Softball team loses to Northfield, has another game rained out

The weather once again played havoc with the New Prague Trojan softball schedule. After having their Mankato tournament postponed once and then cancelled altogether, rains forced postponement of their April 20 game at Prior Lake. The Trojans have played just three games this season, and are 0-3.

The Prior Lake game will be made up Tuesday, May 2, at 4:15 p.m.

Also on their schedule the Trojans will travel to Hutchinson Friday, April 28, and next week play at Waseca Monday, May 1, and at Holy Angels Wednesday, May 3.

Raiders 5, Trojans 0

The Trojans committed four errors, leading to five unearned runs, and that was the difference in their 5-0 loss to Northfield April 18.

Starter Katie Trewartha faced the minimum of nine batters through three innings, with an error giving Northfield their only baserunner in the second inning. She was thrown out stealing.

But things started to come apart for the Trojans in the fourth inning. An error allowed a runner to reach base and a pair of singles and another error gave the Raiders a 1-0 lead.

In the fifth, the Raiders’ leadoff hitter walked and reached second on an error. Trewartha retired the next two batters, on a pop up and a strikeout, but a single and a triple brought in two runs. After a walk, Alex Wagner came in to pitch. A base hit brought in another run before she struck out the next batter.

A walk and another error in the sixth inning gave Northfield their final run.

New Prague had just two hits. Amanda Stocker had a one-out triple in the sixth and Anna Witty had a one-out double in the second.

The Trojans stranded three runners at third base during the game.

Trewartha pitched 4-2/3 innings, taking the loss. She allowed four hits and four runs, none earned, while striking out two. Wagner pitched 2-1/3 innings, allowing one hit and one run, unearned, while striking out two.
