WARSAW – Mishawaka continued to capitalize on its chances and made a winner of itself Wednesday.
Two runs in the fourth and another two in the sixth were enough for the Cavemen to piece together a 6-1 softball win over the Tigers.
Warsaw committed four errors in the contest while Mishawaka was spotless in the field. All four errors led to runs.
Tied at one in the fourth, a two-out Warsaw error proved costly as Jordan Herczeg came around to score on the play, and Anna Carpenter then doubled in the second run that included a second error during the run of play. Two more two-out errors in the sixth brought in two more Caveman runs, and Megan Fry added the exclamation point in the seventh with a solo homer.
Carpenter and Fry both had three hits for Mishawaka and combined to drive in three and score three on the night.
Warsaw managed just four hits on the Mishawaka pitching combo of Fry and Chloe Plunkett. Warsaw got on the board for its only run in the second when Courtney Chookie singled and later came around on a Fry wild pitch. Katie Anderson, Hudson Bolinger and Lindsey Bradley all had singles for the Tigers.
Fry got the win, working four innings of three-hit, one-run ball. Chookie took the loss, allowing three earned and striking out seven.
Warsaw (0-1) is off until April 9 when it will host East Noble.
