn was 2 for 3, Jessica Girardin was 3 for 3 and Lexi Trombley had a three-run double in the sixth to put the Warriors ahead.

“They’re starting to gel right now. It was one of the first times we’ve had all of our starters play,” Lancaster said. “Black Hills is a tough team; their pitching was solid. They were able to hit their spots. We were fortunate in the sixth.”

Rochester (4-4, 1-2 league) travels to face Aberdeen on Thursday in an EvCo matchup.
